Orford CEVA Primary School


CEVA Primary School

Class 3 - Y5, Y6

Welcome to class 3 - home to years 5 and 6. In class 3, We begin to use our experiences to broaden our knowledge and explore new ideas. With secondary education in mind, we also work on building confidence and self-esteem, ready for the challenges a new school can bring. 

Our history theme this term is Maya. We will be using historical sources to make inferences from the past, looking at how their unique geography promoted different trading opportunities and discovering more about their lifestyle and culture,

Our science topics are materials and forces, Class 3 will complete many practical investigations to increase our understanding of these concepts, report their findings in different ways, and make recommendations and draw conclusions from the data they collect.

We are studying Macbeth in English, through reading Andrew Matthews'  brilliant retelling of this classic tale of witches, murder and madness! Whilst reading this text we will be writing play scripts, letters, poems, persuasive speeches, balanced arguments and journalistic writing. We are also singing songs from the BBC School's Music, click here to practise the songs! Macbeth BBC Music songs


In art we have experimented with shading, tone and colour! We tried self-portraits given only 2 colours. With these colours, class 3 needed to mix different tones to represent the light and shade on their faces. Meet class 3 below!
