Buttermere Y4&5


In Buttermere there are 28 of us and we are great learners. Our class teacher is Mrs Clark.  In Buttermere our main class councillors are Ryan and Thomas and our shadows are Ellis and Chase.


We have decided on some class rules to help us with our learning.

  • We always tell the truth.
  • We listen to the person who is speaking
  • We are respectful to others.
  • We focus on our learning.
  • We don’t interfere!


We are really enjoying our learning, in the Autumn term we were creating our own cartoons in our computing lessons, learning about Earth, Sun and Moon and human bodies in Science. We drew cave art with chalks and charcoal in art lessons and learning about the Stone Age in history. In P.E we worked with Miss Potter and Mrs Sewell as well as Mr Bird and Mrs Greenwood. Our P.E days are Thursday and Friday. The Year 5’s have been learning to play the clarinet or flute for the first time this year, and are really enjoying the challenge. In D.T we created shelters, in R.E we learnt about religion in different countries. Our trip was to see Mayburgh Henge, near Eamont Bridge where we  discovered more about the Stone Age.


During Spring term we have been learning about the Shang Dynasty in our History lessons. We decorated our own topic books using a Batik technique with hot wax. Our teachers are planning a special Chinese banquet for the end of this term. In Science we have been learning about Electricity and took part in a workshop with STEM.  We are really enjoying our weekly swimming lessons at the Leisure centre.  We enjoy all subjects and we always try our best.
