Spring Term We have been looking at the question “How can God bring Peace and Justice?”- in R.E this term. We have been firstly looking at the story of Moses in lots of detail. We were lucky enough to have the Bridge Project come in and do a workshop to further deepen our understanding of our topic. We had lots of fun acting out the story and thinking about how Moses would have felt taking on the massive challenge.
Class 5 are fully immersed in their new topic ‘Shake It Up’ (Structures and Buildings). Their first challenge was to build a structure that included: spaghetti, newspaper, sugar cubes and art straws – that could with hold a 1kg weight. They were given time to think about their designs before they were let lose with the resources. This is what they made:
This term Class 5 are going to explore and research a range of buildings from around the world and look and compare different designs- leading to an end project of designing and making a structure that will survive an Earthquake (or Angry Bird attack!). It will be interesting to see how the designs differ from the beginning to the end of term……..Watch this space!
|Class 5 visited the Laverstock Community Farm on Monday 22nd October. It was a beautiful autumnal day and they got to collect eggs, hold the hens and feed the other animals- as well as learning lots of other animal facts along the way!|
We have been keeping VERY active this term with our daily “Take 5’ Challenge, Super Movers, as well as joining in every Monday with Miss Dallard’s Revive sessions- it helps keep us fit but also helps with our concentration too.
Class 5 have been working hard on their part of the whole school Harvest Festival. They performed the song ‘Let’s Harvest’ but they also signed along to the words with MAKATON. It has been hard to learn and they did a brilliant job. There is singing, signing, instruments and some visual pictures too! We hope all the parents and children enjoyed it.
Our first topic for the year is Volcanoes and Earthquakes and we’ve had an ‘EXPLOSIVE’ start. Wiltshire Scrap Store came in to lead a workshop enabling us to make our own volcano scenes using recycled materials.
