Wow! How is it the Summer term already? We have kicked off the term with an engaging hook into our new topic. We will be learning abut Achievements and Legacies and who we think has made the biggest impact on the world we live in today. Below you can see how our topic was revealed. Mrs Adams found what we worked out to be a time capsule and we used the items inside to work out what our topic was going to be.
WoW – We had the most exciting Science Week. We visited the Winchester Science Centre, had a workshop with Mr G and some talks from real life Scientists, as well as a Science Fayre where children from all year groups showed their At Home Science Projects. Look at the pictures below to see what we got up to.
We had a fantastic trip to South Wilts for a workshop. Take a look below at how we used Science to solve the mystery of the Bunny Killer…… we had some much fun, we were all so engaged and enjoyed using the Science equipment on offer.
In R.E – We have been looking at the question “How can God bring Peace and Justice?”. 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.
