Welcome to our class page. 

The children have come back from the break ready to do their best!  I hope you enjoy seeing pictures of them in action.

Dance

We have been developing a dance based on being on a rollercoaster.  

 

Drumming

We are learning to play the Djembe drum - a traditional West African instrument.  Listen to us playing a poly rhythm.  Each group is playing a different rhythm at the same time.

Maths

In Maths we prove why things work and then find efficient ways to use this knowledge. Our 'awesome arrays' led to us multiplying using the grid method.

Science

In our materials topic we have compared materials, dissolved solids in liquids to make solutions and separated materials in different ways by experimenting and planning investigations.

Healthy lifestyles

We thought about healthy lifestyles in DT with our Rimrose Bake Off challenge; to make a unique bread roll to accompany a bowl of soup.  We kept our minds healthy with yoga sessions and enjoyed being active when orienteering and playing Quidditch.

STEM

Calling all future engineers

The children took part in an RAF funded young engineers event. They designed and made gliders then tested and evaluated them.

History - chronology

We read a book called 'Child of the Civil Rights Movement' which told the story of a child living in the USA at this time.   This led to research about Martin Luther King Jr.  We wondered what was happening in the UK at the same point in history, which led us to research Dame Jocelyn Barrow.  Our research showed us that their lives crossed in 1964. The children produced time lines showing this.

Art - Watercolours

The children compared different work by JMW Turner, thinking about tone, technique, space and mood.   They practised watercolour skills and produced a Turner inspired sea scape.

 

DT - Fairground rides

The children were challenged to design and make a rotating fairground ride with a switch to turn the ride on and off.

 

Congratulations to our winning designers: Tyarmey Campion and Cain Jones smiley

Science - Electricity

The children have been investigating circuits - building them, changing components to look at the effect and drawing them in symbols.

Equality and diversity workshop

Peter Yip worked with the children to develop their understanding of equality and treating everyone with respect and care.
