What a great first term 5G! I am so proud of how far you have come since September. It was such a joy to be able to give you your awards on Friday for your excellent effort throughout the term. They were so thoroughly deserved!
We had so much fun listening to Christmas songs, playing party games and just enjoying our last day in school before the new year. I will miss you all over the holiday period but I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and a very happy new year!
See you in 2021!
This week we continued our learning of Changes of States and conducted an experiment to explore an irreversible change. Firstly, we poured baking soda into a balloon using a filter. Then, we poured vinegar into a bottle. We then attached the balloon onto the top of the bottle and what happened next blew our minds as much as the balloon! When the baking soda and vinegar mixed together, it created a gas called carbon dioxide. As the gas began to expand, it inflated the balloon! You all had so much fun with this and it was great to see how much you learnt from the experiment!
See you on Monday to begin our week full of festive fun!
We finished the week with an exciting experiment in Science! We investigated how to separate different mixtures. Our mixtures were: salt and water, rice and paper clips, flour and raisins and sand and water. After being given a tray with a sieve, a funnel, a magnet and a piece of filter paper, you all had a great go at working out how to separate each mixture. It was lovely to see how much fun you all had as well as the fantastic work you produced when recording your findings!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you all on Monday!
We started our new DT project by researching some of the world’s most famous frame structures- the Eiffel Tower and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Did you know that the icon of the French capital was only intended to be temporary? Yet 131 years later it still stands proudly at 300 metres tall! What other fun facts can you recall from our lesson?
We finished the week by experimenting with everyday materials in Science. We compared and grouped objects based on their properties. Next week, we’re going to build on this and look at why objects are made of certain materials!
Have a lovely weekend guys! 😊
What a great start to the half term 5G! It was so lovely seeing all of your smiling faces back in school!
We’ve been so busy this week; from finishing our final pieces for Art to completing our own pieces of action writing! I’ve been so proud to see how hard you’ve all worked. I was also really impressed to see how many children have shown me outstanding behaviour this week. How exciting are the new prizes for outstanding behaviour? Remember, when you reach 100 ‘Outstandings’, you are entered into a raffle for the chance to win a scooter! How cool is that?!
Have a good weekend. See you on Monday 😊
On Tuesday, we created some beautiful technical drawings in Art. It was lovely to see the attention everyone paid to drawing the ‘vanishing point’ to capture perspective in your landscapes. Did you know the concept of the ‘vanishing point’ is believed to have been created during the Italian Renaissance period (1415), shortly before Leonardo da Vinci was born!
I just wanted to add how proud I am to see how hard a lot of you have worked with your homework tasks; from creating stop-motion animations to writing detailed biographies, I have been so impressed with the hard work and effort shown.
Have a lovely rest of your weekend! 😊
We ended our week on a ‘sweet’ note when we investigated which type of chocolate (milk, white or dark) melted the fastest. I was so impressed with the vigilance you showed when considering the conditions of your experiments. You ensured results were fair and accurate!
In History we learned the terrible truth of how Anglo-Saxon children were treated. Did you know that by the age of 10, children were seen as adults? They had to work as hard as any adult and would be punished as adults if they broke the law!
Have a great weekend 5G! See you all on Monday! 😊
Another busy week!
This week I was so proud when awarding children for their ‘Outstanding’ behaviour. We ended a great week on a really positive note that brightened my day despite the grey, rainy weather! ☀️
We had so much fun in Science this week; we observed water in three different states of matter (a liquid, solid and gas). Throughout our lesson, we watched ice cubes melt on different surfaces to investigate the speed of which ice melts on different materials. Who knew watching ice would be so ‘cool’?!
I have loved seeing all of your amazing drawings in Art this week. I’m so excited for next week when we will start drawing our self-portraits! Da Vinci most certainly would be proud!
See you on Monday! 😊
We’ve had so much fun, from becoming journalists reporting the mysterious disappearance of Ernest Brightstorm in English, to rocking out to Bon Jovi in Music! In Maths, we finished our Place Value work off by learning about Roman Numerals. I, for one (pardon the pun), am so impressed with how hard you worked!
I am also loving to see some of your homework coming in. Please keep it up! 😊
Have a lovely weekend!
You all worked really hard this week. I was especially impressed with how engaged you were during RE. You came up with lots of thoughtful, creative responses when thinking of ways to care for our world. I was also proud to see how hard you worked in History when we started learning about the Anglo-Saxons. I definitely see some future historians in the classroom!
Enjoy the rest of the sunshine and see you on Monday for another great week! 😊
