Spring Term 1
In music we have been learning to use the boomwhackers. They are percussion instruments that work using vibrations. The different coloured boomwhackers represent different notes.
In art we researched some contemporary African artists and attempted to create a piece of art in their style. They ranged from sketches to found item sculptures.
In PE we have been problem solving and team building through OAA. It is really important to be able to work as a team and to know how to communicate effectively.
Autumn Term 2
This term, we have been exploring forces and looked in particular at friction, air resistance and water resistance. Look at some of the experiments we carried out to test the effects of these forces that happen all around us.
In English we have been writing letters based on our topic book Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods. We wrote a letter to a judge at the Supreme Court to convince him that Kronos could not be found guilty of murder. Here’s one of the examples that we wrote.
After our letters convinced the judge we had a release party for Kronos. We acted out how the characters in the story might have behaved at the party and tried to guess who we all were.
We have been looking at statistics in maths and worked together to solve some tricky problems involving timetables.
During PE we looked at dance and even created and choreographed our own dance routine to the music of our choice. We then had a whole school dance competition.
In science we have been learning about Earth and Space. We created a profile for a planet of our choice and recorded the most interesting facts we could find.
In PSHE we have been focussing on road safety. We have been learning about road safety around the world and have made posters to raise people’s awareness of this important issue.
In PE we have been taking part in Gymnastics. We were focussing on balances and movements. You can see some of our excellent balances here.
