5S

Welcome to 5S!

We are taught by Miss Swain and supported in class by Mrs Cooper and many other wonderful adults.

 

Come and look at all the wonderful things that we have been learning in class this year!

Autumn Term

In History this week we have been learning about the class system in Ancient Mayan times. After finding out lots of information, we then became Rulers, Priests, Nobles, Merchants, Peasants and Slaves and hot seated each other to find out more about what life may have been like for each group of people during those times.

Wet Washcloth In Space - What Happens When You Wring It?

This week in Science we have been learning all about gravity. To start our lesson we watched a video of International Space Station commander Chris Hadfield wringing out a wet wash cloth in space. We were amazed to see what happened!

 

We then watched Miss Swain carry out the same experiment and that got us thinking: why did the water do something different in space?

We then completed our own balloon experiment. We were investigating why the balloon always fell back down to the ground.

We kicked off our new English topic of Journalistic Writing this week by completing a mantle. We became expert archaeologists and on Monday morning we had a parcel delivered from our dig site in Guatemala; however, the Curator from the British Museum came to tell us that they were going to take it away. We had to decide what was best: should we keep it or should we send it to the British Museum?

In English, we are writing instructions. We spent the lesson creating Mayan Worry Dolls to help take our worries away and we will be writing our instructions about them later in the week.

Silly Billy by Anthony Browne

 

In the story Silly Billy, Billy's grandmother teaches him all about the Mayan Worry Dolls and how they can stop him from worrying all the time.

We have kicked off our new History topic, the Mighty Mayans, by building our own Mighty Mayan temples.
