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!

Spring Term

We really enjoyed our trip to The National Space Centre!

After building our boats in DT, we then needed to test them. We tested them to see if they floated, to see how much weight they could hold and if they were able to travel.

We have been learning about the different phases of the Moon in Science. We used Oreos to create our own models!

In PSHE, we have been talking about our dreams and goals. In this lesson, we were talking about the dreams and goals that children from other cultures may have and creating dream spirals.

This term's Science topic is 'To Infinity and Beyond!' during which we are learning all about the solar system. In today's lesson, we have been discussing the distance different planets are from the Sun. Some of our predictions were pretty close! See the last photo for the correct answer.

In English, we have been learning about Persuasive Writing. Our first task was to take a really boring object - such as a roll of sellotape - and try and sell it to the rest of the class. Our presentations were really good!

In DT this term, our Topic is Whatever Floats Your Boat. We are learning about different types of boats and by the end of the term we will have built our own boat out of lollipop sticks. In this lesson, we were designing our own boats,

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.
