Moving Forward, Aiming High!


Welcome to 5S!

We are taught by Miss Swain and supported in class by Mrs Brown.



Come and look at all the wonderful things we have been learning about this year!

Autumn Two

In Science, we have been investigating the properties of different materials and discussing why certain objects are made from certain materials. We carried out a range of tests to see if objects were flexible, strong, absorbent, transparent or magnetic.

Our new Geography topic is Where do Rivers Come From? For our Sensational Starter, after thinking about the colours and textures that we might see in a river, we used oil pastels to create a section of the river. This was then all put together to create a corridor display where all of our fabulous river poetry is currently being displayed!

In Science this term we are learning all about properties of materials. After learning about the effects of plastic pollution on the environment, we worked as beach clean up teams to separate the rubbish from a sample sent to us from the beach.

Autumn One

For our Magical Middle we worked as chefs in a restaurant to make Mayan guacamole. Then we got to try our dish with tasty tortilla chips!

For our Writing experience day, we tasted hot chocolate to help us to generate different ideas using our senses.

In Maths we have been learning all about lines of symmetry. We investigated the lines of symmetry in 2D shapes by cutting them our and folding them.

The Wonder Dome visited school and we experienced a journey through space, taking a look around the International Space Station.

For our Sensational Starter, Newhall Archaeologists had a mysterious box delivered to school. First we had to work out where the box had come from using the clues on the outside. After working out it had come from Guatemala, we opened it up to find a Mayan calendar inside.

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

In Science this week, we have been discussing Gravity. We discussed how Gravity is an invisible force that pulls objects toward each other. Earth's gravity is what keeps us on the ground and what makes things fall. Watch the video to see how astronauts do not really feel the effects of Gravity in Space!

In Writing, we have been writing a Narrative based on The Great Chocoplot by Chris Callaghan. To kick off this unit, we read an extract from the story where Jelly is watching a programme about the rainforest on Easter Egg Island. In order to help us to imagine what it was like to be there, we created out own forest floor and used our senses to help us come up with powerful vocabulary to describe it.
