Autumn Term 2

This half term, we have continued to enjoy our Victorian Topic and have taken part in a variety of activities and trips.  These include:  being taught by a Victorian school teacher for an afternoon; visiting Hinkley Point Power Station; and enjoying a production of the Christmas Carol at Exeter's Northcott Theatre.

 

Here are some of our thoughts:

 

Rebecca:  I liked it when the lady, Mrs Noble, came into class, because she was really scary and acted like a Victorian teacher.  I also enjoyed the Christmas Carol trip because it was really amazing to see it in a show!  I liked Hinkley Point as it was interesting.

Jemma:  I enjoyed looking at how electricity was made- it was amazing!  The Christmas Carol was loud, but awesome, and our seats were the best in the theatre.

Josh:  I enjoyed going to the theatre as it was fun to listen to Scrooge moan and shout "Humbug".  We had really good seats so we could see everything on stage, and it was cool when the third ghost came on.

Oskar:  I really loved it when the Victorian teacher came in.  We needed to wear clothes from these times and behave well.  There was a lot of shouting and the teacher scared me.

Tia:  I really liked the Hinkley Point trip, because it was really interesting and I liked the ear protectors!  I also enjoyed the Christmas Carol and the Victorian day, because the Christmas Carol seemed real, and the Victorian Teacher was really good at acting.

 

 

 

 

Spring Term 1.
In our topic on Bridges, our first challenge was to work in small groups to make an arch bridge.  This involved making different size blocks from nets, and then trying to get them to stand up to make a bridge.  This was quite hard to achieve and some groups found it rather frustrating!  Here is a picture to show that one group did achieve it.

During our Design and Technology lessons, we have been working in small groups designing and constructing our own bridges.

Spring Term 2.
Geography.
On Monday 29th February, we went out of class to undertake some Geography fieldwork.  We looked at the impact of the building industry on our local area, and did some map-work.  We have also been discussing in class what we would do with the unused piece of land next our school, if we were in charge of developing it.  We will then be drawing maps of our designs.

Summer Term.

Our main class project this term, is to bring the school garden back to life, after being inspired by reading "The Secret Garden" in class.  So far, we have been doing the essential digging and weeding.  We are nearly ready to start planting all the plants that we have been growing- or have bought.  We have also been lucky enough to receive some daffodils from Skansa, which have been dug up during  the roundabout redevelopment work nearby.  Here is a photo of the ambassadors receiving some of them:

Art and DT.

 

To finish off our Anglo-Saxon topic, we have been designing and making clay brooches.  These have been painted and here they are:

Summer Term 2 

 

Our main highlights this half term, have included preparing for our Malachi Performance and our trip to Crealy.

 

We were all really proud of our 2 Malachi shows and received lots of positive comments about our singing, especially the enthusiasm we put into it and our volume that we achieved!

 

We are now busy rehearsing for our Leavers Assembly.
