Year 5 – Miss Lockwood

Welcome to the Chocolate Hills Class Page!


Our class is named after the amazing Chocolate Hills in the Philippines.  


This half term we have researched this geological formation and found out how they were formed.  We have also used chalk, charcoal, paint and colouring pencils to create our own chocolate hills for our class display.

Spring Term

For most of the term, we worked from home.  We found out about volcanoes and earthquakes and when we returned to school, we made our own volcano.  We left room for a bottle and filled it with vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.  Then, we stood back and watched it explode!

We also looked at the impact of earthquakes and where in the world they happen.  We discovered that there are over 20000 earthquakes a year and that in some countries buildings are designed to be earthquake-proof.

Using straws and blue tac, we designed and built our own earthquake-proof structure and placed it on a bed of jelly to see which one could withstand the force!

Our Science topic was materials and we spent an afternoon filtering, sieving and separating a dirty solution.


Anderson Shelters

This half term, we have designed and made Anderson shelters.  We found out that they were built during the second world war and were created using a kit provided by the government.

Here we are, busy at work, creating our own:
