Children in Need

 

We had a fantastic response from the children for Children In Need and they had a fun day and raised money for a very good cause at the same time. Thank you to you all. Below there are photos of the children from Friday. Who do you think had the best Children in Need outfit?

This week the children have been thinking about ways in which they are unique, to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week. On Monday we had a great range of odd socks worn to school. Choose your favourite from the photos below.

Following this the children created their own sock design which they felt would represent who they are and how they are unique individuals.

Week 6

The highlight of the week was the class visit to Jodrell Bank. The children enjoyed the visit and learnt lots to support their learning in class about Earth and Space. They particularly liked the whispering dishes, where a person 60 metres away could hear you whispering.

Week 5

On Monday the children were learning about how telescopes work and how they are used to study the stars and planets. They experimented using a pair of magnifying glasses and then used these to make their own telescopes.

 

 

 

 

 

On Tuesday, the children continued with their dance to represent Mayan farming. After practising their sequences, each group presented one part of the dance.

 

Digging

 

Ploughing

 

 

Sowing Seed

 

 

 

 

Watering the plants

 

 

The plants growing

 

 

Harvesting the crops

 

 

 

On Friday, the children worked in groups to present a short TV news report about an aspect of Mayan civilization. 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 4

 

This week the children enjoyed using dance to enact Mayan farmers at work. 

 

Here the children are warming up, using their bodies to create Mayan arches and temples.

 

The children begin to work in groups to act out sowing seed.

Week 3

 

This week the children were learning about why we have day and night. Using a globe, some blue-tac to represent our country and a torch to represent the Sun we demonstrated why it is light during the day and dark at night. We also thought about how sunrise and sunset happen and why it always looks like the Sun rises in the east and sets  in the west.

 

Midday - UK facing directly towards the Sun

 

 

Sunset - UK turning away from the Sun. Sun would be seen to our right (West)

 

Midnight - UK facing away from the Sun

 

Sunrise - UK turning back towards the Sun. Sun would be seen on our left (East)

The children worked in groups to walk and measure out 1 km so they can visualise how far a kilometre is and discussed how many 10m and 100m groups there were in 100m and 1 km.

They also filled 10ml syringes with water and then used these to fill a 100ml container and then used this to fill a 1 litre container to recognise how many 10ml and 100ml groups there are in 100ml and 1 litre.

Someone has been practising their 'Dele Alli' celebration too.smiley

While discussing the school value of 'being responsible' the children were learning that to act responsibly, they need to think responsibly. Thinking takes place in the brain so they all had a go at drawing what they think their brain looks like. They will be learning more about the brain later this half term.

This week the children worked together to create a fruit solar system, using fruit to represent the planets and toilet roll to represent the distance between the planets. Just for reference, each square of toilet paper represents 16 million miles.

 

Earth and Mars are tomatoes

 

 

Jupiter was a watermelon

 

 

An apple was Uranus (the children enjoyed this planet the most for some reason)

Early on this term we have been stressing the importance of children working together in a team. This team building activity proved that by working as a team the children could achieve more than they could on their own.

 smiley Welcome to the Hawks Class Page! smiley

 

              

 

We would like to welcome the children back to school after their summer holiday. We hope you all had a lovely break over the summer!

 

Our Topic this term is Mayan Mania!

 

 

 

 

This term the children will be studying the Mayans. They will be looking at Mayan Gods and their roles in Mayan life, researching Ancient Mayan calendars and the Mayan alphabet and will be discovering what life was like for people in Mayan times.

 

 

Science

 

 

In science, the children will be learning about Earth and Space. Check out the website links below to see if you can wow Mr Durrell with your space knowledge! 

 

 

 

English

 

 

The children will be studying Science Fiction in English. We have begun to discuss the features of a science fiction story and the children have been eager to share the stories that they have read.
