Summer 2 - Computing

Pupils worked in partners to deepen their understanding of programming vocabulary. This made it easier to debug the problems that the partnerships were encountering. 

Summer 2 - Ancient Greek Olympics

Over the course of this PE unit, we have perfected our skills in the Ancient Greece sports of the Olympics. We focussed on the original activities each week culminating in our final performance. We continued to try beating our personal bests and also our city competed against other Ancient Greek cities. This used our historical knowledge as well as our understanding of how to improve our sporting skills. 

Summer 2 - Science

We used our knowledge of how sounds are made to create a telephone. We knew that sounds used vibrations to pass through their a string or air to get to our ears. Making the telephone helped us to deepen and strengthen our understanding and see vibrations happening in action! 

Summer 1 - Cricket

This half term, we have been lucky enough to have a cricket coach teaching us how to bowl accurately. We have to keep our hands straight and if you keep your hands straight and your arms then the ball will go further. We know how to hold the ball with two fingers on the seam of the ball. To be a successful batter you need to have your feet in the correct place.  

Spring 2 - PE

We used our knowledge, built upon from learning last year, to put our hockey skills into a competitive game. We thought carefully about how to attack and defend with the appropriate tackle. 

Autumn 2 - Music

This week we continued to deepen our knowledge of notation and reading music. We learned how to play the festive tune, Jingle Bells which we’re hoping to perform later in the term. 

Autumn 1 - Art

We focussed on how to hold the paintbrush correctly so that our grip was loose and helped us to have fluid movements in our paint. It also helped us not to saturate the brush in water. 

Autumn 1 - DT

We used our knowledge of circuits to begin making our light-up Christmas cards. We had copper adhesive tape acting as our wires. We needed to carefully fold the tape which was very fiddly so that we could get the electricity to pass through the circuit successfully.  

When the card is closed, the LED lights up to complete our design. We were so impressed with ourselves! 

Autumn 1 - Science

We tried to separate light. We predicted that light was white but when we put it through the glass prism, it came out like a rainbow. It’s a bit hard to see on the photos but we could see blue, green and red.

Autumn 1 - English

We chose a key point from chapter 2 of The Street Child to freeze frame. We thought carefully from the character’s view point about the event. This helped us to empathise with the characters to understand why they were saying it behaving in a particular way. 
 

We understand how the author has made us dislike Mr Spink and feel sorry for Jim Jarvis and his family. We can’t wait to read more...
