In another exciting term we have studied mountains with emphasis on North and South America and this will lead into creating papier mâché plates and bowls based on Peruvian art. We created our own film trailer based on narrative text using PowerPoint to great effect, embedding music and using transitions and animations to enhance the effects. We have used Flowol and Scratch to further our computer coding skills.
In RE we have been looking at inspirational people such as Florence Nightingale and Ghandi. In art we have studied the Pop Artists creating our own studies based on self-images. Our DT topic is well underway. We have designed our own vehicle bodies, made axels based on a given template and motorised them using a pulley system. Racing our vehicles will start in earnest very soon!!!
The whole year group entertained the school and parents with a fabulous show put together in a few short weeks.
Many children organised and set up their own stalls for the School Fayre and raised just short of £400. Many thanks to all the adults who put so much time and effort into supporting the children by providing goodies and items.
In our science topic this term we have looked at the Human Body and How it Works, with emphasis on the heart and how to get fit.
Our history project has been looking at the English Civil war in Worcester. We are visiting the Commandery for a series of workshops looking at battlefields and weaponry.
We have read Kensuke’s Kingdom by Roald Dahl and written our own diary extracts and created a trailer for a film.
Our art work has seen us sketching prominent buildings in Worcester.
In ICT we have been using Excel to interpret data with appropriate graphs and using formula.
We started the year with a fabulous trip to France. This is an educational visit which encourages independence, responsibility and cultural awareness and a fun day at Disneyland Paris.
The weather was amazing allowing two dips in the outside swimming pool at the PGL centre. The children were treated to a French Medieval display, toured the highlights of Paris, climbed the Eifel Tower, spent a day at Disneyland and a visit to the imposing Vimy Ridge Memorial and trenches.
The history topic of WW2 has been covered in a many other areas of the curriculum. In literacy we studied Good Night Mr Tom, read poetry written by the War poet Siegfried Sassoon and wrote our own poems. In art we looked at the perspective work of Henry Moore’s tube tunnel pictures and recreated them as well as using modrock to create our own 3D figures.
We dressed as evacuees and journeyed on the Severn Valley Railway to Bridgenorth. There were several workshops in which we were better able to understand home life during the war, the role of Anderson shelters and the types of games children of this period played.
Our homework was to create a WW2 artefact and we learnt the Lindy Hop in dance.
Our enterprise day will be a WW2 coffee morning where there be will an opportunity for families and carers to enjoy refreshments and entertainment. We are hoping to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.
Science has covered the fascinating subject of Micro organisms. We have cultivated our own mould under a variety of conditions and examined them under a microscope.
We have studied Judaism in RE and are looking forward to making our door stops.
Every child had an opportunity to apply for the positions of Head Boy/Girl and Curriculum Monitor. Once again the standard of presentations was outstanding. Congratulations to everyone who took part and the successful candidates (children will not be named on the website in accordance with our internet safety policy).
