5GH have been learning all about living things and their habitats. We have learned about what characteristics all living things have and then investigated the effects of microorganisms in compost and yeast.
We looked carefully at germs and created posters on how to stop the spread of germs.
Take a look at some of our learning about living things and their habitats.
In Art, we have been making our own clay dragon eyes. We started off by designing them using different shading techniques to add depth and texture and then practised our use of clay. Once we were happy with our clay, we painted them to make them really stand out and finally glossed them. We hope you like them!
We had a great time taking part in the fantastic Christmas concert with ‘Bristol Plays Music’. It was great fun to be part of the concert with schools all over Bristol and we loved learning the songs as well as the sign language that accompanied them. Here we are during the concert – you might even see our picture in The Guardian newspaper!
This term we have really enjoyed learning about Forces and carrying out lots of experiments throughout the term. We particularly enjoyed testing the effects of air resistance on different sized parachutes. Here we are building our parachutes and testing their drop times.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed exploring Beowulf and Odd and The Frost Giants in Literacy this half term. They have produced some exceptional Newspaper reports about Beowulf’s epic battle with Grendle and have really enjoyed exploring the depths of these characters in class discussions. They have made super progress since the start of September and Mr Hunter and Ms Schofield are very impressed with their efforts.
The children have been incredibly impressed with their new P.E. teachers this half term. Each Thursday, they have enjoyed their P.E. afternoons with the teachers from Future Stars. Rotating around three different sessions, including Real P.E., Real Gym and Basketball, all the children have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.
