Our PPA is on a Wednesday afternoon and this will be covered by Mrs Green and Mrs Hunter.
Wow! It is the second half of the Spring term already! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and are ready for another exciting and important half term.
We are continuing with our Superheroes topic this half-term. The term will begin with a Science Week where we are going to be carrying out lots of amazing experiments to get you all enthused about the wonders of Science and how fascinating it really is!
I am so impressed at how hard you are all working and I am confident you are all going to continue to make me proud for the rest of the year!
This is an extremely important term for us as we prepare for the end of Key Stage assessments.
Our topic this half term continues to be 'Superheroes'. We had an exciting start to this topic when the children came to school to find they had to use their 'superhero' skills to navigate themselves through the laser maze which had appeared in our classroom. They all achieved their first superhero mission which prepared them for the rest of the term.
During this topic, we will be comparing real-life heroes with superheroes. We will research the characteristics of well-known superheroes and use this to design our own superhero. We will manipulate plastercine to create a model of our superhero which meets a specific design criteria and then use this to create a superhero movie - lots of fun to be had!
We found out that 2D shapes didn't work well as they only made spheres.
Next we made cubes which created some awesome shapes.
As part of our mini topic, Macbeth, we have used drama to show the relationship between Banquo and Macbeth. We enacted the battle scene at the start of the play. We we have also been predicting whether we think the witches' prophecy will come true and Macbeth will be become King by him acting on the seed of ambition which has been planted into his mind.
