23.09.17 - Week 3 Update
Good week continuing our learning this week, lots of superb Mayan research happening as well as ongoing space exploration! We've also considered how to stay safe online and are building up our gymnastic move repertoire! More to come on all of this next week!
19.09.17 - Mask Making Day
Very (very! ) messy art day in Class 5 today as they produced their Mayan-inspired masks!
15.09.17 - Week 2 Update
Super second week in class 5 as things definitely getting into routine. Some superb space learning taking place, a real exploration of the Mayan civilisation, not to mention a superb trip to Winchester Science Centre!
14.09.17 - Winchester Science Centre Visit
Wow - what a super science day! We've explored the effects of space on the body, operated space machinery, taken a trip in and around space and found out a huge amount about all aspects of science! Year 5 have done the school (and the world of science!) proud!
'We all had so much fun learning stuff about space. I loved the planetarium, it was huge and the film was great. The activities were epic too.'
'On Thursday we went to the science museum. We loved controlling the robots and doing space tests. We explored and there was loads of activities and they were very fun too.'
'I loved the mind ball where you strapped a band to your forehead and focused on the ball. I discovered how flexible I am and tested my strength.'
We've had a fantastic first week in Class 5! All the class have settled in really well and thrown themselves into the year! It's been a busy first week, with our Mayan and Space topics getting under way, as well as meeting new faces, electing school councillors, electing team captains, applying for class and school responsibilities and entering into Harvest service rehearsals! Looking forward to week 2!
