We’ve been looking at the human body and the circulatory and respiration systems especially.

Have a look at our playdough models of the lungs. Do you know what each of these parts does?

We decided to measure our lung capacity. Have a look at the experiment we carried out to measure it. Can you work out what we did?

On Wednesday we had Forest School. We started to make Christmas decorations. Can you spot what they are? I’ll give you a clue. They have antlers and pull sleighs. We used pine cones and branches to make them. After that, we began to make Christmas wreathes.

We have been looking at Esafety for the last two weeks.  We have been creating rules to keep us safe online and looking at what makes a good or a bad password. Have a look at some of our posters on passwords. Which things are you doing? Which aren’t you doing? Is your password password?

We have been reading the book a Seed is sleepy which has provoked a lot of thought! We have linked it to the parable of the mustard seed and the parable of the sower. We have discussed how we would like to grow as a class. Can you see our class charter?

In English we have written poems about seeds that use personification, similes and metaphors. We have done observational art drawings using different shading techniques. We used these drawing to decorate our poems. Have a read of them!

Class 5 had an exciting visit from Mrs Kelly today when we took part in a STEM workshop linked to the Fairford Air Tattoo.

We made wind powered cars. We were given a design brief and had  to design our cars accordingly:

  • they had to carry one passenger (an egg)
  • they had to travel 5 m as quickly as possible using wind
  • they had to be at least 100 mm long, 50 mm wide and 120mm high

There was a catch though. We were each ‘given’ £100 to spend. If we spent all our budget that was that!  Wheels ‘cost’ £4 each. Tech card (to make the base) ‘cost’ £40!

We had a great time and learnt lots about designing like the fact your first design doesn’t have to be perfect!

Finally we raced our cars. Scarlett’s and Jess’ car won!

Have a look at our lesson and our cars.

This week (6th March) is the second week of this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight.  We’ve been learning all about Fair trade and what it means to farmers and producers in certain countries.  Have a look at our posters:



Then on Tuesday we made Fair Trade pancakes in Forest school using Fair Trade chocolate and sugar. We talked about how the extra cost for these products meant that the people who produced these were paid fairly for their work. We really enjoyed making and especially eating them. Fair Trade also gave us food for thought!

In Maths we have been looking at fractions. I bet you didn’t know that you could learn about fractions using lego. We did! We used a standard size block and then found blocks which were different fractions of that amount.


We’ve also used cubes to create improper fractions and mixed numbers. Can you guess what the mixed number is in this picture? Can you convert it into an improper fraction?

Class 5 Shackleton’s Journey Homework Brochure

We’ve been looking at Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his bridge across the Avon gorge. We discussed what makes a good bridge and which shapes are strongest. Here are some of our designs.




In Class Worship we looked at the story of the Unforgiving servant. We looked at what the story meant. We decided that the servant who had been forgiven greatly should have been more forgiving to the person who owed him a little bit. We thought about forgiveness and reflecting Jesus’ light. We  wrote down ideas about forgiveness on our stars.  Can you see them in our reflection area?


We’ve been looking at square and cube numbers. What square numbers do we have here?

We had Forest School today (28th Sept). We were lighting fires using strike a lights and we made chocolate bananas. Yummy! We really enjoyed it especially when we managed to light a fire without matches!
