Term 1

Dance Around the World

We had a fabulous session with Matthew covering so many different dances from around the world to produce a final piece of dance that was great to watch. Mrs Upsall will (hopefully) upload the film to this page tomorrow!

Oh no! The video of the whole dance routine is too large to upload. wink I have added small snippets from the practise sessions instead.

Harvest Festival

Thank you to everyone who came to support us in our Harvest Festival this year. It was so lovely to see so many parents in to enjoy our fantastic singing. I am afraid there are no photos to enjoy though as they came out very blurred...

Sam Ruddock

We were really lucky to have Paralympian Sam Ruddock  to work with us on Thursday morning- it was great fun!

Science Museum Invention Competition

Well done to the children who had talked about the competition and their ideas for inventions as this helped enormously in class with our final creations on Monday afternoon. All the inventions and descriptions have now been finished and are on their way to London. Fingers crossed!

Roman Numerals

We practised our knowledge and skills of Roman Numerals by making numbers out of lolly sticks. Fun whilst we learn!

Model Making

We created our first plasticene models today using Newplast plasticene (just like the original Aardman characters were made from). Mrs Upsall was so busy taking us through how to make Shaun the Sheep that she forgot to take photos! She hopes that you liked the ones some of us brought home tonight.

The photos below are of archery club who made Gromit the dog because it was far too windy for archery!

Animation Backdrop

After forming our plans last week, we created our animation scenery today ready for when we create our animation pieces. We will be making our animation characters from plasticene next week along with any extra props. Exciting!

We have had a great start to our football sessions with Jack, focusing on control and dribbling of the ball before moving onto passing in week 2.

Science Investigation

Our task was to find out which surface creates the most friction. We worked in groups using force meters and recorded our results before making the conclusion that rougher, bumpier surfaces created the most friction.

Early Animation

We had a great afternoon looking at the very interesting history of animation (a link to our homework!). We had the chance to make a piece of early animation ourselves in the form of a thaumatrope- we loved playing with them!
