Class 5BL

Following our visit to St James the Great, class 5BL recreated the Easter Journey with a twist... Have a look at the wreaths they created! Each section of their artwork represents a powerful event in Christian beliefs.

It is with great maturity that 5BL have tackled the concluding part of our IPC unit 'The Human Body'... Using some materials from NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) and considering the powerful slogan 'Drugs + Your Body - It isn't pretty', they researched, studied, debated and challenged all the information they came across about the devastating effects of substance abuse. The posters they created are a testament to their ability to examine shocking facts with dignity and empathy...

Have you ever wondered why a 'cube number' is called 'cube'? Well, with Mrs Burn, Class 5BL made sure to find out by undertaking a maths investigation...

Putting the science behind sounds into practice, Class 5BL made their own string instruments and investigated frequency, pitch, tone, waves, tension and much more...

Mission to Mars 3: ... Our final observations, measurements and recordings... Quite a bit of food for thoughts nonetheless the children came up with some amazing conclusions!

Mission to Mars 2: ... On January 25th 2016, we worked with plants to observe, record and explain. We wanted to gain a better understanding of the structure of plants. We also challenged ourselves with the question: how can we develop strong vegetation that could thrive on Mars' hostile terrain?

Mission to Mars: ... Could we grow plants on Mars if we had to find another host planet for the human race and other living things? What would we need?... This is what we tried to find out with our soil science experiment on January 18th 2016.

Tragedy! Not of the Bee Gees kind but some fun mask making to emulate the Ancient Greeks theatre artistry and creativity.

 

 

 

 

What we have been up to... 

week ending Friday 25th September 2015

 

We have just started our third week in school which will lead to our first Celebration Assembly on Friday and have already covered an amazing amount of learning across our different subjects.

 

In I.P.C., we have concentrated our research on Athens and Sparta in order to understand how City-States functioned in Ancient Greece and have made strong links between the past and the present. We were astonished to find out that there existed a city called Argos and that the concept of democracy was already in place such a long time ago!! We have located important geographical features on maps and came across such words as peninsula or mountain ranges.

 

In English, we are carrying on with our discovery of the Purple Lady, following Abu in his quest to find his beloved sister Leyla. In order to enhance our writing, we have worked on personification as a support to setting descriptions: our trees were shivering and our rooks were menacingly spying!

 

 

Maths has seen us dealing with very large numbers (up to a million). On our laptops, we have compared the transfer prices of international footballing stars or have planned the ‘virtual’ purchase of mansions in the heart of Westminster. We have looked at comparing, ordering and applying these large numbers to real life situations.

 

Finally, in French, we have become acquainted with different cities across France and have met young people who asked us: Où habites-tu? To which we are happily responding: J’habite à Solihull!

Professor Mc Ginty and his fabulous time travelling machine...

 

Did you know that Ancient Greeks wrote on beeswax with a special stylus?

They also drank lumpy wine and played with miniature cows on wheels and spinners!

In Athens, young girls did not go to school! Instead, they stayed at home to learn to sew and do chores :-(

Only men could take part in the Olympic Games and did so NAKED with only a piece of string on their head to keep the sweat off their face... YUK!

 

We have learned all this and more about the famously Gruesome (yet) Groovy Greeks during our first I.P.C. entry point and our History topic The Great, the Bold and the Brave.
