Wednesday 16th March – RAF Cosford
Yesterday, we had an amazing day at RAF Cosford. The children took part in a Battle of Britain workshop, looked at some real WW2 planes and created rocket powered cars. The children were well-behaved and enthusiastic as always.
Monday 28th February – Science
Today, in science, we learned all about water resistance and how a streamlined shape will have less water resistance. We then used our knowledge to have create our own paper boats and have a race. The children enjoyed the activity. We all decided the main improvement would be to not use paper in the future. We could shape the paper easily but unfortunately it became soggy quickly.
As nearly all children have returned to school, home learning (due to COVID isolation) will be provided by email.

Whilst the children are completing a gymnastics lesson, you could try one of these activities.
Class 5’s English
This week, we have been exploring the narrative poem ‘The Highwayman’. The children have identified the different imagery in the poem, performed some freeze frames and did some hot seating. During the hot seating task yesterday, three children were interviewers and other children took on the role of Bess, the Highwayman and Tim.
Class 5’s Textile Project
Throughout the day, the children have been busy following their design to create their finished products. I am so proud of the children and their patience and perseverance. I hope you enjoyed seeing their finished products too!
We have used an online software program to create our transfer print. They have turned out amazingly well!
This morning, the children have been developing their sewing skills further. They have all sewn on a button, practiced applique and another stitch (running, cross, stem or embroidery). Their perseverance and determination was fantastic. I was blown away by their attitude as well as what they produced.
This afternoon, we evaluated existing textile products which were Christmas themed such as stockings and sacks. The children spent time discussing the materials the product was made from, its user, its purpose and the design decisions made. We also discussed how innovative the products were and how we could improve them.
Today, we practiced a running stitch as part of our preparation for our Christmas themed textile project.
Children in Need 2021
This year, for Children in Need, the children dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up. In the afternoon, we found out about the history of Children in Need and why it is important. Can you spot one of the children in the second photo?
Double Page Spread on Llandudno or Barmouth
Over the last week, the children have researched a coastal town – either Barmouth or Llandudno. They have then used their research and amazing writing skills to create the creative double page spreads below. I was amazed by the work the children created – you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves. I have included a few of the pieces of work below.
