Silence in the Courtroom!
Team 5 Trip - Galleries of Justice (Nottingham)
w/b 13th November
Follow our learning journey...
(w/b 30th October)
After a well deserved half term break, Team 5 quickly got back to work! This year, Team 5 will be taking part in a nation wide collaborative science project that is being run by the BBC. We will carry out these investigations alongside our science topics over the next few months. Eventually, we will be able to compare our data and findings with schools from around the country. If we are really lucky, we could be in with a chance of winning a visit from a famous scientist!
Topic Week: Off With Their Head!
(w/b 9th October)
The King of Butterflies
To link with our science this half term (life cycles and living things), Team 5 took some time to learn more about Monarch butterflies. They then created some amazing butterfly art using a mixture of mediums. The results are really fantastic and we hope to have these on display around school soon!
Investigating Area and Perimeter
Team 5 explored the relationship between area and perimeter by designing stables for King Henry VIII's many horses. They created a range of rectilinear shapes to find and recommend a suitable design for the King.
Team 5 applied some of the skills they have acquired making story maps during Talk for Writing sessions, to create historical recount maps using pictures and symbols to help them remember the events that led up to the execution of Anne Boleyn.
Hampton Court Palace Garden Designers
At the request of King Henry VIII, Team 5 had the task of finding out the perimeter of stone wall needed to surround some new knot gardens for the palace. We needed to provide the King with a range of shape and size options. Team 5 were definitely on top form, they even came up with formulas to calculate perimeter!
To find out about the many monarchs that have ruled our country since 1066, we spent some time exploring the dates and ordering them using our knowledge of place value.
Together We Try...and recreate some royal portraits!
Team 5 worked incredibly hard to reproduce royal portraits of Anne Boleyn, who we had been learning about this week. First we looked at the originals and thought about the detail that we would need to include, then we chopped the portraits up so that each member of our team would be responsible for a part of the picture. We were really happy with the results! What do you think?
