We can’t quite believe how quickly Term 4 has flown by, Jaguars have been incredibly busy, as you will see from all the fabulous photos in the gallery below. It’s amazing how many fun-filled activities we have managed to fit into 5 weeks, however, you’ll be pleased to know we have had time to do lots of work as well!
We started off the term with our new topic, Macbeth. After learning a little about the play, we wrote some atmospheric descriptions of the ‘Wild and Windy Heath Somewhere in Scotland’ where Macbeth and Banquo met the three witches. Read some of our descriptions below in the gallery.
Over the half term holiday, Mrs. Coate asked us to do a piece of homework based on Shakespeare and his plays. We produced a wide variety of work ranging from posters to models to pieces of writing.
As a finale to our topic about WW2, we enjoyed some ‘cooking on rations’, we made chocolate oat cookies and carrot cookies, Afterwards, we evaluated the appearance, taste and texture of our cookies and were very impressed with our finished products. Some of us enjoyed the cookies so much, we took the recipe home to make some more!
Charlotte, Cody and Louise represented Y6 at the WHF Science Festival on 18th March, Mrs. Woodcock said that they did a brilliant job with their presentation and did Haydon Wick proud! The theme of the festival was ‘Eco’, so before they went, we spent an exciting afternoon trying to create enough electricity to light an LED light using lemons, limes, potatoes, apples and oranges.
We celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book character. Look at the gallery below, can you tell which characters some of us chose?
Jaguar class always enjoys a challenge and we particularly enjoyed our maths investigation about Vedic numbers. We learnt about what Vedic numbers are, where they came from and created ‘vedic worms’ using squared and isometric paper, we found that activity a particular challenge!
Every year, many of us at Haydon Wick participate in the Swindon Music Festival, this year was no exception. 33 Year 4, 5 and 6s travelled to the Oasis Centre on Thursday 17th March to sing their hearts out, there were quite a few Jaguars amongst them! Mrs. Coate came with us (along with Mrs. Winn and Mrs. Adams, Mrs. Whistler was already there as she led all the Swindon schools in our singing at the festival this year!) and said that we behaved impeccably and sang beautifully.
Sport Relief Day on Friday 18th March saw us walking/running/scootering around the track for our ‘Sport Relief Mile’. We were rewarded with a delicious banana or berry smoothie afterwards. The gallery below includes some photos of our display about persuading parents to evacuate their children during World War Two.
On the last Wednesday of term, Miss Sparkes organised a fantastic Sports Events Day which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We finished the term off with one of our favourite visitors, Storybox Theatre, this year we were enthralled by a performance of ‘The Snow Queen’.
