Yet another busy term for Jaguar class. We started off the term with a music workshop where we learnt some traditional folk songs, some of us joined with other schools in Wiltshire to record a programme for BBC Wiltshire, it was very exciting!
As always, we have really enjoyed our P.E. lessons with Miss Sparks, this term we were focusing on athletics. We have also been enjoying running our Golden Mile each week. Have a look at our photos in the gallery below.
As well as participating in athletics activities, we were visited by a Streetdance group, who taught us lots of ‘groovy’ moves like robotics and X Factor-type dance steps. One of the dancers had actually danced on the X Factor with some famous groups, we were very impressed.
In science, Mrs. Coate set us a challenge (again!). She gave us some dirty water from a puddle and we had to obtain some clean water from it. After that, she asked us to try and get back any solids which had dissolved in the water. We discovered that we had to use the processes of filtering and evaporation to solve the problem.
On Wednesday 18th May we were visited by the Fire Service who taught us all about fire safety. (In case you’re wondering what Charlotte’s doing in the photo in the gallery below, she’s demonstrating how to put a fire out!)
We’ve really enjoyed our topic about Macbeth and Shakespeare. With Mrs. Fearn, we’ve learnt about William Shakespeare’s life as well as finding out about The Globe Theatre. Included in the gallery below is some of the writing we did based on Macbeth’s soliloquy ‘Is this a dagger which I see before me?’
We can’t talk about Term 5 without mentioning SATs. Mrs. Coate was really proud of Year 6 whose behaviour and attitude throughout the whole week was excellent. We’ve worked really hard all year and hope we all get the results we deserve.
The term ended with the Year 6 residential to PGL. A fantastic time was had by all with everyone enjoying the activities and challenges they faced. Mrs. Coate thought that Year 6 were brilliant all week (well most of the time !), and the feedback from our instructors was always really positive.
In our gallery below there is a selection of photographs from our week away.
Now we’re looking forward to our topic about South America in Term 6, as well as practising hard for our end of year performance.
