Fun and Fossils

This week we started our Lost World project… We have learnt about fossils and made our own Fossil Era layer cake!

Fossil Layers

 

We’ve learnt some difficult technical words this week and we’ve tried to remember how to spell them too!

 

Thanks to the lovely Mrs Clarke searching for us, we read Gigantosaurus by Jonny Duddle (He wrote one of our favourites The Pirates Next Door)

 

Gigantosaurs-cover

an excellent read……

This afternoon we have painted the skin of a dinosaur after discussing the importance of skin colour in nature. We also started cricket in games.

 

Looking forward to next week :-)

 

Have a good weekend!

The Lost World!

The_Lost_World_Jurassic_Park

 

That’s right! Our Topic this term is all things Dino -related!

We found out by breaking into our own ‘egg’ – it was tough work and required some force!

We will be looking at fossils, dinosaur behaviour and also the chronology of the era!

 

Exciting!

The Top of the Mountain is in sight!

The Summer term is fast approaching and in Year 5/6 we have soooo much to look forward to!

K2  8.611m

A new topic shrouded in much mystery that starts at 9am Monday morning. Teachers and LSAs have been busy planning and we CANNOT wait to share it with you :-) Eyes peeled!

The SATs are coming – now it might sound strange to be excited about these tests but here in Eagles we can’t wait to show off how clever we are! Plus the sooner they’re here, the sooner they’re over!

Rugby Tournaments – our teams are primed and ready to rock :-)

(and my favourite….) Production! The script is edited, backing tracks have been purchased and costumes are underway! Not long til we do our ‘Big Reveal’ having seen this year group’s class worships and Christmas performance it is sure to be a phenomenal show!

Cathedral trips, transition days, language days and much much more….. We’ve been talking about sliding down that mountain and we’re nearly there!

Looking forward to seeing you all back on Monday……

World Book Day

Today (Thursday) we took part in World Book Day. We all enjoyed coming to school in our pyjamas. IT made for very comfy learning! We started the day in the hall with Mr Tromans and learnt some interesting facts about famous peoples’ favourite books.

 

Our author was Jackie Morris and we looked at some of her books in the week running up to today. We noticed a trend towards animals and emotion within her picture books. After looking at her web page today, we realise she loves nature and icing in the countryside. She also loves Cats which pleased Mrs Alvis and Alex!

 

I am cat

 

On Thursday we completed some artwork themed around Jackie Morris’s books and here are our outcomes. We used variety of media including – sketching, watercolours and oil pastels. We found it particularly hard to paint rather than sketch our images and enjoyed the challenge.

 

Some of our art work:

We really liked our author and will add her to our list of favourites including: Lauren St Child, James Patterson, Chris Riddell and Antony Horowitz. During this term our class novel has been ‘ The Apothecary’ by Maile Meloy. We can’t recommend this book highly enough!

Amazin’ Rainforest

During this term we have been exploring the Amazon Rainforest. We are currently in the process of creating a Rainforest within the school library. Eagles are in charge of leaves and foliage. Tomorrow we will begin creating our designs using a range of materials. Photos to follow….

 

In the last week we have been looking at the book ‘Short’ by Kevin Crossley-Holland’ we are going to be planning and writing our own mystery stories and are hoping to post some on here.

 

This is while we gear up for Christmas and our Christmas Carol Concert – The Christmas Truce!

Exciting Post (!)

The Eagles recieved a rather exciting parcel through the post yesterday…..

A short while ago we wrote to the author Jill Murphy (of The Worst Witch fame) today we received a letter, a series of books, pictures and autographs back from her!

 

So exciting:

We are thoroughly inspired and are going to be contacting Rob Lloyd – the author of our (old) class novel – Wildboy.

We hope to hear from him too!

The ‘What Is That Food In The Pot?’ test…

Along time ago (five minutes  and thirty-three seconds to be precise) we did a terrifying challenge, which involved placing your hand in a pot whilst being blindfolded, using only your sense of touch and smell to define what food was in the pot…

The dreadful truth, it was…

 

 

 

                Pickled Onions!

 

 

KW, ES and The Computer

P.S. Eleanor cheated and looked in the pot. Shocking behaviour, Eleanor!

Vegetable Soup

We made vegetable soup! We chopped lots of vegtables like potatos,carrots,and lots more .

We put it into vegetable stock and then stired and left to bake. It tasted lovely! I would recomend it to children and adults. It is very easy to make. When the soup was finished we all tasted it. If we had a countainer we could take some home! We also were going to leave some for teachers to try some but it was too good and we ate it all.

Scrummy hot chocolate fudge cake!

My favourite food is hot chocolate fudge cake.

Sitting on the colossal slice of delicious chocolate cake lie hundreds of rich flakes of dark chocolate. Filled with goey, warm, mouth-watering chocolate, this cake tastes delicious whatever you feel. Like the best food ever-but one million times better- this exquisit chocolate cake is lathered in creamy, dark choclate sauce, which drips over the rich cake.

Beneath the perfect chocolate sauce, lurks giant fudge peices that melt in your mouth. Excitedly, I place the cake in my mouth and the rich, chocolatey sensation is remarkable! Although this cake makes me want to eat it forever, I know I can’t because it’s too nice to be true.
