Spring 2 - Save the Amazon Protest!
As an end to our rainforest topic, we held our very own protest! We researched exactly what a (controlled!) protest looks like, created our own eye-catching posters to take along with us and went around sharing our views with the whole school! We shouted chants in unison and walked together as a group to make everyone aware of how strongly we felt about this topic. It's safe to say we were definitely heard around school and possibly in Pudsey town centre!
Spring 2 - Art Day
We enjoyed a fabulous art day linked to our Rainforest topic! We started the day by chopping up a colourful picture of the rainforest into four sections. We then drew a different section each, taking note of the colour and detail using pencils and colouring pencils. We then put them back together to see if we had re-created the original picture! After this, we practised our collage materials using a variety of patterned paper to collage rainforest animals. In the afternoon, we worked in groups to collage each layer of the rainforest. We were very proud of our final pieces!
Spring 2 - World Book Day
We had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day in our class. Everyone came dressed up as a book character and brought along a book with them too. The theme of the day was to 'share a story' we especially enjoyed sharing the books we had brought in with our friends. We also enjoyed creating our own stories based on the characters we had dressed up as. At the end of the day, we went to visit the Reception classes and shared our stories with them!
Spring 2 - Samba Drumming Workshop
We had such an exciting morning learning to play the drums in a Samba style! We had the opportunity to play three different instruments and learned to play them in time to different beats. It sounded amazing when the whole class played together! We couldn't believe how much we progressed during the lesson. At the beginning of the morning, some of us found it tricky to even hold the instruments correctly. By the end of the session we sounded just like a real Samba band at the carnival in South America!
Spring 1 - Chinese New Year ICE Day
What an exciting day we had celebrating Chinese New Year! We started the day by making vegetable noodles. We chopped a variety of vegetables, some of which we hadn't heard of or seen before! We then mixed them together and fried to create a tasty dish. We then enjoyed learning some greetings in Mandarin and singing songs that helped us to learn these. We also made our own red envelopes with kind messages to give to our family members.
Spring 1 - Headingley Water Treatment Works Trip
As part of our science topic, we went on a trip to Headingley to find out about how they treat water. We enjoyed walking through the treatment centre and seeing the different stages of treating and cleaning water. We felt very important as we had to wear high visability jackets, hard hats, goggles and protective gloves. We learned how important it is to save water, and couldn't believe the amounts of water we use in Leeds everyday!
Autumn 2 - The Romans DT Day
As part of our Romans topic, we had an exciting DT day! Throughout the day, we researched about, designed, made and evaluated our very own miniature Roman shields. We had lots of fun making these and couldn't wait to try them out!
