Class 5 have been practising their circus skills this afternoon. We have been juggling, plate spinning, being clowns, diabolo, hula hooping and spinning poi. They have had great fun completing their tasks.
Welcome back to the Summer Term and our new theme “Roll up! Roll up!” This term we will be learning about the Circus and forces. We will discover what it is like to be in the circus and learn some circus skills. We will be investigating different types of forces such as friction, air resistence and gravity.
Here is our knowledge organiser for this term.

What a strange start to our new theme! We managed one day and then went into lockdown again. However, class 5 have risen to the challenge and have been engaging wonderfully with our remote learning. Already they have been finding out about Ancient Greece and creating timelines and work in their books. Look out for some of Class 5’s creative work coming up on the blog!
Our second visit to Copsegrove Farm focussed on the trees in the woods. We spent time learning how to identify different trees from their leaves. We aged trees by measuring the girth of the tree using our hands and tape measures. We made leaf and berry prints on material using a pressing technique with stones. We learnt how to filter water using a tripod and various filtering materials such as sand and charcoal. We also did the walk of trust where we had to guide each other round the woods in pairs with one of us blindfolded. As always we had great fun and learnt lots of new things including how to make popcorn over an open fire!
