Welcome to Class 5

Introducing the P-Buzz!

We had a visit from Mr. M who taught us how to play the P-Buzz. It was fantastic, noisy fun, out in the sunshine, and we are wondering if Mr. M's full name is really Mr. Magnificent...

Our Moving Toys

In DT we investigated how moving toys are created using cams; the shape of the cam determines how the toy will move. We then designed and created our own using shoe boxes - from twirling ballerinas to spinning helicopter blades and water-squirting elephants!. Brilliant!

Groovy Greek vases completed!

All finished! Painted in the black figure style. With just a few broken handles along the way, which only add to the authentic, freshly excavated feel. Well done everyone!

Groovy Greeks

After examining the styles and decoration of clay pots, we designed decorations for our own greek-style 'pen and wash' pot illustrations. Then we used the 'pinch' method to form 'kraters' out of clay - pots which were used for diluting wine with water. Once they have dried, we will paint and varnish them. We're trying to wait patiently...

Rocket launching

As part of our Science topic,  we built and tested our own rockets in order to understand the force of air resistance. We then launched them and timed how long they were in the air, hoping to overcome or utilize the force to aid their flight!
