Paper Shapes

We have been learning to look carefully at the pictures in books and to read and follow instructions.

Can you think of when you might use these techniques to make plants and animals?


We have been constructing and describing 2D and 3D shapes in Geometry.

We have used play dough and toothpicks. We had to make sure that the play dough balls weren't too heavy for the toothpicks. We got quite skillful at this!

Can you name our constructions?

Why do you think we didn't make a cylinder or a cone?

X-ray Wordle

We read a really interesting book about x-rays.
We made a Wordle of all the different parts of our bodies that you could take an x-ray of.
We were really surprised to see how many we could think of!
Docors and dentists use x-rays to help them find out what needs fixing in our bodies.
Can you think of any more?

Words we use when we ask questions.

We are developing our questioning skills in our inquiry learning. Many of the words we use to begin a question begin with "wh". Here is a song to help us remember them!

Paper Folding by Pod 3

We read the instructions for folding houses and trees out of paper. We had to think carefully about the instructions and fold carefully. It was fun putting them together on the floor. This is called Origami.

What's coming up in Term 3?

Create your own Animation

Clocks that are Fun to look at!

The year 5 and 6 children at our school are learning about and designing and creating their own clocks! Here are some very unusual ones. We can't wait to see what they create!

Novelty Rolling Ball Clock

I don't know how many of you have been onto Room 18's Blog, but this clock reminded me of the marble run that they are constructing in their class. What a fun but distracting way to tell the time!

The last of our Blend Photostories!

We have been practising making Photo Stories, adding special effects to our photos and speaking clearly when we record our voices. It has been lots of fun and is improving our reading!

Some more Blends Photos. Look at our Fabulous Picture Stack! Which blends do these begin with?

We have been out taking some more photos! This time we found something blue, a brush, a clock, playdough, friends, a glue stick, twink and someone gripping a bar.

Can you read our Silly Blend Story?

We made a list of words with blends in them, illustrated them, took photos and then made up some silly stories using the blend words!

Can you spot the blends?

Did you guess what was hiding?

Sometimes our imaginations can play tricks on us can't they!

Year 5 and 6 Photo Stories

We made these Photo Stories about colour after we had read a book about different colours.
Can you think of some other things that we could have taken photos of around our school?
