Play-script drama: Having organised our Thomas Kempe scenes, we took on character roles and acted out the action.

Creating our film set: Using a box to set our room boundaries, we created the walls, floor and ceiling of our chosen room from East End Cottage. We furnished the rooms and constructed the characters. We’re setting up the scenes to capture our film sequences.


Assessing Progress: This week, we’ve tackled our Summer 2 progress checks. Impressive effort shown by everyone!

Turning narrative into play-script: We organised Ghost of Thomas Kempe story scenes using our rainbow, pyramid and hand planners, then we became story tellers! To bring the story to life, we then produced a cast list and drafted character lines and stage directions ready for our performances.

Science: If we heat one end of a nail, how hot will the other end get? It was a question that we didn’t know the answer to so we needed to investigate. We used a data-logger to graph the results.

Calculating angles in a complete turn.

Calculating angles on a straight line: We are working in peer-mentor groups to talk through our calculation strategies. Our magic number is 180!


A Night at the Movies: We have begun to get to grips with the songs for our production. We expect to rehearse with Year 6 next week.

Drawing angles: Our challenge was to draw two acute, two obtuse and two reflex angles and to arrange their sizes in ascending order.

Road Safety Week: We have had an exciting week, but also one that has aimed to put across important messages. Keeping everyone safe on our roads is uppermost in our minds.
We had a visit from the emergency services enabling us to talk to police officers and firemen about the equipment they use and the situations they deal with.

We’ve taken part in a road safety quiz that aimed to coach road crossing skills and make us aware of the different types of crossing that we might come across. We have investigated car stopping distances so that we can make wise choices about whether to cross the road or wait a little longer. Lastly, we built a mental image of how long a 200m walk actually is so that if our families need to park near school, we can make a wise decision about where to park, but still be on time.
