Hawks Class


Welcome to Hawks 2021 Class page smiley


Here you will find updates about what your wonderful, hardworking children have been getting up to in our class. Please be sure to visit on a weekly basis!


Today in Science we looked at dissecting a plant, and identifying all the parts inside. We also learned about pollination and the aspects of a plant which may be classified as male or female.

Today in Science we experimented with separating two materials which have been put together. We looked at filtration, sieving, magnetism and evaporation.

In todays Science lesson, Hawks tested how hard, flexible, magnetic, permeable and transparent everyday materials were. Here is what we got up to!

Science Experiment - Please enjoy looking at our posters designed and created for 'The Big Science Event' we all made up our own question we wanted to investigate. In groups, the children then planned, organised and carried out their experiments. Finally, the children analysed their results to make conclusions and plan what could be different next time.

WOLRD BOOK DAY 2022 - Please look carefully at our costumes, can you guess which famous book characters we are?

This term in RE we are focusing on the importance of Sikh stories. In today's lesson we learnt the story of Duni Chand and the Needle of Heaven, which we then worked in groups to role-play to help us deepen our understanding. We had lots of fun getting into role as each of the characters and it made it much easier for us to learn the moral of the story.

This week in French we learned all about how to ask and answer people within a conversation about when our birthdays are. Here we are in full flow, asking everyone when their birthdays are!

Throughout the last two weeks, Hawks have enjoyed exploring and learning all about the features of a balanced argument. Every child has made phenomenal progress, see examples below, from our 'cold tasks' with no experience of writing a balanced argument to our hot tasks - which we wrote after learning all about the features of a successful balanced argument! '

Geography - Hawks have made an exciting start to our Geography learning. We have gained fantastic atlas and map reading skills to locate all 23 countries in North America. We then moved onto exploring lines of Latitude and Longitude, which we found really tricky to begin with, now we can confidently explain why they are used and use them to find and locate countries around the world. We played a really fun battle ships games!

This week, Hawks re-created the digestive system in Science! We looked at the mouth and how it breaks up food and then the journey the food takes until it becomes waste. Have a look at what we've created (it was messy!)

November - PE with Miss Hill - We really enjoyed playing 'Battleships' today and trying to get our opponents out. We then had lots of fun planning our own team games, which we are going to teach to our friends and enjoy playing next week!

Performance Poetry - This week we really enjoyed listening to poems, choosing our favourites and then performing them in groups. We worked hard on using expression, varying our tone and ensuring our performance would engage the intended audeince.

Steel Pans workshop. As part of Black history month, children leaned the art of playing the steel pans. Hawks were really talented and much too quick, even for Ms Hicks!

Please take a look at our slideshow of today's English lesson. We took part in lots of different drama activities including role play, freeze frames, hot seating and conscience alley. As you can see from the images, we worked hard on our facial expressions and body language to portray the character's from our class text 'Once' As you can see, we loved it and as a result our writing was inspired and fantastic!

As part of Black History month, we got the chance to take part in an African dance workshop which we really enjoyed.

Please have a look at our WWII Blitz inspired artwork which we have worked really hard on and thoroughly enjoyed!

This week in Science we have been testing the water resistance of different shaped vessels and how well they travel through water! Check out our experiments!

Testing air resistance. This week we have been testing the effects of air resistance on our running. We used parachutes to measure the difference in speed of our runs between running with and without a parachute.
