Welcome to Hawks 2021 Class page
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
