Class 6: Miss Lock

The entire school has been working hard to create unique pieces of work for the Art Exhibition.  Here in Class 6 we were given the legendary Beatles song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' to bring to life.  We first listened to the song last Friday where we were unsure exactly what was going on in the song.  No one makes music like this anymore (think Miss Lock and Mr Hanson). After our initial giggles, we really got into the lyrics and melody joining in on the chorus - it really is catchy! This week we have looked at the objects in the lyrics and the art work that has already been created because of the song.  We used these as inspiration for our own designs.  Miss Lock really threw down a challenge as she said we needed to try and use more than one medium! Mr Hanson has been refreshing our memories on how to use shading and blending to create depth.  We have experimented with paint, oil pastels, photography and even sculpture! Have a look at our attempts. Can you guess which lyrics inspired us?

This week in topic we've had our work cut out! We have been learning about rainforests: where they are found, what they layers are called, what they are like and what lives there.  We are now in the middle of creating a presentation to show off all of our knowledge and Miss Lock has let us choose how we present it! As well as rainforests we've learnt about particles and how they behave in solids, liquids and gases.  The BBC video we watched was hilarious as well as informative.  Miss Lock allowed us to act like the 3 states of matter too at home time.  Ask us what the differences are and we can show you!

Why we should help save the Bumblebee!

Every Thursday we have a music lesson with the wonderful Mrs Caudwell.  We have learnt all about rhythm and timbre, tempo and pitch. We are working towards a music festival later on in the summer term. Here's a sneak preview...

Nature Week!

 

We are learning all about living things and how we can classify and sort them into different groups. We have been using Carroll and Venn diagrams bringing maths into our topic sessions! It has been really interesting learning about MRS GRENADE and what all living things have in common.  We have classified some animals that we weren't sure of too such as a seal being a mammal, a sea horse does lay eggs as does a turtle. 

Sorting animals!

Our Gangsta Granny Stories!

For the past few weeks we have been basing all our learning in literacy and topic around David Walliams' Gangsta Granny.  We have read the entire book and loved it! A granny and her grandson swimming the Thames to pull off the most elaborate heist the country has ever seen.  We loved reading about their adventures and we learnt a lot about families.  In literacy, we have written from the point of view as Ben in his diary and also written a brand new chapter based around the Crown Jewels. 

 

In Science we were challenged to build an alarm system to protect the Crown Jewels from the thieves.  We thought about how alarms work, how different alarms need different things - think lighthouse, jewellery store, house alarm, what about if you suffered from a hearing impairment?

 

We all designed and built a working circuit today that had a switch that, if triggered, would set off a buzzer.  Some of us even managed to add a second circuit that would trigger a light!  It has been hard work today but we have kept going, changing things if we have needed to. 

 

Miss Lock is incredibly proud of us and the work we have done!  We think we're pretty good too!

The Mystery Creature

We looked at 5 different habitats: oceans, polar regions, deserts, caves and jungles.  We also found out about lots of wonderful animals that have adapted to survive there.

Did you know that polar bears have the thickest fur of any bear on the planet?  Did you know that they also have black skin to absorb any heat? Pretty clever creatures!

 

Have a look at some of our designs for the mystery creature buried in the soil.  We have designed creatures that are suited to one environment and that have special adaptations to help them survive!

Can you recognise any animal parts that have inspired us?

David Attenborough needs our help!

This morning, we received a letter from Sir David Attenborough asking for our help with a fossil of a mysterious, unknown creature.  It could have come from any time, it could have come from any habitat.  He wants to know what we think it could be, what it could look like and where it could have lived. 

Thomas' favourite creature he found out about was the angler fish "because it has a light on the front of its head so it can see it the deep sea."

Kai's favourite was a polar creature called the penguin!  "It has camouflage for when it is under water called countershading."

Rose likes the jaguar "because she likes the pattern on its head, which camouflages it."

Chloe likes the polar bears as "they have the thickest fur of any other bear on Earth!"

 

Our job this week is to create and design animals for different environments because David Attenborough says children have the greatest imaginations! We are all looking forward to it!  Bet you can't wait to see what we come up with!

 

Stay tuned...

Thank you to all the mums and dads who came into our class today.  We all loved showing off our topic work - even if Miss Lock was sneaky and got us to do more maths today! Next up is to sketch and design our new features for Darton!  Keep your eyes peeled for our ideas on here.

 

In literacy we have been learning all about persuasive writing.  We have heard that Mr Cameron, our current Prime Minister, thinks that children are too unhealthy and that computers are to blame! We have come up with reasons why children need to use technology and that computers are not the only thing to blame for children not exercising.  Here are some examples of our writing this week.  We think these are outstanding!

Hello and welcome to Class 6!  

We are a mixed class, 9 of us are Year 3 and 20 of us are Year 4.  Miss Lock and Mr Hanson are in class with us everyday with Mrs Bradshaw covering on Tuesday afternoons.  We have Mr Hayes for outdoor PE on Monday afternoon then Miss Lock for indoor PE on Wednesday afternoon (she's better at dance and gymnastics than Mr Hayes surprise).  

 

Our first topic to kick start the year is called 'Town Planners.'  Our first day of school was a full topic day where we looked at Barnsley and Darton, learnt about the history of our town and how to read and write grid references.  We are really looking forward to getting our teeth stuck into designing and creating new features for our beautiful village.  

 

We have brand new Reading Records this year that look spectacular!  Reading is extremely important so we need to be reading as much as possible at home.  20 minutes each night would be fantastic!  There's also lots of helpful phonics and spelling tips in the new records that will help!

 

Looking forward to seeing all our fantastic work this year!
