Our topic was ‘What a Wonderful World’. We thought about what made a wonder and studied some of the wonders of the Ancient, and Modern World. We found out that there were actually 3 lists of Wonders, so we re-named them the Ancient Wonders, The New Wonders and the New New Wonders. Each group was named after one of the Wonders.
We went on a ‘round the world tour’ to visit some of the Wonders. We found out facts about the countries they were in and got to sample some of the foods.
To finish the project, we made our own list of The Seven Wonders of Wales. We devised a scoring system to rank the places we thought might qualify. When we had made our lists we presented our Wonders to Year 5.
Autumn Term Second Half
This half term we are studying Potions. We have been finding out about different materials and the effects things have on them. We have turned our class into a laboratory called Lab 14 and we all have Dr or professor names. We know how important it is to be safe when we carry out experiments so no one is allowed into the laboratory without the correct equipment.
Wednesday – PE day. In the Spring term we will be swimming.
Homework is set each week, which will be spelling and a maths task. Maths tasks are usually on line but occasionally paper work will be set. There will also be research based topic homework. Home work will be given on a Friday and should be returned on Wednesday.
