This afternoon we finished off the term by completing our non -chronological reports about our mechanimals. We published them by typing them up and finally printing them.
Here are a couple of them. Do come into class next term to read them – they are brilliant.
Have a lovely half term,
Today in Art, we started to draw our mechanimals – for our non-chronological report. We started by copying the mechanimal from our English books. Then, we shaded them in with sketching pencils and made the background look old. Finally, we wrote a caption to go with our drawings. Here are some of them:
All term we have been reading Cogheart by Peter Bunzl. Our topic work (we are designers) and English work (first person narratives and non-chronological reports) have all focused on his ingenious mechanical creations.
On Saturday, some of us were lucky enough to meet Peter Bunzl at Salisbury Literature Festival. We designed mechanimals (mechanical animals) and made them move! We even got our books signed!
Mrs Wren tweeted pictures of our cam mechanisms and mechanimal designs. Peter Bunzl tweeted back – which we were very excited by!
We can’t wait to finish the book before half term and complete our non-chronological reports.
Today in Willow Class we have started our non-chronological reports about our mechanimal. We’ve started our introductions, trying to include as many Year 6 features as possible.
Today in willow Class (in the afternoon) we did our judo assessment taught by our teacher Mark. He was very impressed due to everyone’s amazing skills. We had to do 5 newaza pieces-which means on the floor-plus 2 tachywasa moves. If you are wondering this is how you say the two types of judo,
One of our pieces we had to show was a transition between tachywasa and newaza.
Hope you enjoyed the blog- by Katelyn and Amelia.
Today, Willow Class recapped how to say numbers from 1-20. Mrs Wren was quite surprised with how much we could remember so she gave us sums to calculate and we had to write the answer in Spanish. Some of us found this tricky but most of us enjoyed it and managed to move onto the extension ( writing our own sums and answering it in Spanish).
After that, we moved onto art. We began to bring our CogHeart cam mechanism ideas to life. We began to make the backdrop and characters which we all enjoyed doing. Tomorrow Mrs Burley (Ollie’s mum) will be coming in to help us create the structure for our toys. We can’t wait for everyone to see our finished cam toys.

Willow Class have been enjoying their class book Cogheart and today we have found some ambitious vocabulary and found the definitions for the words.
Today in Topic we did part one of our science investigation. We had to plan our predictions and write what we would need for next week. We needed to use technical words in our writing such as: frequently,recognise,variety and equipment.
