Hill End
On Monday 5th July, we went to Hill End for a day of team building and outdoor fun. We had to work together and support each other to solve many problems like the climbing wall and the blind obstacle course first and then we had a den building competition. Afterwards, we played 40-40 in the woods before we learnt how to build a fire. We then had pizza cooked in the pizza oven before we toasted marshmallows on the fire. It was a busy and long day but everyone worked so well together!

Computing Day
On Friday 21st May, it was Computing Day in Hawthorn! We learnt a brief history of films before learning how to use the app I Can Animate to make our own stop motion animation films. We practised trying to take the best shots and how to ensure they flowed together before creating a storyboard for our own film and making characters, props and scenery. We then filmed our own films which we're going to premiere in the classroom. It involved a lot of collaboration and patience but everyone did a great job working together!

D&T Day
On Thursday 6th May, we had a D&T day! We were tasked by Isambard Kingdom Brunel to design a scale model of a bridge for the new railways. Once we had a company name and logo for our group, we learnt about different types of bridge before we chose which one we were going to use. We had two chances to go and visit the "junkyard" to see what recycled materials we could use before it was time to start building!

We spent the rest of the day building and testing our bridge to make sure that it was structurally sound before we presented our design. We then tested them and all but one bridge held the desired weight! Three of the groups also won a bonus prize for their bridge design or the amount of effort they'd put it to building their model. 

In Science this term, we're building on our learning about electricity. We had a lot of fun recapping what makes a circuit and exploring different ways of making circuits before we learnt about the different symbols used to represent electrical components.

We've been writing persuasive leaflets to convince our reader to buy a first class ticket. You can read some of our leaflets below. Would they persuade you to buy a ticket?
This term, we've been learning about fractions in maths. We started by creating a fractions museum in which we used different equipment and drawings to show a range of different fractions. 
In literacy lessons, we've been learning about non-chronological reports. We then imagined we were explorers in the Amazon rainforest and we'd discovered a new species of animal. Using our geography learning, science learning and the vocabulary words we've been learning, we wrote our own non-chronological reports to share information about our new discovery with the world. We worked really hard on our reports so we hope you enjoy them!
On Tuesday 8th September, we had a rainforest day to introduce our new topic. We looked at videos and photos of the rainforest to help us think of vocabulary to describe it, tried some rainforest fruits, built a model of a rainforest shelter and even made a rainforest in a jar.
