Congratulations Hawk Class! Your performance at the festival was outstanding. You really sang your hearts out and smiled from ear to ear, despite the hot weather.
Thank you for your amazing effort.
From Team Hawk
This week, Hawk Class has spent time designing and making marvellous marble runs.
First we had to sketch two different designs before choosing our final design. Next we had to get some pieces of wood before measuring and sawing them to make a jinx frame. When we were sawing we made sure we were very safe by holding the saw carefully and putting our fingers into a claw position.
Then we picked six pieces of smooth balsa wood to make our fantastic challenges. Hopefully these will make good obstacles for our marbles when we play with them.
After that, we painted the marble run and decorated them with lots of fabulous paints. They now look really colourful and the class are really looking forward to playing with them.
Hawk’s thoughts on making marble runs:
Marya, Sophie and Molly are part of their local Brownies group and in order to gain a new badge they were very brave and performed in front of the class. They sang two songs beautifully, which the class really enjoyed listening to. They even had special outfits and created their own props to make the performance even more interesting. Well done girls! Hopefully you will have your new badges soon.
Yesterday, Hawk Class had the amazing opportunity to learn the intricate skill of stop motion animation. It was hosted by Angela, who has worked on world famous programs such as Wallace and Gromit and Pingu. The children were certainly inspired and were all able to create their own characters and short films.
Hawk Class enjoyed…
In Hawk Class, we have combined our mathematical understanding of acute, obtuse and right angles with Kandinsky’s abstract art.
We started the lesson identifying the various angles on the floor before using these angles to create art. The class were able to create exciting abstract pieces which were full of colour and shapes.
Hawk’s can you find your work?
Last week we took part in a whole PAT event to celebrate STEM week. Science, Technology, Engineering,Maths. Our task was to design a pollution free car. The children came up with some innovative ideas. We took our designs and ideas to Ralph Allen School on Tuesday night. It was really exciting to see and share all the ideas on display. Thank you to all those that came along to support this event. Hannah, Max, Blake, Sofia and Molly were great ambassadors for the class. Well done!
