We have been doing some more research on the Aztecs this morning.
Leave a comment with at least one fact you have learnt and can remember !
We have started designing some Aztec masks. They are going to be made out of clay and then decorated the week after.
This links in with our History topic!
Here are some of our first efforts at writing using techniques to build suspense:
Take a look at this video – we’ll be using parts of it next week!
This morning, we have been generating ideas for making our own bread. Last week, we tasted lots of different types of bread and decided what we liked and what we didn’t like.
Here are some of our ideas.
Today, we did some work on converting a story into a script format. We used ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ as a stimulus. Here are some examples being read out.

Tomorrow, you will be starting a large group project on Mountain ranges. Here is a video to get you thinking and planning.
This morning, we have been looking at building ‘virtual’ electrical circuits. We looked at constructing both series and parallel circuits with a variety of components.
We used this website:
My set today tackled some shape translation work. They did fantastically well, as you can see. Next on the list is shape rotation and rotational symmetry.
Here is the clip we watched today on Junior Dragons’ Den. You might want to pick up some tips in case your invention gets through to Vauvert’s Dragons’ Den!
Here is an interesting video showing the Wright Brothers in 1903 trying out their first plave on their initial flight. This fits in nicely with our inventors topic.
Today, we did some work on how to draw electrical circuits accurately using the correct symbols. Here are some examples of our work:
We have been studying about coastal erosion as part of our Coasts topic. Here, we created and produced some posters/fact sheets about ways in which coastal erosion can be prevented.
