Heroic Hammerheads

Welcome to the Heroic Hammerhead's Class Page!

We have had a great start to our current topic, Blood Heart.  We have been finding out all about the heart and circulatory system.  In Science, we have looked at the parts of blood and their functions.  In English, we have been writing explanation texts about how the circulatory system works.  We are reading 'Pig-Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman as our class book. 

 

This term our class will usually have PE on a Wednesday and Friday but please make sure your kit is in school each day.  Remember that long hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed.  During colder weather you may wish to wear tracksuit trousers for PE.

 

To finish our 'Blood Heart' Topic we carried out a sponsored sports event to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The total raised was £285.13!! Many thanks to all of you who sponsored and supported the event!

Class Assembly Friday 13th October 2017

Thank you to all our family and friends who came to our Class Assembly.  The children did a fantastic job of presenting all the work they have done during our 'Revolution' topic this term.  Their performance of the song 'Our Community', which they had written the main lyrics for, was a brilliant end to the assembly.  Well done Heroic Hammerheads for a super start to Year 5.

Artwork inspired by William Morris

The artist William Morris created beautiful designs of floral patterns, inspired by flowers, plants, birds and fruit.  These were used to create wallpapers that people could use to decorate their homes.

William Morris designs were printed using block printing techniques.  We looked at William Morris designs and used them to create our own patterns.  We made our own printing blocks, and using different coloured inks and paints we made our own prints.

Crime and Punishment

We especially enjoyed looking at Victorian Crime and Punishment. We took on the role of Victorian prisoners to experience some of the punishments prisoners would have experienced! 

The Treadmill - relentless stepping up and down.  No talking or communication was allowed. The 'Prison Warden' could clap a rhythm to ensure a steady rhythm of the steps, and to make sure the pace didn't slow.

Picking Oakum - sitting in rows, prisoners were given lengths of tarred rope (we used string) to finely pick apart all of the strands.  This was done in complete silence and without looking at anyone.

Silence and Isolation - prisoners held the end of rope in each hand and kept the rope taught between prisoners.  The prisoners when had to walk around without the ropes becoming slack.  No talking or communication was allowed.
