Class 5 - Jaguars

Welcome to Class 5 - Jaguars!


Jaguars are a Y6 class. Our Class teachers are Mrs Christie (Monday-Tuesday) and Mrs Roberts (Wednesday – Friday). Ms Graus is our fantastic Teaching Assistant.

Science Week - Rubber Band Helicopters


We had to follow complicated instructions and use tools to create these helicopters.  How high can yours fly?

Science Week - Fizz Pop


Atomic Abbie came to work with us today.  We explored the world of electricity and then charged ourselves with very amusing results!

Science Week - Egg Drop!


We worked in small groups, with a budget, to create a container to protect an egg when dropped from about 3m.  We had to buy supplies and trade to try to make a successful construction... hmm... we could have been more successful!! Only one group succeeded!

Science Week - Marble Run


We worked in small groups and were all given the same equipment.  Our challenge was to make a marble roll down the table in the slowest time possible (it had to drop off the end).  This marble run was the winner, taking over 29 seconds!

Science Week- Fighter Pilot Reaction Times


To be a fighter pilot you must have very fast reactions – travelling at speeds of over 2500 km per hour (twice the speed of sound) means about 700m every second! So splits of a second can make all the difference, you blink your eyes and you’ve moved an incredible 140m! Could you respond to outside events with minimal delay and take appropriate action?  We measured how quickly we caught a ruler five times.  We found our average time and then used a conversion chart to turn this into our reaction times.


Science Week - Seismographs


To kick off our Science Week we created our own seismographs (which are used to measure the magnitude of earthquakes) and used these to investigate the strength of impact of different types of jump.  We had to think about how to collect and record our results.


World Book Day - Book Cafe


This afternoon we popped down to our local Book Cafe.  The owner, Miss Grant, asked us to look at a variety of books and see whether they appealed to us or not.  It was great fun- especially with the drink and biscuit!

World Book Day 2023!

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas- Character Emotions


We chose a character and particular moment from the book and created freeze frames showing how this character may be feeling.  We then used these images to create a piece of art. We thought about the colours that represent different emotions and used these to shade our images. Finally, we surrounded our image with emotions linked to the moment. We’re really pleased with how they have turned out!

Artist Visit: Zoe Genders


Here are our final designs.  Don't they look amazing!

Artist Visit: Zoe Genders


We have had a fantastic morning working with the wonderfully talented Zoe Genders.  Zoe is an artist based in Sheffield.  She has so many different skills: she paints HUGE murals (you may have seen some of her murals around Sheffield), she creates TINY paper sculptures and she creates really bright collages.  We had a go at creating our own collages.  Here's our work in progress...

Mental Health Awareness Week- Taskmaster Challenge


As part of Mental Health Awareness Week we have been taking part in Taskmaster challenges.  Today we had very, very little time to choreograph the best dance whilst singing the backing track.  Which group did you like the best?

Mental Health Awareness Week- Taskmaster Challenges


As part of Mental Health Awareness Week we have been taking part in some Taskmaster challenges.  This one involved having to create self-portraits using only things found in the natural world.  Can you guess who's who?

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas: Chapter 1


We were each given a section of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne to story map.  The next day, we had to rewrite the section using only our maps!  Then we had to 'uplevel' our writing to create an even better first chapter than the author.  What do you think?  Did we succeed?

Science- Crime Lab- Up Periscope!


To assist in the UK Crime Lab's assignment, we had to prove how the thief could have seen around corners and avoided the CCTV cameras.  We discovered that they must have used the laws of reflection to create periscopes.

Science- Crime Lab


We have been asked by the 'UK Crime Lab' to assist them in solving a theft which occurred in a secondary school.  We first needed to prove ourselves as Light Experts in order to be allowed access to the confidential materials gathered in the case.  We successfully passed the test... wish us luck!

£5 Challenge Enterprise Project


We used all of our enterprise skills to make as much money as possible for charity.  Each group had £5 to spend on resources.  Keep checking to find out how successful we were!

Science: Natural Selection


Today, we looked at how animals can adapt and evolve over time due to natural selection.  We looked at how the bird of paradise and reindeer choose their mate and how, over time, this can change a species 'ornaments' to make them brighter or bigger.

Rainy Day PE


We're not going to let the rain dampen our spirits! We're going to let our competitive streaks run riot and play Dodgeball!

Go Ape!


What a day! We flew through the trees, wobbled across platforms and had a fantastic time.  We really challenged ourselves and all succeeded!
