Emperors

Welcome to Emperors' Class Page.

 

The children in Emperors class are aged 9-11 and are in years 5 and 6. Mrs Clark, Miss Edwards and Mrs Lightfoot are the class teachers. 

 

Our main topic for the term is a History question of Which invention is best? This will cover Ancient Greeks, Mayans and Victorians, although we will still be learning about lots of other things too.

 

Keep coming back to our page to see all of our wonderful work!

History

 

In History we have continued our topic of Which invention is best? We sampled a traditional Maya hot chocolate recipe using milk, cacao beans, cinnamon, nutmeg and, for some of us, chilli! This was truly HOT chocolate! We then used a technique that we know that the Maya used as it is pictured on pottery - we poured the hot chocolate between cups so that it would be "frothed". We all tried it, then some of us added honey to sweeten it as cacao has quite a bitter taste.

We also learned about how long the Maya Civilisation lasted compared to our previous History topic of the Ancient Greeks. We used a toilet roll to create a timeline, with one sheet representing 15 years. The bottom line is the Maya Civilisation, lasting 3500 years, with the top line representing the surprisingly short 630 years of the Ancient Greeks.

In Computing we have been creating and cracking coded algorithms. We have used Scratch to animate our names.

Collective Worship

 

Year 6 led Collective Worship on the theme of Friendship and Collaboration. We each wrote what friendship means to us on a jigsaw piece, and they all slotted together to show how we collaborate. We acted out the bible story of Jesus and His Disciples, and sang You've Got a Friend in Me.

Gym

 

In Gym we have been thinking about how we control our bodies when balancing. We have been working in pairs or groups to create balances in preparation for our final performance routines. Next week we will be looking at movement.
