Hello everyone, 


Over the past few weeks, Class 5 have been participating in some brilliant activities! 

We all thoroughly enjoyed Science week, particularly the Minecraft workshop and constructing towers from spaghetti and marshmallows. 

A number of the class represented Hotwells at a hockey tournament. Both teams represented the school outstandingly and showed amazing teamwork. 

We also enjoyed celebrating World Maths Day by learning to draw cardioids. Many of the children challenged themselves to use different mapping patterns #weareambitious. 

Enjoy looking through the photos below!



World Maths Day!

Hockey Tournament!

What a great start to Term 4!


Class 5 have completed their DT unit on mechanisms. In groups, the children designed their own cranes that used pulley systems. I was overwhelmed by the problem solving skills of the students, well done!

In Geography, we are continuing to learn about biomes. This week, we compared the biomes found in the key continents of Europe, North America and South America using Venn diagrams.  


We have reached the end of Term 3!

In our final week, we took part in a wonderful workshop all about fast fashion to celebrate Earth Week 2022. 

We also had a great time sharing our Ancient Greek projects. All the students came up with such amazing, creative projects. Well done! 


Please remember that next term we will start swimming every Monday (from 28th February). All children will need to bring their swimming kit to school.

For updated information about what we will be learning next term, please see our curriculum overview. 


Have a restful half term break, 

Miss Weaver 



Another fun, activity filled week in Class 5!

This week we have been making pulleys in DT and exploring the effect of air resistance in Science using the parachute! 

We have just started our new DT unit, learning all about Mechanisms.

In our first lesson we looked at different gears and created our own gear chains!


This term we are looking at 'Forces' in Science. 

In our first lesson we looked at the effect of friction. We started by picking up jelly cubes with chopsticks and then added oil to investigate the change in friction. 

We all noticed that it was much tricker picking up the jelly cubes with oil on... THE FRICTION HAD DECREASED!

A selection of photos showing some of the children's brilliant DT and Art work. 

We had great fun designing, sewing and painting our own tote bags in class. We had a catwalk show to show off the brilliant bags! We have also enjoyed our recent Art topic that took inspiration from nature. We have been using textiles and collage in lessons to create some beautiful pieces of art.

'Riding Out'

Hello Everyone, 

We have been extremely busy since returning to school after the half term break. 

In Science be have been continuing with investigating materials and have begun to look at reversible and irreversible changes. In PE we have begun our sessions on gymnastics and all had a go at travelling across the floor using different rolls. In English, we have used hot-seating to explore the characters emotions from our class novel, The Nowhere Emporium. Finally, we produced some beautiful art work inspired by Remembrance Day. 

Here are a few photos to show you what we have been up to!


Hello Everyone, 

We had a great time making our dragon eggs and drawing our self portraits for The Arts Trail.

The children worked really hard on their projects and they all looked fantastic. 

Have a look at the pictures below if you didn't make it to the trail. 

Hello everyone!

I was overwhelmed with the bravery and courage shown by so many of the class on camp last week. The children represented Hotwells brilliantly and should be extremely proud of all their achievements across the three days. The beautiful mountain walk in the sun on the final day was the perfect end to the week. The children supported their peers and finished a scenic four mile walk all together. I hope everyone has had a relaxing weekend and is looking forward to being back to school on Monday. 

Pictures from camp will be uploaded in the week for you all to look at. 

Miss Weaver :) 


Good Evening!


We have just finished tucking into hot chocolate and marshmallows. The rain didn't stop us today as we had a brilliant day caving and canoeing. Lots of the children took on challenges in the cave including going though tunnels and experiencing total darkness! We played lots of fun canoeing games that challenged our paddling skills and required us to all swap boats.... some of us ended up a little soggier than others. Everyone had brilliant fun with smiles on their faces. 

Due to poor wifi connection a lot of the photos from yesterday and today have been unable to upload. I can assure you that there are lots of fantastic photos of all the children coming soon. 

We are looking forward to our final day hike.


See you tomorrow, Class 5 :) 


Hello everyone! We have had a very exciting first day on camp in the sunshine. Everyone showed amazing courage on the leap of faith and the zip wire! This evening we are going orienteering and enjoying our first meal together. We're excited to go caving and canoeing tomorrow!
