Welcome to Bolton Class!
Academic Year 2021-2022
Our Victorian day has been an almighty success! We learned a great deal about life in the Victorian era during our zoom sessions this morning, developed our handwriting skills, learned Victorian poetry and even did drill!

This week, Bolton have been following French instructions to make a puppet. They worked together and picked out the key vocabulary that they knew and translated the instructions in to English. Have a look at what they made!
Bolton Class have been working hard to design and create circuits to support postal workers who work at night. They followed strict criteria and thought about how they would hide the circuits to keep the postal workers neat and tidy. They even included switches that they had made themselves! Royal mail would be impressed!!
Over this week and last, Bolton have been busy creating some fantastic pieces of art. They have used pastels and paint to create cubism portraits, in the style of Picasso. They then went on to study Van Gogh and created their own landscape using 'Starry Night' as their inspiration. Have a look at their 'Sunny Day' pictures!
In RE, we have started to think about what it means to be a Hindu in Britain today. We have started by thinking about things that are special to us and those around us. We then went on to look at a Puja tray and we identified the role of each piece on the tray. Have a look!
We have spent the last few afternoons learning about three different Roman cities. We shared our learning on Power Point, where we also developed our computing skills.
Bolton class have moved on to play scripts. We have some fantastic actors! We have identified the features and used this knowledge to help us to act, using scripts from a Horrid Henry story.
We have been visited by 'Power down Pete' this afternoon. We have been learning about how to save energy, reduce our carbon foot print and how recycled plastics can be turned in to clothing!
In Science this week, we have had fun playing with buzzers, fans and bulbs! We explored complete and incomplete circuits and designed out own hats to help you to see in the dark. We even drew our own circuits!
It is our week on the new equipment and we couldn't be more excited! We have taken full advantage of the sunshine and have thoroughly enjoyed creating races and working together to make obstacle courses! Great team work Bolton and super Golden Values!
In Bolton class this week, we have created stain glass windows to support the retelling of the Easter Story. We also thought about how Jesus must have felt when he was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.
To recap and revisit our lockdown learning, we have been looking at fractions and representing them through drawings. We have had a fabulous time trying to represent fractions in as many different ways as possible.
We have continued to study plants in Science this week and we have thought about the different steps of the life cycle of a flowering plant. We incorporated Art, PE and Science by drawing and acting out the processes. We even thought about the different ways that seeds are dispersed.

In RE, we have been learning about why Jesus is inspiring to some people. Take a look at this interview with The Good Samaritan!
Bolton Class appear to have their very own news reporter!
As we have progressed through out non-chronological report writing, we have shown just how fantastic we are at writing! Our newspapers and fact files were incredibly informative and engaging. We even had a journalist read through our newspaper reports, who stated that our use of the 5w's was fantastic!
Today, we have been learning that the candle of a Christingle represents that Jesus is the light of the world and the ribbon represents Jesus' blood. We passed Jesus' light around our class.
Bolton- Geography. We have been learning about different regions of the world. Have a look at what we found out!

Today, we have taken part in Anti-bullying Week. We discussed what the term 'bullying' means and how we can help if we see or hear it happening. We made our own word searches to help us to remember key vocabulary and designed our own superhero capes to show what we would do to help someone who might be hurting.
These are the faces of triumph and celebration! We have spent a great amount of time over the last two weeks learning to read music and play in time with each other. We appear to have achieved it!
We have been learning about the Stone Age. Have a look at our videos about Skara Brae (a Stone Age settlement) which was discovered in Scotland, in 1925.
