To begin our new ILP ‘Scream Machine’ this week, 5W created a simulated roller coaster in our classroom. Using on screen real footage of a roller coaster ride and a computer-generated simulation, we sat in our ‘cars’ and experienced falling, twisting and looping movements, thinking about the emotions, feelings and sensations involved. Just like the real thing!
In our work on life-cycles, 5W have recently investigated the internal and external parts of an unfertilised chicken egg, like those that we buy in the shops. Although we were all familiar with a chicken egg, using torches and tweezers, we were able to look much closer than we have ever looked before and then separate each part. We then
This week, children in 5W and 5S met in the Learning Hub for a science lesson. Each class had been studying different life-cycles (of Mammals and Amphibians) and they were given the opportunity to ask each other questions and find out about what each class had learned. Some children also chose to address the room and present their findings. Classes
Our netball superstars played their first match against Potters Green at the end of the Autumn Term. We won both games; a great start to the year. The children worked well as a team and put into practise some of the skills they have been taught. Well done to all and thank you to the parents who came to support
Like 5W, 5S have also been dissecting lilies in order to see inside them. We have been trying to identify the male and female parts of a ‘perfect flower’ such as the lily. The pollen does get a bit messy but we were extra careful when it came to separating out each part.
The weather can sometimes make finding warmth and shelter from the rain an impossibility during Forest School but luckily we’ve learned some new skills in order to make these fantastic shelters to keep use warm and dry when the weather turns! We used different types of knots to; attach rope to the tree, tie two bits of rope together and
The only Year 5 Arts Awarders, Lola, Sarah and Maddison, have written an amazing blog. Read on to find out more… Our favourite activity in Arts Award so far has been designing our own outfits. We had lots of fun and found it very inspiring because we had so many varieties of colours to choose from. We also had many
5W have recently had great fun, dissecting lilies and closely examining the different parts of the flower. This is the beginning of their work on life-cycles, and is part of their ‘Allotment’ topic.
