Zoom lessons - Revolutions
The children have enjoyed learning about a number of revolutions during their history and English lessons. This has included the Industrial Revolution, Russian Revolution and the French Revolutions. Alongside this, they have learnt about revolutions that were started by influential women during history, such as the Suffragettes (Emmeline Pankhurst), Rosa Parks and the women that were the 'Human Computers' for NASA. They hot-seated these characters and there were fantastic performances from Punit, Bethany, Julia, Alfie and Aradhya. They came up with ideas for their own revolutions and designed rosettes to promote their causes.
Below are some examples of their brilliant Industrial Revolution writing and the rosettes that they made.
Skyping Kendra Part 2
The year 5 children have now completed their writing about Kendra's life in the outback in Australia. Today, she picked the four winning entries who received an Australian road sign as a prize. Kendra announced the winners live and also Punit read his 'haunted shack' writing to her which was based in the Australian outback. Emily and Roxanne brought in Lamingtons that they had made from Kendra's recipe and they were very tasty! We have enjoyed the conclusion of our Odyssey project and look forward to Discoveries next term.
The children have been involved with a project linking us with the outback in Australia. We have been Skyping Kendra who lives 1 and a half hour's drive from the nearest village! They have been fascinated to find out about her life on a cattle station and we have used email to gain further information. Now, they are writing her 'odyssey' as an information text. The best five from each class will be sent to Kendra and she will select a winner.
Visit to Marwell
We had a great time at Marwell Zoo. Please scroll down to see our picture gallery.
We started our new year off with a bang by investigating how rivers are formed. The children were let loose with a hose and watering can to try to recreate what happens on a tarpaulin. We used chairs, lunch crates and trays to recreate the landscape and used multilink to look at the movement of objects in a river.
- Kit return
- We will be holding a mini-sports day on year 5 Zoom.
- The final took place at 5.30 today.
- Our incredible Rock Heroes battled it out this evening.
- Attention all Rock Heros!
Year 5 had a wonderful time at Marwell Zoo learning all about life cycles. It was a day full of great sights, interesting information and magnificent animals! The children all enjoyed the day and hopefully learnt some new facts about their favourite animals.
