Year 5 found out about a new opportunity that will enhance our school community: mini-Police!
Joining our classroom learning about rivers with practical experience, Year 5 journeyed to Ashford and studied a river as well as receiving a very interesting tour around the waterworks to discover how the water we flush down our toilets ends up coming back through our taps (with lots of cleaning in between!)
The children began their work on the stained glass window at the front of the school - the centre tree will be a poppy to mark the Centenary.
An actress from Commotion in the Ocean came in ahead of their performance to do a drama workshop with the children and talk about the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans (see above).
The children did some angle measuring and drawing before playing angle golf (see above).
A group of Year 5 girls were kindly invited by Bruton School for Girls to attend a ‘Girls in Science Day’ Event. Exciting activities awaited the children and they learned how to make bath bombs to enjoy later back at home. They all had a fabulous time and have been inspired to become the scientists of tomorrow (see above).
After a busy afternoon and evening everyone had a lovely nights sleep!
The children undertook an experiment on upthrust and gravity to work out which shape of plasticine would travel the fastest through the water (above).
Our new (to us) books arrived ready to be place on the shelf. These more challenging texts are accompanied by audiobooks where the children can read a chapter at home before being read a chapter school (see above).
Year 5 enjoyed an afternoon of listening to classical music as they undertook their work - each fortnight they will have the opportunity to listen to a new music type whilst they work before discussing which are their favourites and why (see above).
