SPRING TERM 2020

 

 

YEAR 5 SCIENCE PLANETARIUM VISIT FROM THE NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY

This week we were the incredibly fortunate hosts of the University of Nottingham's inflatable planetarium called the 'inflativerse'. Year 5 were the special children that got to experience crawling in the inflativerse and learning lots about the different constellations and they got to find out about a Greek myth that explained the big bear constellation. Back in class the children also became experts in sorting galaxy photos by colour, size and type. It was a fantastic experience and we really hope they will come back next year!

This week we have been learning all about 'The Merchant of Venice' as a school. In Year 5, we have been particulalry focussing on empathising with the characters, especially Shylock and Bassanio. We also produced some lovely art work.

This week has been assessment week, as a reward for the children's hard work, we did some outdoor learning. The children had a colour chart which they had to match up to outdoor items, it was a very refreshing (cold) event.

Chris White Workshop

Those children who took part in the RED January competition gained the reward of working with Chris White in a special workshop. It is safe to say the children loved it!

GREAT Project

Year 5 have begun their 4 week GREAT project during the first week of term. They have been looking at healthy and positive relationships. We have made a wonderful start, here are a few photos from the first session:

Energy and Forces
Our topic this half term is 'ENERGY & FORCES'.  To kickstart our topic, we designed, made and evaluated our own wind powered vehicles, learned about air resistance and tested our vehicles to see how far they would travel with a blast from a hairdryer! We've had a great week! Well done to Nikhill, whose vehicle travelled the furthest in Class 11.  It was a close call!

RE WEEK - PILGRIMAGES

To kick start our week on pilgrimages, we visited St Leo's and Simon spent an hour with us teaching us about Christian pilgrimages.

STRANGE SIGHTINGS IN OBS!

Year five children have been heavily involved in investigating what could have caused unusual items to be scattered across our school trim trail! It has even been reported that they could be from another planet! The children have written some fantastic news reports sharing their story!  We will share some on here soon!
