Year 5

A big thank you to Molly for winning us a class trip to Hereford Cider Museum! We had a great day finding out about how apple juice and cider is produced using both traditional and modern techniques. The children really enjoyed looking at the old machinery and visiting the cellars filled with thousands of glass bottles! Here are some pictures of the day.

Malvern Hospital Gardens

 

Year 5 have been doing an excellent job helping out Mrs Edmonds maintain the gardens at Malvern Community Hospital. We have now visited the gardens twice and have worked extremely hard to de-weed the raised beds ready to plant new vegetables and flowers this summer. We are planning on visiting the gardens as many times as we can before the end of term to get some new plants in before the holidays. We can then enjoy watching them grow. The children have been very sensible using a range of gardening tools and they have thoroughly enjoyed seeing a huge improvement in the gardens already! Well done year 5!

@AtBristol School Trip

 

Year 5 and 6 had a great day in Bristol on Monday, taking part in workshops and carrying out Science investigations to find out more about Space and Science in general. The children also got to enjoy a show in the Planetarium finding out more about the planets and star constellations. 

 

Here are some pictures of the fun we had!

Clean for the Queen!

 

On Wednesday, Year 5 did our part in helping cleaning up the local area as part of 'Clean for the Queen' week. We ventured to areas around school and further to help clean up the paths and alleys. We found lots of rubbish on the floor, in hedges and right by the side of bins! Year 5 used gloves and litter pickers to collect all the rubbish, which was sorted into landfill and recycling rubbish. Well done Year 5 for helping to look after our environment and our world!

Welcome back to the Summer Term! Our final Year 5 topic this year is Star Gazers and we are learning all things space! We are looking into the history of space exploration right up to the present day, learning all about British Astronaut Tim Peake's mission into space. Children have already enjoyed learning about the different planets,  looking at their positions and distances from the sun. We have made our very own solar system in the classroom during art lessons and acted out the movement of the sun, earth and planets in the playground for our Science!

Year 5's Waxwork Museum!

 

We had a fantastic afternoon today, sharing with parents and visitors what we have learnt about Ancient Greek Gods and Goddess. All of the children (and staff!) had lots of fun dressing up. Children enjoyed acting as waxworks that come to life, being tour guides and talking visitors through all of the work we have produced this half term! 

 

Thank you to everyone that made it! Here are some pictures of the fun we had!

The History Man Visit!

On the Tuesday 2nd February, the History Man came into school to visit year 5 and 6, who have been learning about Ancient Greece. We all had a fun filled day and learnt an amazing amount all about life for the Ancient Greeks. The children got to look at, touch, play with and examine many artefacts and replicas from Ancient Greece.

 

The History Man taught us a lot us things and we had chance to look at and play with lots too. We looked at games, toys, weapons, clothes and artefacts all about Greece. Emma Nash

 

The History Man was really fun, he teaches children new games and told us a lot all about the world. He also taught us a good trick to help draw a map of Ancient Greece using your left hand. The thumb is Athens and between your fingers in Sparta.

My favourite part was when we pretended that bean bags were rocks and threw them at each other. We used sheep skins as shields like the poorer ancient Greeks would have done.

Tudor House Worcester

 

Year 5 had a fantastic day visiting Tudor House in Worcester. The children took part in four different workshops lead by the volunteers there. These allowed the children to learn about Tudor weaving, games and toys, Tudor clothes and finally Tudor buildings and houses. The children got to try out many Tudor experiences and they particularly enjoyed dressing up in Tudor clothes and playing Tudor games. Many of the children decided that living in Tudor times didn't sound great and they are glad they weren't around in the Tudor times!

Worcester Cathedral poetry trip!

 

Year 5 really enjoyed our class trip to Worcester Cathedral! The children were able to explore many different areas of the cathedral including The Crypt, The Chapter House and they even climbed the spiral staircase up the bell tower! With help from writer and poet Ian, the children thought about all of their five senses around the cathedral; exploring smells, sounds, sights, tastes and what they could feel. They then used all of their ideas to write Cinquain poems about the Cathedral. Here are some for you to read!

Colourful, imaginative

Colouring, shining, twinkling

Welcome to year 5!

 

I hope you have all enjoyed your summer and are ready for an exciting and busy first term in year 5!

 

Our topic this term is 'Off With Her Head' where we will be learning all about Tudor Times. We will be looking at kings and queens that reigned during the times of the Tudors and also finding out about famous explorers. In English lessons we will be finding out about Shakespeare and looking at early theatre . We will be comparing what life was like for a child in Tudor Times compared to life now.

 

Later this term we have a school trip planned to Tudor House Museum in Worcester where we will find out more about Tudor homes and life in the 16th century.
