Survival Day - 30.04.17
On this day, Year 5 and 6 took part in a morning of survival skills. After being split up into groups, the children rotated around four different activities:
1. Shelter Building- Erecting tents.
2. Map Reading- Locating and marking different locations on a map.
3. Team Building- Work together to overcome practical puzzles.
4. Camp Fire- Making bread with flour, water and a fire pit.
All the children found the experience enjoyable and rewarding, learning many things about how to survive in the harsh outdoors.
Science - Heat Insulation
Year 5 were given the task of investigating which material would best insulate a cup of hot water for the longest. Below are some pictures demonstrating their efforts.
Rock of Ages (Dyson Perrins) - 24.03.17
Today the children of Year 5 were fortunate enough to be invited to watch Dyson Perrins rendition of the musical "Rock of Ages". The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, engrossed in the performance.
Design and Technology - Shelters
As part of our topic, we are studying different shelters. What makes these shelters; strong, fit for purpose and who uses them.
Below are the images of children attempting to build their own shelters out of cocktail sticks and sweets.
Based on Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King", the children were given the task to create their own musical journey.
Micro Science Trip - 13.03.17
The classes of Year 5 and Year 6 visited The Hive to partake in a science exhibition and workshop in collaboration with the University of Worcester. Using scientific reasoning and logical thinking, the children were given the opportunity to gain an insight into radio-waves, forensic identification and air pollution. The children were also given the chance to analyse and discuss scientific artwork.
World Book Day
Victorian School Day
All children (and staff) looked fantastic for our Victorian School Day.
Children made sure they behaved themselves to avoid the cane or dunces hat and we just managed to pass our inspection by reciting times tables in rote and answering a number of RE and spelling questions.
All the children enjoyed the day, however I think they are glad that school is now, not quite as it once was!
The Black Country Museum
Year 5 and 6 had a great day out at the Victorian Life Museum. Read lots more about our trip on the children's blog pages.
Here are a few pictures of the day!
Welcome to Year 5's class page!
Our first topic this year is Rise of the Empire, where we will be looking at Victorian Britain and exploring local history around the town of Malvern. We will soon be going on a local walk around Malvern, identifying traditional Victorian features and buildings. We will be comparing and contrasting life in the Victorian times to modern living and looking at the impact of the rise of the Great British Empire.
Have a look at our Autumn Newsletter for more information!
Year 5 and 6 had a great day out in Malvern. We found out lots about the Water Cure that made Malvern famous in the Victorian times and explored Victorian buildings and even managed the steep trip up to St. Ann's Well! All of the children enjoyed the trip and learnt lots about the history of their local town. Here are some shots of the day!
