A great first week back for year 5/6.
We have started our new topic in history: The Early Islamic Civilisation.
Our first task was to understand where this would fit on our historic timelines. This was completed by creating our own human timelines where we were tasked to order the key eras in history.
In PE, we have started to build up our throwing, catching and stepping skills in order to play netball.
Year 5/6 have moved into their new classroom this week. They absolutely loved showing it off to their parents whilst sharing their impressive maths skills, with their adults, in our parent workshop.
In science, they have revised the parts of the plant using real flowers. This has prepared them for our life cycle work next week.
Our trip to ‘SafetyWorks!’, an interactive safety centre, provided us with innovative, enjoyable learning experiences enabling the children to participate safely in realistic situations illustrating every day hazards and how to prevent them. Here we joined mini workshops for fire safety, RNLI, anti-social behaviour, online safety, Nexus Metro and a well-being workshop. All of the children felt they left equipped many tools we can use to keep ourselves safe.
This year, Year 5/6 have been on a trip to the Life Centre as well as a visit from their planetarium. This week, we completed our live online chat with a range of STEM workers. The children were so enthusiastic and asked some great questions, resulting in some very informative answers. They then went on to look at plant life cycles, using their impressive acting skills to act out the different parts of the cycle. As always, the children have enjoyed lots of partner work; this time using timers to gather as much information as possible!
