Year 5 Receive High Praise for Settlements Project

04 December 2015

Throughout this term the Year 5 cohort has been learning all about Settlements.

We introduced our topic by way of geodesic dome construction and then moved through a range of activities covering all areas of the curriculum.  

We planned settlement locations, compared different villages all over the world, created jobs for our settlers, read maps, made bread, discussed the impact of disease and visited Shanghai Urban Planning Museum. 

This journey allowed us to design and construct our model villages for our end of term showcase where parents joined us in the classrooms to share our learning and have the entire process explained to them.  The event was a tremendous success, with all pupils and parents engaging in discussions about the villages and how and why decisions were made.

On Thursday 3 December, our final outcomes were of extreme high quality and the children should be commended for their efforts and understanding.

·         Quotes from parents:

‘The detail is extraordinary’.

‘Thank you for making the learning meaningful and fun’.

·         Quotes from children:

‘Once we had learned how to bake bread, the eating was delicious’ – Aiyana.

‘We are so happy that our parents were impressed by our villages, they even chose where they wanted to live’ – Amelie.

Dan Shrewsbury, Year 5 Class Teacher
