- Year 5 will be going on an exciting educational visit to the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum on Wednesday 27 April. This visit is connected with our Themed Learning focus, Space, and will be a great opportunity for children to further develop their knowledge of Space and their factual understanding of our Universe. We will be leaving school at approximately 9.00am and returning to school in the afternoon in time for the usual end of day arrangements. Students will be required to wear uniform as normal on the day, but should wear comfortable walking shoes and a jacket. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you are available to volunteer and help on this trip. Now the weather is getting warmer, please could you encourage your child to bring in a hat and also a water bottle so that they remain well hydrated during the day.
- Years 5 and 6 Sports Morning
Wednesday 11 May (8.45am – 12.50pm) Secondary Sports Field
The students have been busy in their houses organising and choosing their events. All students will have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of 2 events .There is also an option to take part in a fun tug-of-war and house team skipping. After registration, the students will assemble on the Secondary Sports Field. The day will begin with a warm up and stretches. The events have been designed around the FOBISIA designated athletic events. Years 5 and 6 students have been using curricular PE lessons to practice their events. Certain events (track, high jump, skipping and tug of war) will be timetabled events. The remaining events of; long, triple, or three springs jump; quoit throw; shot putt and basketball push are non- timetabled events. This means that competitors can freely move around these events and perform when they have the chance.
Linked to the Themed Learning topic of Space the children will read a selection of rhyming and non-rhyming poetry and share their opinions with each other. They will use a range of space vocabulary and definitions as starting points for their own written work. The children will also visit the Museum of Science and Technology so they will have plenty of material to inspire their writing.
This week in Maths we are revisiting work on angles. The children will be measuring and drawing angles with a special space theme. Children will be exposed to the constellations of our galaxy and afford their ever growing knowledge to measure the angles between individual stars. Towards the end of the week they will also be given the opportunity to create their own personal constellation.
On Wednesday we will go on our trip to the Science and technology Museum as part of our Space Themed learning unit. Children will get an opportunity to investigate and learn about rockets, shuttles, satellites and astronauts. They will be asked to collect videos and images to create a report outlining what they have learnt. The children will also watch an educational film, explaining the history of the solar system. It promises to be an exciting day for all of the children!
