Year 5 Moving People Entry Point

The Year 5 students kicked off their ‘Moving People’ topic in style with a whole day of learning, immersing themselves in their new topic. Throughout the day, they engaged in a number of problem-solving, team building and vocabulary activities in order to prepare themselves for their learning this term.

Year 5 Entry Point  (3)

As a key part of the topic, we will study both push and pull factors that influence migration. Our goal was that the children gained an understanding of how it might feel to have to migrate in an emergency situation. They each brought to school 10 emergency items that they would take in an emergency and shared these with their classmates. There was a fascinating selection that ranged from essentials such as toilet paper and sleeping bags to music and books for entertainment. We even had a life jacket!

Once the children had the chance to share, discuss and rank their items in order of importance, we were ready to go. An alarm sounded throughout the Year 5 classrooms and the children and teachers had to evacuate on a long walk around the school through imaginary forests, mountains, and caves. Finally, they returned to their classrooms to build shelters, trading some of their own items for essential shelter building equipment. They were treated to a delicious bowl of sticky rice in their shelters at lunch time.

In the afternoon, the students continued building their shelters whilst engaging in a number of vocabulary games. At the end of the day, they were treated to some burgers after all their hard work. We had a fantastic day and look forward to learning more about migration!
