Spring Term 2018
What can I say…what an amazing trip Year 4 and 5 had at the Young Voices event on Monday. It is something that I am sure will be a lasting memory for the children. They sang with over 5,000 children at the Birmingham Genting Arena and what a sound they created! We’ve had such positive feedback from parents that were able to attend the event and watch the concert in the audience and the children have all commented so enthusiastically about the experience too. This is something we plan to do annually as a trip for Year 4 and 5 as we feel it is such a beneficial trip for the children. Keep an eye out for more information in the summer term about next year’s trip.
Year 5 have been investigating how to make a safe landing with a parachute because Indiana Jones doesn’t want to break a leg when he parachutes in. They decided to investigate what would happen if different variables were changed. These ranged from changing the weights, the size, shape and material of the parachutes, and the number of strings attached to the parachute. Indiana is looking forward to their results.
Year 5 Homework – Biomes and Volcanoes linked to Indiana Jones topic
Year 5 pupils have worked extremely hard on their homework tasks. The classroom is now over flowing with shoe box biomes and exploding volcanoes. They all look spectacular.
