Alternative Sports

Yesterday, Year 5 had alternative sports where they played Tchoukball. The children had fun developing core skills and working together as a team. Take a look below...

Green 1 Class Assembly 

On Friday 6th October, Green 1 shared their learning journey so far this year with the rest of the school, family and friends. The audience were excited to see the dance the children had choreographed, exploring daily life and emotions of soldiers in WW1. The children also shared some of their poetry where they used their inference skills as well as new vocabulary we had been exploring. Within the assembly, the children sang two songs. If you would like to take a listen, please take a listen using the links below.

Treacherous Trenches - Stunning Starter

We started our topic with the news that Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria had been assassinated. Shocked by the events, we were determined to investigate the culprits and their motives. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand was heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary. He was inspecting the army in Sarajevo with his wife Sophie. Seven young Bosnian Serbs planned to assassinate Franz Ferdinand as he drove along the main road in Sarajevo, the Appel Quay. The first conspirator who tried to kill Franz Ferdinand threw a bomb at his car. He missed and was arrested. Unfortunately, the car stopped in front of Gavrilo Princip, one of the conspirators, who was on his way home thinking he had failed. Princip pulled out a gun and shot at Franz Ferdinand, hitting him in the jugular vein. There was a tussle, during which Princip shot and killed Sophie. By 11.30am, Franz Ferdinand had bled to death. We then looked at the response by leaders around the rest of the World.

Today we travelled to Bodmin jail and were able to see the cells in which many prisoners were held and hear about the many uses the jail has had since it opened in 1779.Did you know the crown jewels were held in Bodmin jail during the World War 1 and over 20,000 people once came to the jail just to see two men hung! The children learnt many wonderful facts throughout the day and despite some of the stories being very gruesome, the children really enjoyed being able to walk where the prisoners had once walked and listen to the guide who could tell them more about the history of the building and its future - Look out for major developments in 2019!

E-safety day February 2017  

 

During E-safety day, we watched and discussed the new reosureces from Ceop called 'Play, Like, Share'. 

Play Like Share follows the adventures of Sam, Ellie and Alfie as they form a band and enter their school’s Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but ‘cool’ Popcorn Wizards as they go. The three friends learn that while the internet can help, they need to use it wisely and safely.  We learnt  how to stay safe online and in particular how to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressurising and threatening behaviour by people we might meet online. We also discussed what to do if we did have any concerns. 

 

Please watch the videos at home and join with us as we all learn how to stay safe online.

World Book Day 2017

During World Book day, the children in Year 5 focused on the author Michael Morpurgo. 

 

We listened to an interview about Michael’s life and found out that he has written over 120 books!

The rest of the morning was spent listening to, making inferences about and finding out about the characters in the short story ‘Silver Ghost’.

Who is the Silver ghost? Who caused the fire?

We created clay models of the main character Nathaniel Bickford and wrote down everything we has learnt about him in the text.

After we had heard most of the story, we made our own predictions about who we thought has started the fire…we won’t spoil it for you but a lot of the children guessed correctly!

The story did leave us with a few questions though. Who was the silver ghost? How did the petrol get on his leg? Why did the old man speak to him?

In the afternoon, we went outside with our buddies and did some extreme reading on the adventure playground and outdoor classroom.

Remember..keep reading and bring in your reading record  - what reading karate band will you achieve next?

BREAKING NEWS!

On the morning of Wednesday 23rd February, Miss Wells was shocked to discover her classroom destroyed and the beloved stick insects were GONE!!! Who would take them? Why have they taken them?

 

The children spent the morning being detectives as they learnt how to explore a crime scene without removing or damaging any evidence.  They wore forensic suits and took pictures of any evidence they saw in the room. They also drew the crime scene to help them see the journey of the criminal through the crime scene.

 

The children’s personal details were given to the police including finger prints and DNA samples in the form of a cotton wool bud swab and a hair sample. Pictures were taken of each child for the police file.

 

Miss Balsdon led the  children in a walkie talkie exercise and the children learnt the police alphabet so that they could send important information quickly and efficiently without an errors in the messages.

 

The children have gathered a lot of evidence which will help them solve the crime. Watch this space to find out more as our investigations continue…

E-safety day 

On Monday we had our E-safety day. In Year 5 we used the 'Thinkyouknow' resource and videos called "Play, Like, Share". In the videos we met serval characters who taught us how to stay safe online especially when thinking about uploading videos online, commenting on other people's post and pictures and knowing when it is okay to share information or pictures and when it is not. 

 

We used role play, scenarios and lots of dicussions to help us learn how to stay safe. 

Remember think before your click, think before you post, think before you share! 

See our E-safety page for more information!

Royalty and Revolution! 

 

We began the New Year and new topic with a very royal event - the Coronation of Queen Victoria. First, we (well those who were deemed rich enough) created crowns whilst the poor spent their time creating handkerchiefs and flags to wave. Once we were ready, we gathered ready to greet the princess. She arrived in a horse drawn carriage and through a crowd of loving subjects. The Turkish ambassador was overcome by the grandeur of the event and fainted! Once we was recovered, the crowning could occur. We used clips from ITV's Victoria to show us what it would have been liked and acted along with the other Lords and Ladies who were there. After the princess had been crowned, we chanted 'God Save the Queen' before heading back to class for a Coronation dinner and celebration. Of course we had cucumber sandwiches and the Queen's favourite Victoria sponge! In the afternoon, we played parlour games and had our pictures in front of the green screen  - pictures will be uploaded shortly! 

 

We had a great Stunning Start and now look forward to our exciting learning which will take us to the Great Exhibition of 1831 as we learn about the technological advances brought about by the Industrial Revolution.

Science week 

During the first week of term, we had Science Week. Our focus was 'Forces'. Using our scientific enquiry skills of planning, observing, measuring, recording and concluding, we discovered the wonders of gravity, air resistance, water resistance, friction and magnetism. We conducted a range of investigations: How to make a boat move quicker? How does the shape of a parachute effects its fall?  What is weight and mass? What material would make the best brake pad? What happens when you put two magnets together? We had to make sure we conducted a fair test so used the phrase 'Cows Moo Softly' to help us.

 It was a great week and we learnt a huge amount about how to be scientists and the amazing forces around us!

Equality and Diversity  day - Faith 

Buddhism  

In Year 5 we focused on Buddhism. We had two speakers who shared their practice of Nichiren Buddhism. We were able to listen to the chant ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ which is chanted several times throughout the day and heard how James used this chant to change his mind set on life. He believes that you can improve your life by looking inside yourself and improving yourself rather than looking to a god to make you better.   We explored mindfulness through mediation and looked at how we could be like a Lotus leaf and rise above anything that is negative or that makes our lives muddy just like the Lotus leaf grows out of muddy water.  In the afternoon, we created a piece of artwork which showed what was I our minds as we meditated. These included images of things we enjoy in life and those around us.

MARVELLOUS MIDDLE

 

To celebrate the middle of our topic and all of our learning in music, we are having a Marvellous Middle celebration on Thursday 3rd November 3:15 - 3:45pm in the hall where we will entertain you with our singing and drumming. Families and Friends welcome. Please fill in the form on your child's letter and inform us how many of you are coming. 

 

Send a Cow visit 

 

 Today Year 5 had a special visit from four 'Send a Cow' ambassadors. They spoke to us about the charity, when it was set up and why and told us about life in Africa. The children were involved in a role play of how the charity educates and supports communities in water sanitation and storage projects and how to grow and maintain their own food sources through building keyhole gardens and livestock. Over the next term, we will continue to learn about the charity and look deeper into global environmental issues in Africa and the UK.

Year 5 news! 

 

Year 5 This has been a busy couple of weeks in Year 5. Last week, we began making our products for the summer fair. The children worked tirelessly each day to produce Fantastic Friendship Bracelets, Calming Candles and Silly Squeeze Stress Balls. There was wool, flour and newspaper everywhere but at the end of the week we had created hundreds of items and were ready for the fair. On the day, the Silly Squeeze Stress Balls proved the most popular and sold out by 12.30pm with the rest of the products not far behind. We are in the process of working out how much profit we have made and will have our Finance Managers announce the result next week! Thank you to everyone who supported the fair and our company – New Generation

Celebrating the Queen's 90th Birthday!!

Art Extravaganza

Yesterday afternoon saw the first great Callington art extravaganza! Every child –from Nursery to Year 6 – participated in this extraordinary event. The children in Year 5 explored the famous artist Picasso. They experimented using his work as inspiration and tried to recreate pieces of his work before creating their own Picasso mask. The children thoroughly appreciated all of the visitors who came and supported them – thank you!

Dragons’ Den

 

Time to enter the Den! The children worked in teams to pitch the 6 products to the Dragons. The children were very excited to see Mr Scott return to school to be a Dragon and alongside our two Governors Keith and Helen, they made a formidable team! They had to ensure they knew the top 3 reasons why the product was brilliant, costings and most importantly how much profit each product would make. The Dragons grilled them with questions and finally made their decision and choose 3 products to be sold at the summer fair:

Silly Squish Squeeze Balls

Fantastic Friendship Bracelets

Calming Candles 

 

Over the next couple of weeks the children will be creating adverts and leaflets for the 3 products. Make sure you are at the Summer Fair to buy one!

E-safety day 2016

Today we had E-safety day. It was a day of discussion and debate as we spoke about the ways we use the internet and the potential dangers. We looked at how having lots of ‘friends’ or ‘followers’ on social media didn’t mean you had lots of friends in real life and how we might not actually know the people watching our online activity. Then we explored our digital footprint and how whatever you put online is there for ever. We looked at some videos to remind us how to behave online and to each other and created E-safety help cards, posters and a board game.

 

Have a look at the videos below. 

Horrible Histories- Prudish Victorian- Don't lie about your age

Mr Pooter, a Victorian gentleman finds out the hard way why its not a good idea to lie about your age online.

5 Ways to Make a Positive Digital Footprint!

Students need to be aware of the digital footprint they are creating. During all their navigating, learning and creating are they also building their sense of "digital ethics"? Will the digital footprints they leave behind add up to a positive image from colleges, potential employers and future opportunities?

Can I be your friend?

Ever thought how odd your online life is? Ever thought what could go wrong? This film explores the issues around ENO's production of Nico Muhly's Two Boys, a new opera that lifts the lid on the dangers of living our lives online. (Lots of you have been wondering who that man is...?

Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!

 

CONGRATULATIONS to Alice who won the Junior Town Crier competition against two other schools during Mayfest! She entertained the crowd with a cry on 'What makes her angry!' She was judged on content, diction and loudness. Look out for Alice at the summer fair and other school events making her cries!

MAYFEST 2016 

 

On Saturday (14th) children and parents from Callington Primary School took part in the 4th May festival. Having created a giant dragon for the event, we joined the procession along with samba drums, Breton dancers and many more! The dragon gained a lot of attention and joined in the serpent dance in the centre of town. A massive thank you to all the parents and children who helped at the event! Start thinking about what type of giant we can do next year! 

THE APPRENTICE NEWS

 

We have been working hard during our topic'The Apprentice' and can now introduce our new company called NEW GENERATION!  Last week we held interviews for managing directors and appointed Zion, Easa, Harriet and Lily. They then interviewed the other children for the other job roles. The children who were interviewed were really brave as it was a tough interview process.

The Apprentice

 

A business topic where the children will become members of a real, running business. They will design and manufacture  products which will be pitched to a panel of experts (the Dragons) and will then be sold at the summer fair in June. Watch this space! 

 

 

Stunning start

 

The children came in dressed to impress. They looked professional, reliable and ready to become part of a new and exciting business venture. Over Easter, the children were tasked with creating a new product to sell at the summer fair. Various items have been made and pitched to the whole year group! Once we have heard all the pitches, Miss Wells and Miss Delve will reduce the products to just 6 which will then be pitched to the Dragons. 

 

During the Stunning start, the children learnt about stocks and shares and had to use their business brains to make as much money as possible in just an hour. Then they became creative and created a new toy for a younger child. Later on we learnt about world currencies and worked out how much different products would cost across the world and well as working at £1 equivalents  so we will never be short changed!

 

This week will be writing our own C.V's and then applying for jobs within the company.

Book week

 

On World Book day we ventured into the world of J.K Rowling and Harry Potter. Our focus was on one of the text book used in Hogwarts called 'Fantastic Beasts and where to find them'. In November it is being turned into a film. We listened to an extract about the Cornish Elves rampaging a classroom during a ‘Defence against the Dark Arts’ lesson. Later, with the help of Dobby the house elf, we made up our own fantastical beasts and even gave them a Ministry of Magic classification rating.

Extreme reading! We explored lots of ways and place you can read in. We even went on the adventure and in one of the mini-buses! 

Book Week 

 

In the afternoon, we became Macavity and used the 'Cats' musical for inspiration and to get hints and tips on how to move like cats. 

 

Book week! 

 

Green 2 entered their classroom to find it destroyed! Officers from Scotland Yard asked the pupils to help them find out about the criminal by looking at the evidence left behind. Using their excellent observation and deduction skills, the children concluded the criminal was Macavity the Cat!! 

We then spent time learning the poem off by heart ready for Friday's sponsored recital. 

Green 2 go to Pizza Express

 

Green 2 travelled into Plymouth on Thursday and went behind the scenes in a working Pizza Express. We learnt about the ingredients which go into the pizzas and then, after putting on an apron and hat, made our own margarita pizza also called the queen of pizzas. We waited whilst they were cooked in the over; it only takes 4 minutes. Then we took them back to school with us and ate our delicious creations.

 

Green 1 will be heading to Pizza Express next week for their pizza making experience!

Diversity in Britain - Greeks

Today we took a closer look at what it means to be British and thought about how Britain is a multicultural nation. We discussed the phrase 'Cultural Diversity' and how it means a range of different societies or people of different origins, religions and traditions all living and interacting together. We discovered that Britain has benefited from diversity throughout its long history and is currently one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world.

 To unpick the value of tolerance we set about learning about and developing a respect for our own and other cultures. Today, we focused on the Greek culture. We even had an expert in our midst in the form of Mr Scott who is part Greek.

 

We learnt about an area in London called ‘Palmers Green’ but has the nickname ‘Palmers Greek’ due to the number of Greek residents living there.

 

During the morning, we made traditional Greek food in the form on Mousakka and Baklava. We then asked Mr Scott to translate our names into Greek before learning about some traditions. One tradition we looked ta was the christening of babies. Although similar to Christening conducted in the UK, there were some differences including not washing the baby for three days once it is Christened. We also learnt about Name days. If you have the same name as one the Saints, then you get a name day. On this day, a bit like a birthday, you eat cake and see you friends.

 

In the afternoon, we tried the food we had made earlier as well as some additional Greek cuisine such as olives. Some of us had to be brave to try it but in the end most of us enjoyed it! 

 

We enjoyed finding out about one of the many cultures of people living in the UK and ensuring we celebrate British diversity.

Bella Italia

Buongiorno!

This term in Year 5 we will be learning about Italy.  We started our topic having a ‘Taste of Italy’ day which included tasting Italian food, experiencing Italian music, watching snippets of Italian films and delving into the Italian language.  In the afternoon, we looked into renaissance art and had a go at recreating them.

 

Throughout the topic we will be focussing on the geography of Italy including historical events such as Pompeii and learning about the orchestra and opera through our music lessons.  We look forward to delving further into the culture of Italy and may even set up our own restaurant by the end of the term!

 

Look out for updates and learning, 

Arrivederci!

Tim Peake launches into space!! 

 

Today, Year 5 watched the incredible launch of Tim Peake into space as he makes his way to the International Space Station.  

We watched it live and counted down to blast off. 

We will keep track of Tim during his 6 months on board and hopefully see his return in June!

The space planetarium comes to Callington!

 

 

On Monday the children in Year 1 and 5 experienced the wonders of the space dome, We learnt about the amazing solar system, how the moon appears to change shape in the sky and gazed at the thousands of stars that populate our skies. We learned how the North Star stays still in the sky as the other stars over overhead and where to look for the sun in the morning and evening. 

 

Here are some quotes from the children:

‘When the stars moved, I felt like I was moving; it was amazing!’

‘I enjoyed learning about when we would experience a full moon.’

‘I found out that there were even larger stars than our own and they can be different colours’

‘I was amazed by the images of Pluto and found out this was a dwarf planet’ 

‘I found it interesting to spot shapes in the stars and now can do this at home.’ 

Stay Safe On The Internet

E-safety Day

Year 5  - Cyberbullying

In Year 5 we decided to focus on cyber bullying. First, we looked at the definition of bullying and decided that bully is the ‘deliberate, hurtful and repeated behaviour by an individual or individuals which causes an imbalance of power.’ Having discussed this we looked at how this can become cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is the use of the internet and technological devices to bully someone.

 

We found out that many people say nasty or hurtful things online as they feel they are behind a mask and we discussed why this was. We watched the film ‘Say it to their face’  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRznvxQUYXc) which was quite shocking but showed us the impact of words. We also looked at some of the CBBC film  (http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/26136189)   which highlighted that cyber bullying can effect anyone, adult or child and the bullies can be anyone child or adult.

 

As we know, many people hide begin the screen or mask of the internet. We discussed the types of ‘avatars’ we have on our online games and what they say about us. We know it is important to have avatars to hide our identities  in order to keep us safe but they can also be used to hide the identity of a bully. We created our own masks.  On one side it showed a positive avatar where we have protected out identity and included some of the SMART rules for safe use of the internet. On the other side  we showed the negative side of an avatar such as lying about your age, saying nasty things to others  and included the impact on sufferers of cyber bullying.

 

In the afternoon, we were lucky to have a visit from the local policeman. He highlighted further the dangers of the internet if not used wisely. We were able to show him that we knew how to protect ourselves and keep ourselves safe on the internet.  We know a lot about E-safety but we must now put it into practise and keep ourselves and others safe! We must remember it is a digital Tattoo that is left behind not a footprint as everything online is there forever on one form or another.

 

A message from the teachers:

Although the children know how to keep safe, some children did admit to playing games above their age restriction, talking to those they have not met in person and sharing information which could give away their identity. We encouraged the children to speak to their parents, teachers or responsible adults around them if they had any concern. We sk you to ask the children as well about their online activity and monitor their use of the net.  Please go to the  CEOP website to report any suspicious activity  using the red button  https://www.ceop.police.uk/

 

Some articles on Cyber bullying

Say it to their face - Cyber bullying

If you wouldn't say it in person, why say it online? Stop Cyber-bullying. Sometimes we say things online we would never say in person.

Forest school - a little wet but we survived!

Welcome to Space school!

 

For our Stunning Starter we entered school as space cadets. We had a morning of activities which tested a range of skills.

 

Firstly, we had to test our fitness. We climbed ropes, jumped over gym equipment, practised our throwing and catching and eye and hand coordination and balanced on beams. .

After break, we tested our fine motor skills, made alien slime, which stretched across the rooms, and overcame fear where we had to place our hands in various items (including baked beans) to fetch hidden treasures.

Finally, after lunch, we showed off our creativity and made up our own planets.

 

We are now ready for the exciting learning which will take place this term!

“My head is Ra; My heart is Ma’at; My legs are Horus; My belly is Skhert; My arms are Thoth.

There is no part of me that is not godly. May I defeat the Duat and gods in my life to come.”

The end has come and now we must prepare for the funeral procession.

Firstly, we created models of our gods.  Each one has its own purpose and characteristics. We learnt about textures and ensured we used a range of surface textures in our clay. The gods will be used in the Hall of Judgement.

Then, we began  the mummification process. To make it as real as possible we used fish.

The process was gory and some of us felt a little ill but we battled through and salted our fish for two days.

After this we had a day preparing our Book of the dead. We needed to come up with spells and poems to help the deceased through the Afterlife and give them tips as to how to get past the gods. We also created poems of what we thought the Afterlife would be like.

On the day, we began by opening up the slated fish and covering them in spices, oils and bandages.

We then practised being mourners (the Egyptians were experts at this!) and created dances to go with Egyptian music.

Before break we awakened the senses in the fish (our pharaohs) by burning incense, dancing and playing music.

We were now ready for the procession. We walked around school wailing, dancing, playing music and proclaiming how great out pharaoh was.

Arriving in the designated burial site, we lowered the bodies into the ground with help from our two gods and said our final goodbyes.

Returning to the classroom, we enjoyed a feast to celebrate the event.

After lunch, it was time to enter the Afterlife and battle through challenges such as crossing a river of lava and getting through the Judgement hall. To pass through the Field of Paradise the children had to get past 42 gods. They came up with two truths and a lie. If they could trick the gods and keep the lie hidden, they entered the field of paradise. If they were found out, they entered the domains of the Devourer of the Dead!

We have had a fantastic day and look forward to our new topic…coming soon!!

This week in Year 5

 

In Year 5, we are continuing our journey through time from birth to death in our Tomb Raiders topic. This week we have begun to discuss the Ancient Egyptian’s beliefs on the afterlife and gods. In groups, we became farmers, scribes, soldiers, slaves and officials and had to research and decide on a god which would benefit us the most. We then presented our ideas to the class and voted on which god we should build a statute of in our village. The god Osiris won. We have discovered that the Ancient Egyptians had to go through a long process before they got to their heaven called the ‘Fields of Paradise’ including having their heart weighted against a feather and having to be judged by 42 gods. Next week will be our fantastic funeral finish and we have a lot to prepare beforehand. Look out for hired mourners pretending to cry, mountains of food, dancers, scribes writing pages of hieroglyphics, embalmers mummifying bodies and a grand procession. We just hope we have done enough to move into the afterlife and not be left to the ‘Devourer of Death!’ 

Equality and Diversity

 

In Year 5 we looked at what being disabled means. We found out that you can be born with a disability or acquire one later on in life. We watched a video which looked at famous people who had a diagnosed disability. Did you know, Albert Einstein didn’t talk until he was three?

 

Here’s the video we watched: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paj6bA3ktMs

 

We tried to imagine what life would be like with a disability and how you might have to adapt your lifestyle. We walked around the school blindfolded to gather a sense of what life would be like if you were blind. The children realised that it could be quite scary even if you knew the environment you were in well. They also found out that they would need to us their other senses more to be able to gathered information about what was around them.

 

Later on, we discussed sign language and learnt the song ‘I can sing a rainbow’ in sign language. Here is the song for you to try.

 

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_0tmxHhQQPp4/TUdSDpBV5XI/AAAAAAAABis/KqYjiwAYeTI/s1600/rainbow%2Bcopy.jpg

After break, we were asked by Mr Aspen to conduct a survey of our school to see how well we cater for those with disabilities. We walked around the school and discovered equipment, including a wheelchair lift and ramps, which would enable wheelchair access to all classrooms. We also looked of signs to ensure everyone was safe in an emergency.

 

Finally, in the afternoon, we learned about Alison Lapper and other ‘Mouth and Foot’ artists. We had a go at creating picture using paint brush placed in our mouths and between our toes. Here is what we created.

 

Although it was fun to try, we realised how much skill it took to create even a simple pattern and were amazed by the intricate pictures created by the ‘Mouth and Foot’ artists.

 

The whole day was a fascinating insight into life with a disability but our overall message was that although everyone is diverse, we should also all experience equality in our lives and not be hindered to achieve our goals.  

British Values day

In year 5 we learnt about rules and laws. We discussed the difference between them and also looked at Civil and Criminal law. There was a lot of discussion about laws and we learnt about laws in different countries and how the laws in the UK have changed over time.  The Rule of Law is outlined as one of the values we have as British people. We discussed how some counties such as North Korea have very strict laws and how the people who live there are restricted in their freedom.

In the afternoon, we created our own towns where the main aim was to keep our townspeople safe and happy. We had to come up with at least 10 laws for our town which would achieve our aim.

 

Quotes from the day:

“I learn that laws are there to keep our whole country safe and rules are specific to certain people.”

“I have learnt that there are two different types of law (criminal and civil) and also learnt that we don’t hand people anymore.”

“I learnt that North Korea has really strict laws and they aren’t allowed to leave their country without permission.”

“I learnt that there are different types of courts such as Crown Court and Supreme Court.”

“I learn that we have laws in order to keep us safe.”

SMSC  (Social, moral, spiritual, cultural)

 

In Year 5, we have been discussing the hierarchical system of the Ancient Egyptians. We found out that the most important person in the society was the pharaoh who was seen as half god and half man. The lowest people in society were the slaves who were owned by the rich and made to do the work of the pharaoh. The children came discussed this type of system and came up with their own questions to ask and debate. Here are some of the questions they asked.

 

  • “Why did you have to marry within your class?”
  • “Why were slaves at the bottom?”
  • “Who invented the system?”
  • “How did the UK stop this type of system?”
  • “Why were only some people educated?”
  • “What if you didn’t have the skills for your class?”
  • “Could you change your class?” 

Tomb Raiders

 

Year 5 kicked off with a mysterious discovery in the depths of the desert. A peculiar water boy stormed into assembly and declared that they had found it! But what is it? Well, they had stumbled across the missing tomb of Tutankhamen.  The children flooded to the scene and had to crawl into the tomb’s passages to uncover artefacts and clues about the discovery. After excavating the area they concluded it was the pharaoh’s tomb and were able to look at the artefacts in more detail revealing the splendour of the tomb’s treasures.

 

Later on, the journey took another time hop and the children experienced the naming ceremony of Ancient Egyptian children. Each child was given a name which they will keep for the whole topic.

 

During the week, the learning didn’t stop and the children experienced life as poor and rich Egyptians as they made flatbread and biscuits. They also debated whether the social hierarchy within Ancient Egypt was fair and learnt about hieroglyphics and the Egyptian number system.

 

Look out for more exciting learning as we travel to our Fantastic Finish.

Fusion at the summer fair

 

Year 5 Dragon's Den Fantastic Finish 

 

On Saturday we had our Summer Fair. The week before, Year 5 worked extremely hard in order to make all of our products. We learnt how to be a production line and be efficient in the making process. Each person was assigned a role in the manufacture process and we managed to make 90 bath bombs, 65 glass bottles and nearly 200 bookmarks ready to sell. 

 

On the day we set up our stand and made sure it looked attractive to our customers. We were assigned shifts of 15 minutes on the stall and made sure we were confident sellers. We put to practice our skills learnt in the customer services and giving change lessons on Friday and soon had a queue of customers waiting. 

 

At 1pm we assessed the situation and were able to slash the prices and offer deals in order to sell all reminding stock and by 2pm it was all gone! 

 

Altogether we made an amazing profit of..... £130 which will go towards our new school mini bus! 

 

We've had an amazing learning journey and learnt a huge amount about business! Some of us were been using our new found entrepreneurial skills to work at the fair as we tried out all the stalls, games and activities which were happening. 

We all worked really hard throughout our topic and should all be really proud of what we achieved! :)

Diversity day!

 

During Diversity day, the children learnt about Transgender. Transgender means when someone believes they have been born into the wrong body and that their gender doesn’t match their body.

The children looked at what diversity means and discussed what makes someone your friend.

 

“A good friend looks after you when you need them.”

“Friends have things in common with you but are also different so that you have things to talk about.”

 

We discovered that gender had nothing to do with the friendships in the class and that we make friends due to personalities and hobbies.

 

We then watched a video about a boy called Leo who was born a girl but knew he always was a boy.  You can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0x_u2cs8DpI

 

We saw how Leo had overcome struggles in school and managed to change his name and passport to reflect his mind and show him as male and not female.

 

The children then wrote Tweets to Leo to share their feelings on his life story.

 

“@swimming4ever

Thank you Leo for sharing your life story. I am inspired and blown away by your bravery #inspirational #bravery #beyourself

 

@rainbowlollipops

Congratulations on your acceptance to get a new passport. Keep fighting for your rights and believing in yourself! #beyourself

 

@rugbymad

Thanks Leo for sharing your story! You have inspired me! Keep cheerful and be proud of who you are! #Transgender

 

@fiercegymnastics

We all congratulate you on your amazing achievement. You were brave and positive. I’m sure that you’ve helped many transgender people #beunique

 

@reptile

Congrats on your big step. You video almost made me cry! #Transgender

 

@X

I am happy for you and hope you have a good future! #sharing #Transgender

 

@Ilikepizza

Leo, you inspired me and I hope you grow up to be the man you want to be! #Transgender #beyourself

 

@Nnooo

When you opened that envelope you looked ready happy! Keep enjoying your life and do what you think is right! Congratulations Leo! #Congratulations 

 

 

The children then read the book ‘Be who you are’ and drew their own mirror of the things that make them them.

Quotes from the day:

 

“I have learnt how to except people for who they are and not if they are boys or girls”

 

“Be yourself! Be you! I think these words are very powerful because it’s good to believe in yourself!”

 

“I have learned that everyone is different and equal in their own diverse way and that we should treat people how they want to be treated.”

 

“I learned that it takes a lot to change gender and say you are transgender.”

 

“Today, I have learned that everyone can choose their gender and be themselves.”

Carnyorth 2015

 

Day 3

 

Today was was our last day. We started slightly later and were all awake by 7am! By 8 we were nearly all washed and had had breakfast. Then came the challenge of packing up...

 

We think we have everything that belongs to us but if you find extra items of clothing or are missing something please let Miss Wells know.

 

Then it was time to start out Mine Cluedo. In teams we were given clues of the location, weapon and suspect which would help us find the culprit. We set off on a long walk across the hills to the different mines where we eradicated innocent miners and also learnt about the mines. We even saw a working steam engine. Although we had the chance to stand and look down the great shafts in which the miners descended, we couldn't go into the mines as they are now all flooded. Amazingly, they stretch out under the sea by a mile and a quarter!

We continued our journey to the arsenic tunnels and there we found the culprit and then played man hunt against the adults in  the tunnels.

 

Finally, we headed back to the centre and returned home!

We have a had a super time and there will be many memories from the trip!!
