Malvern Trip

 

Year 5 had a wonderful trip to Malvern this half term, which was part of the Topic Curriculum comparing local areas.  The children really enjoyed the delightful scenery of Malvern walking around the tranquil town and then going to Malvern Hills.  Where they accomplished a very tiring journey walking up to the Beacon and enjoying the magnificent view from the top.  Everyone had fun including the teachers!

Science Investigations

We have been taking part in different science investigations in our TTG groups, the last few weeks. TTG2 looked at finding out if the amount of batteries (cells) effect the brightness of a bulb.  The children had a go at making a simple circuit and adding batteries. TTG1 were investigating how different temperatures effect the speed of dissolving salt.  In TTG3 they looked at if the size of your bicep effects how far you  can throw a javelin.  All three groups had fun taking part in these investigations and comparing the results with each other.

Topic

Ancient Greeks

 

This half term year 5 have been learning about the Ancient Greeks as part of their topic subject. This has been a very interesting topic both the children and staff have had some amazing lessons going back in history learning about the lives of the Ancient Greeks. Both year 5 classes worked hard in creating powerpoint presentations and delivered them to their classes.

Anti Bullying Sessions

Year 5 have been taking part in anti bullying workshops for the last few weeks. Both classes took part in three weekly sessions looking at different types of bullying. In session one the children explored what cyber bullying is , how it takes place  and the effects of this.  Session two the children looked at assertive behaviour, again exploring feelings from all sides e. g  how does the bully feel? how does the victim feel? The children worked in groups and acted out different scenarios. The last session was focussed on making a pledge to stand up to bullying children worked in groups working on scenarios on how to make a stand against bullying.

Science

This half term in year 5 the science topic has been forces, the children have been learning about different types of forces and how they work.  They also looked at gravity, friction and the effects of air resistance, by taking part in different investigations in their TTG groups.
