Visit to Verulamium

 

As part of our project about the Romans, we visited the Verulamium Museum, Hypocaust and Amphitheatre.  It was a fun day and we learned lots about how the Romans lived in Britain.

 

Here are some pictures from our visit.

Happy New Year!

 

Here we are at the start of a new term, a new year and a new decade.  Work hard, have fun and, most of all, be the 'I' in KIND.

 

 

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” —Neil Gaiman

 

Christmas Production

 

December 2019 saw a fantastic performance by Years 5 and 6 of our Christmas production "Sleeping Beauty and the Ugly Truth".

 

Here is a selection of photographs and I'm sure you will agree Year 5 have lots of talented children.

 

5ML Assembly

We have been learning all about space this term.  We were excited to share what we had learned with you in our assembly.  Here are some pictures.  We hope you enjoy them.

Year 5 Visit to

Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium

 

Recently we visited the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium as part of our Space topic.  At the centre there were lots of science activities for us to try.  We also went to the planetarium where we went on a journey through space, visiting planets along the way.  We also learned where to look in the sky for Polaris - ask your child to explain/show you where it is.

 

 

BBC Music Day 2019

 

BBC Music Day is the UK wide annual celebration of the power of music to change lives, with over a thousand events across the UK.  

 

In 5ML, we discussed and listened to some of our favourite pieces of music. Three of our classmates also performed for us:

 

 

 

 

 

Our Rights

 

In 5JM we used our drama skills to learn about the Rights of Children. 

 

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to all children under the age of 18.   

 

We discussed the principles of the Convention (an international agreement, a contract between countries).  There are 45 Articles in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, four of which are seen as special.  They’re known as the “General Principles” and they help to interpret all the other articles and play a fundamental role in realising all the rights in the Convention for all children. They are:

 

  1. Non-discrimination (article 2)
  2. Best interest of the child (article 3)
  3. Right to life survival and development (article 6)
  4. Right to be heard (article 12)

The Solar System

 

Over the summer holidays the Year 5 children were tasked with building a model of the solar system.  Here are some of the fabulous creations that were completed by them.  I'm sure you will agree they are very talented.
