Children's University
On Tuesday 3rd May, Year 5 had the amazing opportunity to spend the day finding out what it is like to be a university  student as part of the Children’s University programme. We explored the Wolverhampton campus and saw different lecture rooms, sport facilities, the canteen and the student’s union. 

 

We took part in two different activities throughout the day. We had a Lego workshop where we found out about a range of different university buildings such as academic buildings, the library, the sport centre, the student’s union and halls of residence. We then recreated these buildings using Lego to create a Lego University. 

 

  

 

  

 

We then completed a STEM activity all about virus and diseases. We learnt about the different ways in which viruses and diseases spread and what we can do to prevent them from spreading. We looked at how germs can easily spread through the use of touch and talked about the importance of washing hands frequently and thoroughly. 

 

  

 

 

 

We all had a fantastic day and it sparked a lot of inspiration and aspiration for our future.

 

 

Easter

Year 5 made some lovely Easter cards for their families this week.
Take a look at some of them below!

On Thursday 7th April, Year 5 had a very special visitor who taught us loads of interesting, exciting and fun information all about the Ancient Greeks to round up our history topic. We took part in an interactive Greek myth and solved challenging puzzles in groups.

Science Week 2022
Monday 14th March - Friday 18th March

For our topic during Science Week, Year 5 looked at how human population growth over recent years has caused a rise in climate change. We discussed the effects of temperatures heating up and sea levels beginning to rise which ultimately threaten low-lying areas and therefore we have seen an increase in flooding over recent years. We explored which material would create the best type of flooring to protect against flooding. We completed a range of experiments and activities throughout the week to try to answer our key question and to help us to design our own type of flooring.

To celebrate 25 years of World Book Day, we took part in a scavenger hunt where we were set a challenge to find 25 book covers which were hidden in the playground.

 

  

 

Every class in the school looked at the book 'Mirror' by Jeannie Baker which is a two in one picture book showing a parallel day in the life of two families: one in a Western city of Sydney, Australia and one in a North African village. It highlights the similarities and differences of these cultures and lifestyles.

Year 5 took part in a quiz which got them to think about the landmarks, money, food, clothes and flags of these two countries. We then got creative and collaged the two flags.

 

We then finished the day with a certificate for the most creative costume!
