Class 4 Curriculum Overview
Activities, Visits & Trips 2018-19
We had a great time this morning when the year 5’s visited Willington Methodist Church for the Easter Journey.
Today our year 5 children spent the day at Parkside. We had an RE lesson, where we made our own creation stories, did experiments with flames in a chemistry lesson and wrote our own newspaper reports in a Literacy lesson.
This morning we had a visit from the NSPCC. We had an assembly followed by a class workshop. We talked about what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour, how to stay safe and what we should do if we’re ever worried or concerned by anything.
This afternoon we have had a Parliament afternoon. We talked about what Parliament is and the importance of Parliament in the UK. We also focused on the 100 year anniversary of woman being granted equal rights to vote (Vote 100). We watched videos, created our own equal rights posters and completed fact files about Emmeline Pankhurst from the Suffragettes.
We had a great day on our trip to the Safer Futures event in Newton Aycliffe. We took part in six different workshops which included, the fire and rescue services, the NHS, the RNLI, Northern Powergrid, Durham Police and Durham County Council looking at road safety.
As part of our anti-bullying day, we enjoyed playing a game linked to being kind to others. As well as creating a poster to discuss what respect means to us, we also designed our own anti-bullying superhero. We all had a great day!
We had a brilliant time dressing up for our Halloween disco. We played lots of different games and had a ‘best dressed’ competition.
Year 5 children have had a fantastic time at Parkside. We enjoyed an English, Maths and Food Technology lesson. We even decorated our own Halloween cakes and biscuits – we hope you enjoy eating them tonight!
Children in ‘Science Club’ have had a lovely time making our own slime.
Class 4 enjoyed a visit from the Parliament Education Service. We have enjoyed learning about how the voting system has changed over the years and how a law is passed. We also looked at a range of possible laws and decided if they were fair.
We are so proud of the children who are reading at home every day as part of our new Accelerated Reader initiative. Over the weeks, the children’s scores on the quizzes are improving so much and we are really pleased with the progress they are making. A huge well done!
