SPRING TERM 2018
Last term our enquiry question was 'What is the difference between surviving and living?'. This was a geography based topic, with a focus on refugees. Some wonderful work was produced, culminating in the fantastic showcase day in which children were able to share the knowledge and skills they had learnt over the term with adults.
As part of our curriculum topic on refugees, Y5 are hoping to create a refugee camp in the courtyard attached to the classroom. During the week commencing 12 March, children will be given the opportunity to work in small groups with a builder who has kindly volunteered to come into school to help with this project. We hope to be able to share this with you during the Showcase afternoon on 21st March.
In this respect, if you have any spare materials that might help with this, we would be most grateful.
Large pieces of wood, chipboard etc.
Tent frames and canvases
Please bring these into school and pass them to a member of the Y5 team.
Eyam Museum display
The work which the children did as part of the Great Plague topic will be on display in Eyam Museum during February half term. It can then be seen again when the Museum re-opens for the summer season during the Easter holidays.
We are delighted that the beautiful work which the children did is being shared and celebrated with a wider audience in this way.
Last term, as part of our topic on the Great Plague, we studied the story 'Children of Winter' by Berlie Doherty. We enjoyed the story so much that we wrote letters to Berlie Doherty, to thank her for writing it and explaining why we had enjoyed it so much.
This week, we were delighted to receive this lovely letter back from her, which cheered her up while she was recovering from flu! She says she will mention the letters on her next newsletter, which appears on her website www.berlie.doherty.com. Also on the website is a competition to win her new story 'The Girl who saw Lions'. Why not have a go?
Autumn Term 2017
Our enquiry question last term was 'Do our choices really matter?' This was a history topic based on The Great Plague of 1665 - 1666. Look at our wonderful work, which we are delighted to say will shortly be on display in the museum of the plague village in Eyam, Derbyshire.
