Welcome to Year Five
Sharing our learning with the WHOLE world!
Wow! What a residential trip! Y5 absolutely loved their time at iCamp and I'm so proud of how they behaved and approached all the activities with such a great attitude - well done everyone! :-)
Day 1 ended with our camp fire - cooking/burning marshmallows and then the ice cream challenge :-)
Day 2 was AMAZING! We went to Elephant Haven and learnt about why riding is bad for the elephants. We then made rice balls and fed the herd. Next it was time to walk with Ploy to the river to let her play in the water. Elephant Haven was in the movie Love & Bananas - go watch!
After lunch we did crafts, badminton, archery, gaga ball (Nadia was champion - Lady Gaga!). Then it was time for more pool fun, dinner and movie night - what a great day!!!
In English lessons recently we've been studying the narrative poem, 'The Jabberwocky'. We split into groups and learnt the poem and created our own group performances - you can watch them below!
In this afternoon's topic lesson, the class worked in groups to manage a disaster emergency! They had to make crucial decisions to save the lives of people on the Carribean island of Montserrat, after a huge volcano erupted! Important information about the disaster was put onto a map of the island, and then the teams had to divide the island into 'Safe' zones and 'No-go' zones. The teams worked fantastically well and made some great choices - well done, everyone!
Today's topic lesson involved us modelling the different type of tectonic plate boundaries using crackers and jelly - take a look!
