Year 5

What we’ve been up too…

Year 5 took part in their final gardening workshop where they combed the retted flax and spun it into fine thread using a spindle, ready for knitting with. Year five were lucky enough to have a fun Q&A session with a kilt maker, who will be using the Flax thread that Year 5 spun, to create a fabulous jumper for the flax man, who currently hangs in our school corridor.

Year 5 took an exciting trip to the Imperial War Museum to go back in time and experience what life would have been like as a child during the First World War. In groups, children completed research tasks to find out what life would have been like to live as an evacuee in 1939. Children then had the opportunity to apply what they had learnt in topic to complete tasks around the museum.

Year 5 took part in an exciting STEAM workshop where the 12 finalists were invited to UBS to compete against other schools. The children were expected to combine their creative talents with their science knowledge and design. They were given four tasks; A chair using balloons, that could carry a child as well as an adult, paper airplane, the tallest aircraft and to conclude the event an advert. Year 5 did a fantastic job working as a team and managed to come in 2nd place out of the 9 teams.
