Year 5 Visit to Boston Park
Last Tuesday, Year 5 went to Boston Park farm as part of our migration topic and were really excited. At the farm, the children were separated into four smaller groups and did a rotation of four different activities. Within these activities, the children got the chance to experience a trailer ride with a tractor, where the worker showed us the crops that were currently being grown relating this to how much of our lunch comes from a farm, either in the UK or across the world. We went on a nature walk, where we had to collect a selection of activities and answer wildlife related questions. The children got the opportunity to hold, stroke and feed a small selection of the baby animals on the farm, looking at which country some of the animals are native too. Finally, we made a collage using different seeds from around the world, learning where this came from. Some of the children were daring enough to attempt eating a raw pumpkin seed too, however some immediately regretted this!

As part of their topic this term ‘Time Traveller’, the children in Year 5 invited their grandparents into school to share photos and memories from when they were younger. The children and grandparents had a great afternoon sharing stories.
Comments from the grandparents:
‘I have enjoyed meeting the children, answering their questions and showing all my photos to them. The coffee was good too!’
‘What a wonderful experience talking to such interesting children, I really enjoyed the day.’
‘An excellent project! Glad I could pass on some of the things that happened when I was younger. All the kids were brilliant and asked good questions.’
‘I have enjoyed this afternoon, the children asked some really good questions and the surprise on their faces at some of the answers was priceless (I think they enjoyed it too).’
As part of their theme work ‘Scream Machine’, Year 5 visited Flamingo Land. First of all they took part in a workshop where they learnt about the forces and working mechanisms of some of the rides. After the workshop the children were able to test their nerve by riding some of the adrenaline-fuelled rides or visiting the zoo and conservation area for a quieter option. Everybody had a great time and arrived back exhausted – a great end to their learning about forces and mechanisms.

Through the decades theme day. Can you guess which decade we represent?
The children in Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed their theme work linked to World War One ‘Fallen Fields’. To celebrate the work they have produced they invited parents into school to take a look at some of their hard work including propaganda posters, diary writing, artwork, songs and also home learning.
