Year 5 Beamish Visit Summer Term To Look Forward to. History Investigative Workshop carried out:
Beamish Year 5 Summer Visit - Pupils carry out a mining investigation to link with our history topic on County Durham. Pupils are excited to visit the mines and discover life as a miner. In fact they are relieved they can return to school rather than work the mines like Victorian pupils!
The Beamish Visit is a real highlight of the year for Class 5 and we all dress up to match the historic period we are studying and act out roles for the day.
Class 5 pupils can take part in small group brass lessons provided by Durham Music Service.
Year 5 took part in a Creative Drama Workshop delivered by a lively drama expert (Stephen) and focusing on the theme of water at the start of the year.
This engaging learning built on previous teaching from Year 4 on the water cycle. It also promoted conserving water and looked at environmental issues covered in our PHSCE curriculum.
Year 5 Team !
Current Class 5 - team building in creative drama lessons.
Enjoyment through learning!
The Highwayman is used to inspire musical compositions. Pupils work in collaborative groups.
Team work is a big element in Year 5 and we use our building learning power skills to achieve this across the curriculum.
Watch Planet Earth on BBC i Player to appreciate the world we live in!
Here is an example of a Year 5 child's creative writing - factional writing:
Have you ever wanted to find a unicorn?
Become famous and track down some of the most dangerous beasts. One of the most extra ordinary unicorns is The Dark Rider. However are you up for the test?
Would you be able to recognise a Dark Rider if you saw one? Unsurprisingly they are like like most unicorns with a long sleek, muscular body, a long sharp horn and perceptive eyesight. Amazingly, they are dark cloak black colour with swirling grey misty patterns all over their body.
