Welcome to Year 5!
For the past term we have been studying our Earth and beyond. We have had a great space day, launching rockets into space! Thank you to all parents and family members for supporting the children with today, their space outfits were all fantastic! Super scientists, NASA astronauts, stars and constellations all graced the corridors of Hatch Ride Primary School today.
As we continue the journey through our last summer term together, we ventured to the Living Rainforest! As we explored the exotic plants, the children also learned about amazing adaptations and sustainable living. The children really enjoyed the day!
Welcome to the summer term! We begin our new topic about the Rainforests of the World and our learning starts with the uniqueness of this environment, investigating the animal species and plant life that reside there (see below for our Kapok Tree display). Additionally, we had some exciting visitors this week who came into reinforce our electricity learning. Mr Barnett came in to share his work on wind turbines and the importance of renewable energy sources, ably assisted by Mr Maynard! The children were able to try on safety clothing and kit, experience travelling up a wind turbine through VR and make an efficient wind turbine trying to generate the highest voltage. It was a fantastic morning of experiential learning!
