Welcome to our Spring Term!
In Year 5 we have been working hard on a new range of topics for our Spring term learning. We have been investigating the lifecycles of living things and had Rasher visit us! On his visit we learnt about the different cuts of meat you can get from a pig and then made sausages to cook over our campfire! A delicious afternoon was had by all!
Also, we have been learning about the natural resources of our planet, how they are distributed and how food makes it from around the world onto our plate. Part of this learning involved a trip to the Waitrose depot where we investigated food transport, roles in the depot, food miles and food waste. Some of us even made donations to the Food Bank after our trip!
We continue to learn about the unfair distribution of natural resources around the world and the types of communities this impacts as well as ways in which to we can help to improve life for everyone.
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!
