Year 5 and 6

Mayan Workshop

The children in years 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed the Maya workshop provided by Mexicolore on Friday 14th January. They were immediately immersed into the Maya lifestyle as they entered the hall filled with Maya music and artefacts. The children learnt about the Maya culture, calendar, civilisation and much, much more! The children (and staff) especially enjoyed the Maya chant where the students had the opportunity to play Maya drums, chant and/or be in the procession. Years 5 and 6 thank Ian at Mexicolore for a fantastic morning!

 

Year 5 and 6 visit The Winchester Science Centre

The three classes in Upper Key Stage 2 had a FABULOUS time at Winchester Science Centre. For their first topic of the year, in class the children have been learning about Space and have built on their (already excellent) knowledge. Included in the trip was a brilliant workshop where everyone learnt about light in Space with some hands-on experiments. The children explored the Space exhibition as well as the exhibitions related to forces, and light and sound.

It was the first day of the year that the centre had been open to schools and the childrens' excellent behaviour was commended by the staff at the Science Centre!

 

Year 5 visit Stone Farm

The children in Year 5 visited Stone Farm in Devon during a sunny week in March and had a fabulous time visiting The National Marine Aquarium, Kents Cavern and The Eden Project during their stay. They helped out on the farm in the mornings and evenings feeding the animals and met some birds of prey in the barn.

 

Visit to Ufton Court

To support the work in their Tudor topic this term, the children in year 5 and 6 visited Ufton Court near Reading. Ufton Court is an Elizabethan manor house and as well as looking at the architecture of the period the children also tried some Tudor Dancing and looked at a variety of artefacts from the period.

Mayan Workshop

To launch their topic for Spring term the children in Year 5 and 6 enjoyed an entertaining morning learning all about the Mayans.

They dressed up, joined in with traditional chants and played the Mayan Ball Game. They also learnt about the Mayan Gods and the four different worlds that featured in the Mayan culture.

Year 5 and 6 Visit Winchester Science Centre

The children in Year 5 and 6 visited the Winchester Science Centre on October 5th during their Space Week to support their current topic. They had the opportunity to explore several space stations in addition to watching a presentation in the planetarium.
