Year 5 Class - 5JE - Summer - 2017 - 2018
The Demon Headmaster
Children explored the structure of short stories and modal verbs and dialogue. Children wrote a drama based on one they have heard and then a new story in the Gillian Cross style.
Collective Worship Assembly
Year 5 celebrated Pentecost by delivering a Collective Worship Assembly to parents. They told the story of how the Holy Spirit can share the mission to spread the Gospel message. The acted out the feelings of the Disciples after the crucifixion of Jesus. Without the warmth of Jesus’ presence among them, the Disciples felt stranded and clueless. When Jesus had walked and talked with them, their hearts had burned within them; but now there was a death-like stillness and silence within them, which chilled their hearts and froze their power to act. Then on that Pentecost morning, everything changed. The friends of Jesus knew all would be well.
Tim Peak Exhibition at Manchester Science and Industry Museum
Year 5 had a fantastic opportunity to visit the Manchester Science and Industry Museum. Children were excited to work in teams and use interactive resources to learn in an engaging and exciting environment. The children were also grouped together to solve the crime of the explosion in the milk warehouse. This workshop encouraged the children to look carefully at the evidence and find the key ingredients that make a loud and colourful explosion. Other opportunities included the development of steam trains and how the Industrial Revolution has impacted on how we live today. Finally, the children had a one in a lifetime opportunity to see the Soyz Captule that Time Peak used to land on earth after visiting the International Space Station in 2016. They even had a chance to see the spacesuit he wore whilst on this epic journey into Outer Space. Wow!
