Amazing computing in Year 5

 

In computing, Year 5 have been learning about ‘if’ and ‘else’ statements. Using these, the children created an algorithm on the BBC Micro:bit for a rock, paper, scissors game. Then, children had great fun challenging each other to a game.

What is it like to be a refugee?

What is it like to be a refugee?

Yesterday, Miss Folland from CAFOD visited our school and organised a role play for the children from Year 5 and Year 6. The children were able to experience what it was like to be a refugee by having to fill a small bag, choosing only important items. Then, they went on an imaginary journey, where some of their belongs became damaged, lost or were even taken from them. This experience has allowed the children to realise just how lucky we are.

Year 5 Glockenspiel and Recorder Ensemble

During music this week, Year 5 have been learning to play ‘Make You Feel my Love’ by Adele. The children were split into pairs and given a glockenspiel and a recorder, one partner took the part of the glockenspiel whilst the other took the part of the recorder. Then, working together the pairs learnt each part by splitting the piece into smaller sections. After this, the children practiced each section together. Finally, all of the pieces came together and the children performed as an ensemble.
