Jacco from Keele Observatory helped Year 5 to continue their work on their vehicle A Journey through Space. We saw some gigantic telescopes and learnt a lot more about different planets, black holes, stars and gravity.
Year 5 took part in the 'Create with Camerata' show alongside 12 other schools from Staffordshire. They have worked really hard this term, composing a song that links to their vehicle, and put on a fantastic performance at the Staffordshire Showground.
Spring 1 - Year 5 and Year 1 visited the National Space Centre. We took part in a planetarium show that took us on a journey through space, including a stop on Mars and Venus. We learnt about constellations, dressed up as astronauts and sat in a capsule. A day that was out of this world!
Year 5 have received an email from Cannock Chase Cycle Centre showing the cycle trail guides that they made for their Autumn vehicle outcome on display and being used by the general public! Well done Year 5!
“Thank you for sending over the children’s amazing trail guides. They have been on display on the shop counter all week. We have had a lot of customers comment on how good they are. Forestry England are just in the process of designing there new trail maps for the area so I will pass them on to them for inspiration!”
Year 5 visited Cannock Chase as part of their vehicle learning for this term. After meeting Jacqui from Forestry England who gave us a tour of some of the facilities, we walked the Fairoak Trail in preparation for creating our own bike trail guide on our return to school. Halfway round the trail we had a go at producing some Andy Goldsworthy art using the nature around us too.
Year 5 went on a residential visit to Chasewater. They had lots of fun getting involved in activities in the great outdoors and trying new things - including the chores!
