Learning Journey with photographs

Thursday 30th June - Fabulous Finish

On Thursday 30th June, Year Five had the party for the Greenhall Nursery children. After a month of preparing where they had to work within a budget and where they organised themselves into different groups with different responsibilities, they were finally ready to receive their guests! They decorated the hall and had party bags ready to give to the children. They also had food prepared by the food committee group. The party was amazing and the children from both schools really enjoyed themselves. They finished by singing heads, shoulders, knees and toes and by high fiving the children as they left! Thank you to the children and staff of Greenhall Nursery who came and a massive well done to Year Five. Myself and Mr Wild are very proud of you!

Monday 20th June - Open Door At Saint Mary's Church

On Monday 20th June, Year Five went to Saint Mary's Church to take part in a range of activities. They were given a tour of the church and then split into smaller groups to complete different activities such as bell ringing, banner making, shield design and sewing. The children had a brilliant day and were polite and enthusiastic during the activities. Well done Year Five! Please see the photographs below.

Thursday 9th June 2016 - Parent Project

Year Five spent the afternoon creating their dream catchers inspired by our 'I have a Dream' topic. The children had already designed their dream catchers and set to work eagerly ready to create theirs. They worked creatively and used all the resources that were available to them. Well done Year Five. Your dream catchers look amazing. Thank you to the parents and grandparents that came and supported Year Five and thank you to Mr Wild for his support this afternoon. Please look at the photographs below.

The children have been designing and creating a parachute in small groups that they think will travel the slowest from a specific height. They decided on their own resources and design before creating it. They then tested each parachute to see which was the slowest and then considered why. Year Five worked well and created some fantastic parachutes. Please look at the photographs.

The children have taken on the role today of the Red Coats in our poem, The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. They pretended that they were at a campfire and they retold the story of the Red Coats. They were brilliant with their interpretation of the Red Coats and told the story showing a range of emotions. Well done Year Five!

Year Five spent part of this morning visiting the Gurdwara, the Sikh temple in Stafford. They learnt about the Sikh religion as well as what happens in a Gurdwara. Year Five were brilliant this morning and very respectful. They listened carefully and asked questions. Well done Year Five.

Friday 13th May 2016

Year Five have written some brilliant poems based on the poem The Highwayman. They also practised and then performed them to the class using expression. Please see the photographs below of the children performing their poems to each other. Well done Year Five!

Highwayman Poems

Friday 29th April

Congratulations Year Five! We are class of the week! A huge well done!

We have been chosen because of our amazing writing based on the poem The Highwayman and also the fact that there was a Year Five representative in the Parkside's Got Talent competition that came either first, second or third.


Also just a reminder that on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, the children will be visiting Greenhall Nursery to meet and interact with the children. They will go in two smaller groups on one morning of either of those days. They will need to be school uniform and wearing appropriate shoes with a coat. The children are looking forward to this.

Thank you again for your co-operation.

Launch Day - Wednesday 20th April

Year Five have been learning about Martin Luther King as the introduction to our Topic, 'I have A Dream. ' They have learnt about his life and watched part of his I have a dream speech. They then considered issues that they feel strongly about before writing their own I have a dream speech.

On Wednesday 20th April, Year Five then presented their I have a dream speeches to each other. They were expressive in their delivery and supported each other in this activity. Well done Year Five. You were very impressive!
