Music Technology

Dawn Bullen 0 35

Year 5 had a fantastic addition to their curriculum on Tuesday, this week. Miss Levitt came into class to teach Music Technology to them. Bringing in a selection of iPads, the teacher showed the children the different sounds of various drums and percussion instruments then taught them how to sequence these to create their own musical genre. The class thoroughly enjoyed recording some funky sounds and cannot wait until next week's lesson! 

Year 5 Jorvik trip

Gary Child 0 183

Year 5 had a brilliant day today in a rather-soggy York when they visited the Jorvik centre. Upon arrival, we walked to the DIG centre and enjoyed an early lunch before learning all about the Viking battle tactics in a very raucous workshop! Several children held weapons that would have been used, including a sword and two types of axe and the whole class got to practise their 'war cries' and death stares as they advanced and retreated while carrying the fantastic Viking shields.

After all this, we walked to the Jorvik centre and climbed aboard the moving cars to see (and smell) the village life models. Such a brilliant day, despite the continuous rain!


Our curriculum afternoon

Some photographs from our curriculum afternoon, where the children (Y4) were introduced to the new topic 'World Kitchen'. They really enjoyed learning about where different fruits were grown in the world and how it was transported to England for us to enjoy. Later in the afternoon the children made fruit salad from a variety of fruit, grown in different parts of the world. At the end they really enjoyed tasting what they had created. 

Anglo-Saxon Day

Year 5 started the day off looking fabulous in their various costumes showing what they knew about how the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings were attired. Our first activities included finding out who these people were, where they came from and when they were around in history. Everybody could recount at least two facts by playtime! As the morning progressed, the children designed and made their own trusty shield that an Anglo-Saxon would take into battle. Can you see what media they used? Later, they learned about runes before deciphering then making up their own messages using the runes.
