Year 5's trip to the Deep
Year 5 went on an educational visit to the Deep in Hull, because of all the Film Literacy work linked to the common clown Anemonefish. It was the perfect place to visit and gather lots of essential knowledge and to see how the fish live in the sea. Whilst Year 5 were visiting the aquarium, special conservationists were there talking about the 'saw fish' which has a conservation status of either endangered or critically endangered depending on their breed. It was great to see the 'Green saw fish' at the Deep and we are hoping to find out more about them before the end of the year.
We had such a fantastic time in the different zones and watching the penguins being fed in the Kingdom of Ice was a particularly special moment, it certainly wasn't an average Wednesday. We all had a great day!
Year 5 trip to National Media Museum
The children watched a film called Big this was all about engineering and structures and how they take their lead from nature. The children also took part in tow workshops. In the first they looked at reptiles by studying these animals it has helped us to develop useful day to day items. The second was on insects and by studying these animals and how they adapt to there surroundings has helped us to develop things such as camouflage amongst others. The children heard their voices echo through a big tube, and got lost in a hall of mirrors. They had fun finding answers as they explored light and sound.
Year 5A & 5B had a fantastic time at Bagshaw museum on Wednesday and enjoyed lots of Ancient Egyptian experiences including embalming a mummy, creating a cartouche and handling objects that were over 3,000 years old. Our children were a credit to the school and displayed exemplary behaviour at all times. Well done Year 5!
