Year 5

The 18th March was the final instalment of the mini-police, where children learned about the role of the police force and how the can be more productive citizens. They were all awarded certificates for taking part and performing a community service.

On the 21st of March, year five went to London for the day to visit Bevis Marks Synagogue (the oldest one in the UK). Mr Bitton, who lead the visit, was extremely impressed with the knowledge and behaviour of all the children. they had an exciting day using public transport and seeing the sites of the city.

The Friday before Mothering Sunday was children inviting their mother to school day. Both classes had a mystery challenge involving grammar skills where the children demonstrated the high level of understanding required for year 5.

This week, a selection of Year 5 children have been completing their Bike-ability course whilst all of the year have been writing cinquin poems about fire.

Student Reflections

“Overall, the project has been interesting and fun. I loved it!”

“I want to visit the moon like Neil Armstrong. He said ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’”

“My favourite part was when I showed the Mayor of the borough of Broxbourne different artefacts because I think that it’s a great experience to show someone very important around the museum.”

Teacher reflections

“This project has linked well with our focus on developing oracy. Throughout the project I have seen and heard children articulating their ideas more confidently. The children who shared their diaries at the exhibition were both audible and clear”

Exhibition Responses

““It’s brilliant. The children who read their diaries read so clearly and knew so much about the moon landing”

““They know more then me and I was alive then!”
