Year 5's Titanic Immersive Day-A huge success!!
Pupils busy preparing for the Titanic Exhibition Day
Pupils have worked co-operatively with their peers today preparing for their Titanic Exhibition next Thursday. We look forward to welcoming as many friends and family as possible. The children are really looking forward to sharing their experiences with you. We hope you can make it.
Pupils have thoroughly enjoyed being creative and showing their artistic skills this month. They have chosen an angle of the Titanic and carefully drawn detailed drawings. They then used four different mediums to finish their work in the style of 1960's 'Pop Art'.
Check out the stunning display below, great work everyone.
Science Investigation-Pupils have been experimenting with icebergs this week and looking at refraction> Did you know that whatever the size of an iceberg only 10% of it is visible on the waters surface?
Well as year 5 pupils engaged further in the subject of Titanic they use small sized icebergs of their own to explore what happened to light when it hit an object that is denser than air! Take a look at what they observed.
Titanic Immersive Day 15th January 2018
Year 5 had an incredible day today participating in their Titanic immersive day. With many dressing in costume the pupils prepared a variety of table arrangements and decorations, designed and created menus for the Captains dinner and learned and performed a waltz as they danced at the Captain's ball. The afternoon was then enjoyed taking part in the Captain's dinner with snacks and refreshments and then finished with the pupils collating all of their evidence and fun times from throughout the day to create their own presentations using a range of ICT apps and skills.
Year 5 pupils have been thoroughly engaged since they returned to school to start the term in our new topic of The Titanic. With many bringing in a wealth of knowledge from their holiday research they have enjoyed further developing their historical understanding through a range of fun activities. They have app;lied their numeracy skills to recall the size of the Titanic and have used their ICT skills to create a database of the passengers who actually boarded the ship back in 1912.
The excitement continues next week when the pupils are looking forward to their immersive day on Monday where they will relive what it was like to be a passenger on board the Titanic.
