A Watery Week for Year 5

The Year 5 children managed to fit in not one but two trips out of school last week!

The first was to the Yorkshire Water Treatment Works at Headingley. The classes learnt about all the ‘baddies’ in water and the process undertaken at the Works to clean them out.

Closer to home, the children also took a trip down to the canal to learn about the history of a boat called ‘The Kennet‘ that is celebrating its 70th birthday this year. Volunteers told us all about how the boat was made, the history of the canal, locks and many other things. The highlight for most was seeing the cabin where the boat workers slept and ate – it was rather snug!

Y5 Industrial Museum Trip

The Year 5 children enjoyed a fascinating trip to Bradford Industrial Museum today. To fit with Topic learning, they all experienced a session in a Victorian Schoolroom where they were taught the 3 ‘R’s, sang, recited poetry and learnt facts about an orange.
It was great to see the children engage with their learning so well, not least due to the wonderful costumes they came in! We hope that you remember this experience for a long time to come.

Victorian School

The Year 5 children have all travelled back in time this week to experience life in an authentic Victorian schoolroom.
Our trip to the Bradford Industrial Museum gave everyone the chance to use chalk slates, sit in rows on benches, use ink dip pens and recite poetry, songs and times tables.
We were really pleased that the children used their prior learning from their topic work this year to impress the School Master and that they followed the strict rules of the Victorian classroom so wonderfully.
Everyone had a special Victorian name for the day and dressed up brilliantly in Victorian clothing!

Year 5 go to the Water Works

The Year 5 classes have been visiting the local Water Works as part of our current topic work. In Headingley, we learnt how water is cleaned before it gets to our taps, then in Esholt we saw what happens to the water (and other things!) once it goes down the plughole. The helpful team at Yorkshire Water gave us lots of information and activities, answered all our questions and gave us tours of the sites. We all enjoyed wearing the hard hats and hi-visibility jackets!

Today was 5P’s turn, some of the highlights are below.
