Multi-cultural week in Y5

Multi-cultural week in Y5

20th October 2016

As part of multi-cultural week and the express stage for our topic ‘Stargazers’, we invited parents into school to help build our rockets that we designed during our DT lessons. Using recycled items and objects from home, Y5 set about building rockets adding details such as orbiters, rocket thrusters and fuel tanks. The main aim was that we could build a rocket to transport us to the ISS. For multi-cultural week, we have looked at the different cultures on board the ISS and how the astronauts need to get along with each other carrying out important experiments and investigations. We also looked at how this linked to our rights and the articles we have in school.

Y5/6 Tag Rugby Competition

Braving the cold autumn weather on Thursday 13th October, a group of Y5 children participated in the Middlesbrough Schools Tag Rugby Competition at Middlesbrough College. Having been learning about tag rugby during PE lessons with Mr Johnston, our Thorntree superstars did themselves, their school and their teachers proud by demonstrating the skills they had learned in a competitive environment.
