Reading and Camping in the Rain!

Whatever the weather, we love reading outdoors at Thomas Buxton Primary! This week, every child in Years 3 and 4 received a book that they had chosen from the National Literacy Trust. To celebrate this, children took part in story telling – lead by Year 5- in the Secret Garden; played campsite games and experienced some of the Victorian games that Children in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book, ‘The Secret Garden’ might have played. Enjoy your new books!

Interfaith Week in Year 5

We enjoyed a fascinating Interfaith Week in year 5 this year.  We were focused on Humanism and Christianity – we compared and contrasted both faiths and considered their perspectives regarding different topics.  We visited Christchurch Spitalfields to have a hands-on experience of Christianity – we learnt about the stories behind stained glass windows, what happens at an altar, and what it means to be baptised.

We were visited by a humanist who outlined what the belief contained and how they lived their lives using a ‘moral code’.

We spent time discussing moral arguments and situations.  We also spent time discussing the need for cohesion and understanding; we asked, “What does ‘community’ mean to us?”

We had so many questions that were still unanswered! We used a fantastic resource called ‘e-mail a believer’ to ask a Christian and a Humanist our questions.  We asked them questions about specific festivals that they celebrate, the parts of their religion that they enjoy the most and what their religion means to them.

We look forward to the next Interfaith Week!

 

Shakespeare Week – Year 5

It’s Shakespeare week at Thomas Buxton and Year 5 have been studying Macbeth – Shakespeare’s great tragedy. This week has been focused on debating and performance skills. In class we have been debating key ideas in the text using ABCDebate (agree, build, challenge, delve deeper). This lesson we practised responding to other’s points by delving deeper e.g asking for evidence or clarification.

Year 5 also took part in a performance workshop where they learnt how to act and developed their own interpretation of the play using their performance skills. It ended in a gruesome battle!

Here are some photos of the children’s work.

Science in year 5…

This half term, we have been studying materials and their properties.  As classes, we decided what we wanted to investigate!  We asked ourselves, which solutions did we want to create to test our theories?  We learnt that some materials took longer dissolve than others – some didn’t dissolve at all!  We timed our experiment and presented our data in a graph.
