5M’s trip to Manchester Museum

Year 5 took a trip to Manchester Museum where we learnt how to become creative curators! We learnt about how museums group animals and we practised our curative skills – looking, connecting and discussing.
We enjoyed looking at some of the taxidermy animals up close, learning about how it is done and had a go at creating our own museum! Then we got to explore the museum. There was lots of interesting information in the vivarium. They had live poison dart frogs and plenty of information about our topic – The Rainforest!
Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short and got caught in the rain on the way back though, but despite the weather, we had the best day!

Year 2M We Will Remember.

The children enjoyed making their poppy wreath for our classroom door and learning all about being respectful. Edward very kindly brought in his Great Grandad’s medals. The children had lots of questions for Edward about his paratrooper grandad. What an excellent primary source of information Edward, thank you for sharing!

5M Poppy Wreath

We have been learning about Remembrance Day in 5M and the significance of the poppy as the symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future. We have created a poppy wreath with special messages to those who have lost their lives fighting for our future.
