Enquiry Overview: How are lives saved? Sustainable Development Goal 9- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

How are lives saved?
This term, Year 5 are going to delving into Sustainable Development Goal 9- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure with a focus on how lives can be saved through having a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Alongside this, we will be doing work based on the book 'Journey to Jo'burg' which is based on a true story about children living during the Apartheid. Please check our page for updates on our fabulous learning!

Photography - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts

In Week 8, we have become fantastic photographers! Firstly, we found out that photographers think very carefully about what to include when taking a photograph and that they can use three types of ground - foreground, midground and background. We analysed a range of photographs and worked out each type of ground before showing off our photography skills on the allotment! Finally, we analysed our own photographs and worked out each ground. 

Tower Building with Marshmallows and Spaghetti - Article 28: The Right to Education

In Week 7, we were set the challenge of building a tower with just marshmallows and spaghetti in Jigsaw. Whilst having lots of fun, we realised the importance of good teamwork and communication. Well done 5RO for building such fantastic structures! 

Researching & Presenting Our Findings - Article 13: Freedom of Expression

In Week 6, we had the exciting opportunity to use the Chromebooks and Google Classroom. At the start of the day, we recapped our enquiry learning including the circulatory system, seasons and food preparation and chose a topic to research further with our learning partners. Then, we created fabulous presentations of our learning and shared them with the class. We particularly enjoyed each other's fun facts, quizzes and even bingo games! 

Planting Crops in Different Seasons - Article 17: Access to Information

In Week 5, we have developed our knowledge of seasons and why we have them through watching videos and playing matching games. We have also explored what crops can be sown and harvested in each season. And with the help from Mr Evans, we have even planted chives and purslane which we will look after until they are ready to be harvested! 

Places of Worship - Article 14: Freedom of Thought and Religion

In Week 4, we have been learning about different places of worship. We started off by discussing how to show respect in a place of worship and came up with some fantastic ideas, as shown below! We are looking forward to learning more about Sikhism and their place of worship - a Gurdwara. 

Sporting Chance - Article 31: Right to Play 

In Week 3, we have had the most wonderful opportunity of developing our throwing skills with Sporting Chance. We can’t wait for our next session!

WOW! Class Party - Article 24: Right to Health

In Week 2, we kickstarted our new enquiry with a class party. After the party, we thought about the kinds of food that we had and what would happen to our health and bodies if we ate this food all of the time. We realised that we would become unhealthy and even unwell if we had unbalanced diets all of the time so we want to learn about healthy diets so we can keep ourselves in good shape as well as saving lives of others!
