Tatton Park - Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
On Tuesday 21st May and Wednesday 22nd May 2019, Year 5 were lucky enough to explore the turbulent world of the Anglo Saxons and Vikings in 10th Century AD in a hands-on workshop at Tatton Park. They arrived at the settlement just after a Viking raid had taken place and saw the effects it had on the Anglo Saxon community.
The Tatton Park historical characters helped Year 5 examine what life was like for these two groups of people; considering home life, religion, work, battle, trade, food, language and geography. They took part in: shelter building, outdoor fires, thumb pot making, deer walk and weapons activities.
"Best day ever," was heard from many.
Reddish Vale - Food Technology
On Tuesday 5th February 2019, we had the opportunity to take part in a food technology practical session at Reddish Vale, where we made scones. We measured out our ingredients and mixed them together using our fingertips. We then had an option of making sweet or savoury scones. For the sweet scones, we added: sugar, cherries, mixed fruit and raisins. For the savoury scones, we added cheese. At the end, we were then responsible to tidy up, which, for some of us, was quite a challenge. We had a fantastic experience and really enjoyed eating up all of our lovely tasting scones.
As part of our Earth and Space topic, we went to Jodrell Bank to see the world famous Lovell telescope, explore the surrounding interactive galleries and speak to the expert staff. We were also lucky enough to experience two inspiring, curriculum-linked interactive workshops.
Inflatable planetarium workshop
We had the opportunity to explore the current night sky; view the seasonal constellations as imagined by the Ancient Greeks; and explore the visible planets.
Solar System Science
In this hands-on and engaging workshop, we complete a series of experiments which explored a variety of science concepts, each linked to the Solar System. We were developing our investigation skills by: exploring the strength of gravity on different planets; investigating the brightness of sunlight throughout the Solar System; discovering how craters are formed; and performing a series of tests to identify a real meteorite!
