Welcome to Year 5 - Renoir Class

28th June 2023

On Wednesday 28th June, Years 4 and 5 were lucky enough to visit Writtle University College for the annual Food and Farming event. We joined approximately 4,500 other children from a range of school across Essex.

We had time during the day in different areas of the event, with the highlights being the livestock, (we could stroke the animals), the food tent where we tried new foods, and the crops area making natural bookmarks.

We had also taken a scarecrow to enter in the Scarecrow Competition, based on His Majesty the King’s Coronation. Our scarecrow had a sceptre spade, an orb teapot, a corgi at his feet, and royal robes with the Red Arrows and smoke. We listened to the judging with baited-breath and cheered when we heard we’d won second place! We were presented with a certificate, rosette, and vouchers for the school to spend in our nature garden.

We were very proud of all the children, who were a credit to our school and behaved impeccably.

Later in June, children in Years 4 and 5 are going to the Essex Food and Farming Day at Writtle College. As part of the preparations, we have been asked to enter a competition to create a scarecrow with a Royal Coronation theme. The children have worked as one enormous class to design a scarecrow and then create it out of a range of recyclable materials. We had a fantastic day working in groups to create our finished Royal Scarecrow, complete with all commonwealth flags, a shovel sceptre, an orb teapot, the Red Arrows display team and a Corgi!

Year 5 had great fun going nose to nose with the animals at Mell Farm. 

1st March 2023

We visited Colchester Zoo to find out more about the Rainforest and what threatens it.

Rainforests are amazing, but they are in danger

The session started with an introduction to the features of the rainforest, its plants, animals and climate. The location of the major rainforests were examined with reference to country and continent names. Amazing, and unique animals living there were discussed including the use of biofacts to highlight their adaptations.

Threats to the rainforests, with specific threats to rainforest animals – the pet trade and hunting for clothing, souvenirs and medicine. We then had the opportunity to get up close to real confiscated items from this wildlife trade. Next, habitat loss as a threat to the entire rainforest was explored. The session ended with explanations of what we can do the help the rainforest and counteract these threats.

We had a brilliant topic day that focused on the Acient Maya. We explored the different masks they wore and the different event they were used for. During the day we designed, made and evaluated our masks. It was a fantastic day.
