Year 5 Topic Launch Day – Frozen Kingdom!

Year5 TopicLaunch (Phone)On Tuesday, Year 5 enjoyed a day of discovery as they were introduced to their new topic ‘Frozen Kingdom’. The day began with a large block of ice as their first clue. They discussed what they knew about different states of matter and how they can be changed. Everyone predicted how long it would take the ice to melt, with predictions ranging from 30 minutes to 24 hours! We checked on the ice at various points to see who was the closest. The day continued with an observation task, based on our key text, Shackleton’s Journey, and then the examination of a suitcase of items. We considered who might have worn/used them and why, and tried to draw a link between them. In the afternoon, the children took part in a word search competition of our new topic vocabulary and got creative making 3D snowflakes. Our milk carton igloo is also beginning to take shape and will continue to be built throughout the topic. The children all engaged well with the activities and we are all excited to learn more about our new topic.
