Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks I’d like the Year 5 children to be completing at home over the next week.



Research and write a biographical account about Walt Disney. Who was he? What did he do? How did he change society? You can write your information using pen/paper, word, excel, powerpoint – any method of your choice!


Art / Geography

Design your own theme park. Make symbols on your park map with a key so your customers can locate all the exciting rides. Remember to add lots of colour, shops, conveniences etc. to make it appealing for visitors!


D&T / Science

Using recycled materials around the house- construct your own log flume and carrier. This could be using toilet roll holders, plastic, cardboard, carrier bags masking tape etc. Your job is to test the different materials to see which would be best in water for carrying passengers.



Complete the PE lesson using the resources located on the Topic page.


ICT / Music

Create a piece of music that can be used for the entrance of your new theme park. This could be using objects around your house, music apps/websites for instrument sounds.



Watch the clip (found on the RE resources page), explore and discuss the powerpoint on Pentecost. Create an image- using pencil, pens, paints, collage materials etc. to represent the story of Pentecost. Think about the symbols used and what they represent. You could write about your image to explain the reasons behind the symbols and how this influences Catholics today.
