Year 5 Explorer Day

The Year 5 team are very excited to invite the children of Year 5 to participate in an Explorer Day on Friday 11th October.

Children are invited to dress according to the location they would like to explore. They will need to think carefully about their chosen “expedition” and why they would like to explore it. Our day will feature speaking and listening opportunities, real life maths and team building skills, ready to explore!

*Our AIMS for the day are to show the children more of the world and appreciate how and where other people live and to inspire them to travel, for them to appreciate the planning that goes into an expedition (or even a holiday!), and to look at communication skills and teamwork.

SUGGESTIONS – this is not meant to be an arduous task. A woolly hat, tracksuit bottoms and a pair of trainers for a snowy expedition, a sun hat and bucket and spade for a tropical island. Shorts and a sun hat for jungle location, walking boots and a raincoat for a mountain. We hope you have fun deciding where to explore!
