Crucial Crew Trip

Year 5/6 visited Crucial Crew to learn life skills and avoid a range of potentially hazardous situations. This visit covered the following aspects:

  • Road safety
  • How to travel on a bus safely
  • Internet safety
  • First aid
  • The age of criminal responsibility
  • Fire safety  

As part of the learning the students visited a replica pub, a house, a playground and a courtroom. They learned about the consequences involved if you break the law. E.g. knife crime, hate crime and arson.


Houses of Parliament

Class Debate

As part of our project, we looked at what it meant to live in a democratic society. We identified the role of parliament and explored current issues regarding immigration and Brexit. Following this, we had our own parliamentary debate, which helped us gain a better understanding of parliament before we visited the Houses of Parliament.


Over three sessions, our students were provided with the basic first aid knowledge required for a first aid emergency.


Year 5 and 6 investigated separating materials through magnetism, filtration, sieving and evaporating.

Making Casein Plastic

Year 5/6 explored how to make casein (a solid) by mixing two liquids (milk and vinegar). They heated the milk and then added a small amount of vinegar. Then they poured the mixture through filter paper to filter out the solid blobs. Finally, they molded the blobs into different shapes and let it harden.
