Year 5 enjoyed a successful Greek day. A culmination of their geography/history study of Ancient Greece. They made a great effort to come to school dressed in Greek style costumes (thanks for parent input).
The day was filled with activities like:
There was also a fun filled booklet devised by Miss Nahar, 3 of which may receive a prize when returned to school!
Year 5 have been learning about Greek Temples as part of their topic this term. They were set a task for Design Technology. Could they make a Greek Temple using just paper and masking tape? Which temple would hold the most atlases? The children loved this task they worked collaboratively and used some good design ideas. A very enjoyable afternoon!
Pupils in Year 5 made cribs with modelling clay and painted. They formed part of their Christmas display in their classroom.
Mrs McInroy and the School Council launched Anti Bullying Week at assembly as the children explained this year's theme 'One Kind Word - or phrase'.
All children will be engaged in doing lots of kind acts next week and hopefully beyond.
Children have been asked to wear odd socks to school on Monday to celebrate their individuality.
We also presented an assembly about COP 26 and wrote some very persuasive letters to the politicians and leaders of the world. The letters are on display in the hall.
Year 5 are coming to the end of their topic about World War 1. Here are some paintings we created using Paul Nash as our inspiration. He was a World War 1 War artist who was determined to show the devastation of the trenches.
Some children have created some amazing trenches at home for their half term project. They are amazing!! Well done Year 5!
Our Religion Display is about Creation - we have discussed the Creation story and are finding out about why we should care for our world. We are also learning about COP26 and how we can make changes for the future.
In Class we are studying Private Peaceful - Last week children wrote some lovely character descriptions from the novel. This week they have written diary entries from the point of view of Tommo. I have been very impressed by their hard work and effort.
