Year 5 have really enjoyed our topic of World War 1 and have produced some amazing work.
They have studied posters from World War 1 and discussed how each poster influenced the men of
1914. We have linked these ideas to propaganda.
We have studied the war artist Paul Nash and use some of his trench paintings as inspiration for our own. The children chose very powerful titles for their works of art.
We have visited the Imperial War Museum and learned so much about why and how the war was fought.
During half term many of the children chose to design and make a model of a trench. As you can see these models are fantastic. The attention to detail and innovative use of materials show real skill
Year 5 basked in mathematical vocabulary in these nature themed lessons...symmetry, spheres and segments
Year 5 made aliens and adapted their features for survival..
Year 5 use apparatus and jottings...... a great way to solve problems in maths!
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.
