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.
Year 5 have learnt about propaganda this week. They analysed, designed and then created their very own World War 1 posters. They worked very hard and the display looks beautiful.
Year 5 have been enjoying their PE sessions. They are participating in gymnastics this term. They have made great progress already and are more confident with their jumping and landing. They are also gaining more skill on the high ropes. Well done Year 5!
Year 5 used weights to know that weighing scales are calibrated.
Year 5 are settling in well to their new class.
They have started working on their new novel - Private Peaceful.
