Year 5

Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece

Year 5 have been using oil pastels to create their ancient vases. We took time to design our vase first, thinking about what the vase could be used for and what design would be on the vase itself. We made sure to think about how a historian would read our vase to tell us about past events.

Owls in School

Owls in School

This week, we had a visit from our special guest, Paul O’Neil, The Owl Man. The children from all year groups were fascinated by Paul’s collection of owls, which he kindly brought into school. The children were able to ask many wondering questions about these beautiful creatures.

This half term we will focus on netball in PE. This week, we developed different netball passes and discussed when it is best to use a particular type of pass. Well done Year 5.

Today, we had our first school radio broadcast of the year. Two Year 5 children introduced the radio station and then read the Wednesday Word live on air. In the coming weeks, we hope to be able to record our broadcasts and upload them to our website. Watch this space!

The Boy, the Fox, the Mole and the Horse.

The Boy, the Fox, the Mole and the Horse.

As we welcomed all children back into Year 5, we decided to focus on friendship and acceptance. We started the week reading, ‘The Boy, the Fox, the Mole and the Horse’ by Charlie Mackesy. We discussed what the illustrations could mean and explained the point of view that the author is trying to make.

Finally, we created our own piece of art work through the inspiration of Charlie Mackesy. We can’t wait to share our finished work.
