This term in year 5 we have been continuing our topic ‘The Americas’. We have taken inspiration from the Native Americans and designed and built totem poles to represent our personalities. They took lots of hard word, determination and perseverance but we think they look great – don’t you agree?
We have also been looking at the work of David Hockney and using this as inspiration for our own artwork. Mrs Hatton has been a great help and her artistic eye has ensured our work is to a really high standard. Here are just a few examples of the children’s brilliant landscapes.
This term, Year 4 having been studying the Vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Normans. We began with a Bang, by playing a large game of capture the flag and invading each other’s territory.
Since then, we have independently researched key events, written newspaper stories and used atlases to find out where they are from and where they invaded.
In maths, we have been learning all about fractions. Our favourite lesson was definitely when we had to find fractions of a bar of chocolate. As you can guess, there was no chocolate left by the end of it!
This week the children in Hedgehog and Squirrel class have been busy practicing for our Christmas production called Lights, Camel, Action! The play includes many disco dances so we’ve had lots of steps to learn, as well as the songs and our lines. The play is starting to take shape and we are looking forward to performing for our families soon. Here is a sneak preview of our rehearsal this week.
The performances are on Monday 12th December at 2pm and Wednesday 14th December at 9.30am. We look forward to seeing you there!
