What a week we have had! This week, Year 5 have had some fantastic discussion based around Remembrance Day, including creating their own piece of artwork, and an acrostic poem in English.
We also celebrated National Maths Week by taking part in a Maths escape room. The children had to use all of their prior knowledge from the Autumn Term so far to crack codes, solve the puzzle and find the code to escape!
Finally, the children have been working so hard this past term to perfect their Hail Mary prayer in Makaton. I am so happy with the pride they have taken in this, so please ask them to share some of this with you at home.
Remember: be kind, be brave, be thankful, be happy, be you!

We have been busy this week! We have touched on everything from WW2 poetry to celebrating Black History Month by writing a biography of Nelson Mandela's life. This week, Year 5 also reflected on the importance of Global Handwashing Day and how fortunate we are to have soap and running water. They carried out a science experiment to find out how soap repels the germs and bacteria on our hands!

This week, the class have been reflecting on inspirational individuals in RE, who demonstrate how to follow the teachings of Jesus through their work. We focussed on the prayer by St Teresa of Avila, and the children then produced their own prayers, thinking about how they could use their hands, eyes and ears, to spread the word of Jesus.

This week, the children have continued with tag rugby in their PE lessons with Mrs O'Hare. They have worked on skills such as dodging, attacking, defending, and scoring tries. They have shown fantastic resilience and great determination. I'm sure they can't wait to get stuck into a mini game of tag rugby now!

This week, we celebrated European Languages Day (26/09/21), which celebrates cultural diversity and language learning across Europe. In Year 5, we looked at the Russian abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky and attempted to recreate his famous 'concentric circles' artwork. They did such a fantastic job and even wrote their name in Russian!

This week in art, the children developed their own artistic techniques to create images from WW2. They reflected on their hatching and stippling skills to try and recreate some famous artwork depicting the war era.
