Look at what we have been up to this year! 2022-23
Year 5 have researched the work of Paul Cadden, looking at his one and two point perspective art. We then had a go at our own one-point perspective work. First, we had a go at drawing bubble letters on a one-point scale. Then, we tried to ensure that we were drawing to scale, with objects further away being drawn smaller and objects closer being drawn bigger.
5H and 5G enjoyed making some Christmas Pixel Art in their computing lessons. The children had fun tinkering with pixel size and trying to get their pixel art to move.
Year 5 enjoyed investigating how we would separate different materials. We looked at the different separating techniques such as filtering, sieving, evaporation and magnetism. We then used this knowledge to predict which technique would be best to separate mixtures such as raisins and flour, rice and paper-clips, sand and water and salt and water. After this, we conducted our experiment to see how accurate our predictions were.
This half term, we have learnt about the force of gravity and investigated whether the weight of an object affected the speed it would fall.
We have enjoyed investigating air resistance and water resistance in year 5! We have learnt that the larger the object, the more air/water resistance and therefore the slower the movement!
Red Nose Day
We LOVED dressing up for World Book Day and discussing the characters that we had dressed up as! We even designed our own classroom door, making predictions for what we think will happen in 'The Explorer' and designed our own book covers.
Red Nose Day
This half-term, we were lucky enough to learn all about the Ukulele. We discovered where it originated, the different parts of the instrument, different techniques to create a sound and even had a go at playing the 'C' chord.
We are super proud of our year 5 boys football team! They have represented our school fantastically, showing sportsmanship, teamwork and determination in every game!
Year 5 loved their cooking lessons. They learnt different techniques of cutting different foods, depending on the size of the food and all about the different herbs and spices that go into meals to add both flavour and texture.
Greek Hero Workshop
We had the opportunity to revisit, recall and consolidate our Ancient Greeks and Greek Myth knowledge with an Ancient Greek Hero Workshop. In this workshop, we managed to slay Medusa, create freeze frames of Greek Myths and show the different sports within the Ancient Greek Olympics through different freeze frames. We had so much fun!
WOW! Year 5 came up with some EGGcellent designs for our egg competition this Easter - it was so hard to choose first, second and third place! Well done everyone!
Year 5 had a great time making Christmas stockings. Firstly, we researched what stockings are used for and made of etc. We then designed our own stocking and practised a couple of sewing techniques that we could use. We finally made our stocking and then evaluated it.
We looked at the work of Paul Signac. We drew our own landscape and used the stippling technique with paint to create a blended image of dots!
TT Rock stars Day
We love TT Rock stars in Year 5, but especially on TT Rock stars day. Children came dressed up as rock stars and participated in times table activities all day. We even had a year group battle, which was very competitive!
Year 5 led the Harvest assembly in church. The children said their lines clearly, acted out confidently and the whole of Key Stage 2 sang beautifully! Well done Year 5!
