Summer term is fast approaching, looking forward, we will be developing and improving our investigation skills in Science, as well as, writing and performing our own poetry and consolidating our mathematical skills.
Meanwhile, let's take a look back at the second half of Spring term.
We have been sketching self portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
The children have really enjoyed our topic on Victorians this term. We have been writing letters, writing their own front page news reports, diary entries and poems. Here are some examples of the children's work.
We are half way through the school year already. It has flown by so quickly!! We all had a great time taking part in orienteering and working together as a team.

The whole school had an assembly called BE BRIGHT, BE SEEN to encourage children to be safe and make sure they can be seen during the dark winter evenings.
All the children entered a competition to see who wore their brightest clothes.
Year 5H had great fun creating their own 3d shapes using art straws and polydron. Can you name any of the shapes they have made?
Year 5H have spent the last 6 weeks working on and improving their fitness skills.
We have really enjoyed our topic on the Earth, Sun and Moon.
We produced some information posters on planets in the Solar System.
In art we experimented with colours to show different tones. We used this technique to help us with our sketching. We then transferred those skills to our paintings. Some of us went even further by adding tissue paper and glitter to show texture and depth.
Year 5H enjoyed mixing colours to create mood as part of their science topic on Earth, Sun and Moon
Year 5H explaining the movement of the Earth, Sun and moon.
We took our learning outside and used balls to show the movement of the Earth, Sun and Moon.
Year 5 have been performing poems by Grace Nichols.
We have also enjoyed our topic on John Constable who was a landscape artist. We went to Southmere Lake to look at our local landscape.
Here we are sketching the local landscape.
We used our sketches to create pastel landscapes.
Can you guess which photographs we used to create these pictures?
