Spring Term Year 5 Newsletter

World Book Day 2023 and Poetry Workshop

A brilliant Art lesson today. The children's finished art work was amazing! They sketched an insect from a still-life image, then used watercolours to create tone and depth.

The class ROCKING OUT to MULTIPLICATION to celebrate the launch of a school Times Table Rock Stars battle. Can our class keep this years 100% winning record??? Every play counts towards the competition, but more importantly, every play counts to the children becoming more confident and fluent in their multiplication recall. WE CAME 3rd, another great effort. Congratulations to the other Year 5 class for their win!

The children from Mr Kaufman's class participated in a 'Play In A day' performance.  They were given the title 'Space' and were guided through a series of exercises and ideas to develop a play which they performed to other children in the school at the end of the day. It was amazing to watch ALL the children grow in confidence throughout the day.

The children developing their Play in a Day ideas

Christmas songs playing and festive cheer by all, as each child made a set of 5 Christmas cards. They used the splash, scratch and dot techniques which they had previously practiced.

Gymnastics on different apparatus. The children enjoyed creating unusual shapes and then exploring different methods to move around or across the equipment.

INTERNET SAFETY is very important. This half term, the children have been discussing and examining methods of using the internet safely. How do they keep passwords safe and is it an easy password to guess? How do we find reliable information or communicate using the internet?

Children in Year 5 have been practicing creating effects using dots (pointillism), splashes (splatter painting) and scratches (sgraffito) in readiness for creating Christmas cards!
