Welcome to our class page! Keep an eye out for information about what we get up to this year!
Gardening week was a complete success! The children (and adults!) enjoyed a lovely few days outdoors helping to make the school grounds look better. Year 5 had the tricky task of ripping out all of the brambles and nettles by the tyres (check out the before and after photos!) as well as tidying up the willows and getting rid of all of the dead wood. We also decided to spruce up (pun intended!) the entrance to the Year 5 and 6 corridor by creating a scented garden. The children produced some lovely labels for each plant, giving advice about how to look after them. Thank you so much for your generosity and for donating so many lovely plants, compost, tools and pots. We very much appreciate it!
Computing - Creating 3D Games
Year five have been creating 3D environments to be used in computer games. The games had to be linked with their class topic. The children created a number of fantastic games with some wonderful links to the Greeks.
On Wednesday 28th November, we had an art day! Year 5 looked at the artist M.C. Escher. In the morning, we carried out research about the artist and discovered lots of interesting things about him. After break, we created templates of lizards, birds and fish and repeated the pattern to make a tessellation, which is what Escher is famous for! In the afternoon, we looked at Escher's piece: "Three Worlds." We recreated the picture using a mixture of mediums and techniques - painting, collage and sketching. It was a fantastic day full of creativity and fun! Have a look at some of the work we produced.
This week, Year 5 have been architects as they've designed and constructed their own Viking longhouses based on their knowledge of Viking life. The children used card, lollipop sticks, art straws, paint, a lot of straw and lashings of creativity! They're very proud of what they've created and we've currently got our own Viking village in Class 5!
Take a look at them and see what you think...
