Friday 3rd July

Good morning everyone!

I hope that you've had a good week and enjoyed your learning.

I just wanted to share a song with you that Lily sent me yesterday. It made me smile and I thought it might make you smile too! Thank you for sharing it with us Lily!


I also want to say thank you to the children who sent me their poems. When I set the task, I did worry that perhaps it might be a bit tricky giving you so much choice but you've completely amazed me with your creativity and hard work. THANK YOU all for working so hard over the last few months. You really are a special bunch and it's been a pleasure to teach you.


Have a wonderful weekend Year 5

Guided Reading

No work for guided reading today! I'd just like you to listen to Chapter 8 below!

We're moving on from reflection today and thinking about something called translation.

Watch the video below for an introduction into the topic and to learn how you translate shapes on a grid:


This video explains how you translate shapes.

Now I'd like you to look at the PowerPoint below to consolidate your new learning and then choose a chilli to have a go at!


LO: Can I translate shapes?


We're going to end our Groundshakers topic and the week with a bit of art!


We're going to be using a painting called "The Starry Night" as inspiration today. This painting is a very famous painting by the artist Vincent Van Gogh.


To find out more about Van Gogh, look at the PowerPoint below:

The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

Below is a blank version of the painting for you to finish. You can colour it with pencil crayons or felt tips or paint it if you're feeling particularly arty! Try to focus on the sky and creating a similar effect as Van Gogh as this is what we're using as inspiration for our art work.
Now that you've had a chance to practise using a similar artistic style as Van Gogh, I'd like you to apply this technique to a piece of artwork linked to our volcanoes topic. Have a look at the picture below:

I'd like you to either copy and recreate the picture above or create a similar picture of a volcano inspired by this one and "The Starry Night" by Van Gogh.


You can use crayons, pencils, paint, collage, felts - whatever you like!


Send me in photographs of your work because I would really like to see them!


It would be lovely to create a display in school of your artwork and volcano poems so if you're coming in for one of the transition days, I'll ask you to bring your work in with you! I can't wait to see it!
