Year 5’s China WOW day involved calligraphy, cooking and arts and crafts!
We enjoyed our Roman WOW day with a Roman costume fashion parade, Roman mosaics, sketching Roman artefacts and learning a song about the Romans.
Our topic this term has been ‘Where would you catch a tear thief?’ The focus has been on narrative writing and explanation texts. Everyone has produced wonderful artwork and writing over the past few weeks which we wanted to share:
Year 5 pupils organised a fundraising event to raise money for Save the Children. They ran a lucky dip, a book sale, a toy sale and a cake sale and raise a brilliant total of £111.94.
During Stem week, Green class enjoyed bubble painting, volcano explosions, symmetry and weighing and measuring. We used the smart board to create a story map of the three little pigs using technology.
Last week, three performers from The Tobacco Factory visited Year 6 to help us explore and perform parts of Macbeth.
The day started with a discussion of the three main characters in the play before each class focused on one of them for the day. Through the workshops, the classes developed a far greater understanding of the motivations of the characters. At the end of the day, all of the classes performed a short piece that they had created in the day.
Our focus this week has been exploration and discovery. We enjoyed leading our own research on Monday and nature and creating investigations about pollution.
We had a brilliant time at Stoke Park learning about our local environment, making birds nests from natural materials and creating dens in the woods!
Pear Class’ assembly was about the Great Fire of London. The children shared examples of their excellent writing, imagination station and models of tutor houses.
