Year 5

Where did that first half-term go? It is has absolutely flown by! We've had a great start to the year. It's been busy, but full of fun! We've celebrated European Day of Languages with a visit from a Peruvian artist- Maya. Maya taught us some Spanish, shared her stories of travels around South America, taught us all about Day of the Dead and held an art workshop creating Mexican sugar skulls. In outdoor learning, the children have painted beautiful models of the solar system, carried out a fizzy bottle rocket investigation and carved scary Halloween faces out of clay. In geography, the children have competed against each other in Kahoots quizzes- this led to hysterical laughter and ear to ear grins!

We will be writing adventure stories about journeys through space as well as information texts based on the weird and wonderful creatures from the planet 'Pandora'. In art, we will be researching and using the art of Peter Thorpe to inspire our own rocket themed paintings.
