Book Week

User Rating:  / 0

Last week was World Book Week so we took this opportunity to work with Year 1 children. On Friday afternoon Year 1 read their favourite books to Year 5. Year 5 were very supportive, helping the younger children read difficult words and asking questions about the story they had read. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Year 5 Philosophy

User Rating:  / 0

We have enjoyed learning about philosophy this week.  Philosophy is an Ancient Greek word meaning ‘love of wisdom’ or ‘aiming to be wise.’  We hope to be very wise at the end of the sessions!  We have thought about a special poem and what it could mean:

A wise old owl lived in an oak tree

The more he saw the less he spoke

The less he spoke the more he heard

Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?

 What are your thoughts on the poem?

Morris Dancing

User Rating:  / 0

Year 5 are still working really hard. This week we have been able to start our topic work. During P.E Year 5 have really enjoyed starting to learn a traditional morris dance. We have watched two different videos and picked out the key moves involved. We are now working In small groups to put these moves together to form a dance that fits the rhythm and beat of the music.

A fantastic start to Year 5

User Rating:  / 0

We have all had a great start to the year in Year 5.  We are working incredibly hard and are looking forward to the year ahead.  To begin the year we have been looking at symbolism in religions and also within artwork.  We have looked at the Singh Twins artwork and created our own portraits in the same style.  Within our paintings there are symbols that tell you a little about ourselves...see if you can see any.
