Year 5 - Jade Class and Lime Class
Year 5 Welcome Booklets
The children have really enjoyed their first half term in Year 5! They have been learning about the Mayans and writing adventure stories in English as well as looking at number and the 4 operations in maths.
In DT, the children have been learning about healthy eating and how to adapt meals to make them healthier. They learnt about the nutritional value of meals and practised their grating and chopping skills. Their favourite part was getting to taste their meals, of course!
We had a wonderful Art Week in Year 5 and we really enjoyed showing our work to parents at the Fantastic Finish event. As you can see from the pictures below, the children worked really hard practising different painting techniques and pattern designs. We compared the styles of two artists - Dan Fenelon and Sam Cox - and then used Dan's animal creations to develop our own art pieces using complimentary colours. The artwork the children produced was brilliant and they had lots of fun!
In Science, the children have been studying about the Earth and space. They have really enjoyed the practical experiments, investigating how the rotation of the Earth causes night and day as well as the orbit of the Moon and other planets in the solar system.
