Year 5 Blog - Autumn term 2022

Img 1762Welcome to the Year 5 Autumn term blog.

A great start to year 5.  The children thoroughly enjoyed their belated trip to Lea Valley Park.  We are now at the end of our Place Value topic, and will be moving onto addition and subtraction next.  In English we have enjoyed The Promise, and are now looking at Wolves in the Walls.  For art we have been looking at specific artists and have reproduced work in their style, e.g. Friedrich Hundertwasser. You can see some of Year 5's attempts in the gallery.

6th December - Year 5 performed their Christmas play this afternoon. It went really well, the children were brilliant and it all came together in front of an audience of very proud parents!  There was a chance to take photos of the children after the show but don't forget to watch the recording on Google classroom!

Rags Brooks Geography Walk

As part of our Geography topic we did a local area walk to Rags Brook.  We followed the brook, and discussed how it changes and its uses.






Year 5 have been completing some Jubilee collage work.

We made queen collages, using tissue paper and pointillism, using cotton buds.  We made a completed and negative view, and then added the royal outline of blue or purple.

The children have worked really hard on their Monsterology unit of work, combining research, writing, computing and art skills. The Y5 parents were invited in to share all the amazing work the children produced! The written presentation shows how well they have applied their new handwriting skills - there were lots of comments from parents about how impressed they were!
