Autumn 1 Art Club with Mr Farlow

Linked to Y5’s learning about Vikings, the children have produced some fantastic oil pastel drawings. They have carefully considered using harmonious and complementary colours to create very aesthetically pleasing pieces.

Well done to Orelia, Brayan, Henrietta, Sigrid, Lily, Sara, Kairav and Tyler.

Kicking the football season off with an 8-1 win…

We kicked the football season off with a convincing 8-1 win…

On Monday, our Year 5 and 6 girls football team played their first friendly of the season. The girls played at home against Muxton Primary School and put on a fantastic display of football for the spectators. Our girls showed determination, teamwork and spirit as they battled their way to a convincing 8-1 win in their first game of the season. All members of the team played their part, and Miss Brown and Mr Broderick were extremely proud. Poppy (5 goals), Raya (2 goals), and Lacey (1 goal).

Well done all- on to the next!

Our Spring themed Art Day

We all had a wonderful ‘arty’ day on Tuesday. The children were able to practise lots of skills, such as printing, watercolour painting, 3D clay or mod roc models, collage, oil pastel drawings and sketching.

Here are some of the super examples from Reception, Year 1 and Year 5:

Today, we have been busy learning about university life. The “Explore University” project is organised by Keele University, Staffordshire University, University of Wolverhampton and Harper Adams University and aims to help primary school children understand more about university. The children were challenged to recreate many aspects of a university using lego. Year 5 showed great resilience, teamwork and imagination throughout the morning. Well done!

No Pens Day – Year 5!

We have had a lovely day in Year 5 making the most of the opportunities to work without pens!

We completed French activities based around describing feelings, listened and responded to music, made (rather fiddly) Christmas decorations for our school tree and completed a drama lesson this afternoon!

Our communication skills were used all day and the performances of the Wormy Spaghetti scene from The Twits this afternoon required lots of imagination and focus!

Keep your eye on your class’ Seesaw page for photos and videos.

Art in Year 5

The teaching of art and design at our school instils an appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts. Year 5 children have certainly enjoyed their curriculum this term – exploring a range of mediums to help them communicate what they see through the elements of colour, texture, tone and pattern. Here are some examples…


A fun-filled last day of half-term in Year 5!

We had a fabulous day reading and following a recipe to create snot-tails (which were actually delicious)! We also listened to a mysterious story called The Hook!

The children also enjoyed creating silhouettes with black paper and beautiful watercolour backgrounds!

Thank you to everyone for a wonderful last day – enjoy your week off and keep safe!

Welcome back Year 5!

Welcome back Year 5 and a very happy September to you! We hope you have enjoyed your first few days back in school – we certainly have! Thank you to you all for being such lovely company and for adjusting to life in your ‘bubbles’ so well. We are looking forward to a fantastic year!
