Year 5 – EXPLORE UNIVERSITY PROJECT

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!

Christmas Dinner Day

Our Christmas Dinner day is on Thursday 9th December 2021.

This year, we are offering a free Christmas Dinner to all children.

Jacket potatoes are not available on this day so if your child does not want a Christmas Dinner then a home packed lunch will need to be provided.

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!
