This page is dedicated to information about Year 5, useful information across the school year we are involved with and a celebration of our hard work!


Greek Vases

We are soon to make our own Greek Vases out of clay, so we have practised first using some traditional Ancient Greek repeated patterns. Check these out!

We have now entered our Topic all about Ancient Greece. The children are instantly enthused and have loved the activities we have covered so far, particularly about the Greek Gods! There are lots more exciting opportunities to come this half term so watch this space!

Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night

Over the course of the half term, the children have been exploring the artistic style of Vincent Van Gogh. Throughout our art lessons, we have explored the style of his brush strokes, how he conveys emotion through his work and how this affects his choice of colours. The children have loved creating their own replica of his celestial themed work and the outcome has been phenomenal.

Some very proud artists to be certain!

Earth & Space with Awesome Ash

Our class have loved finding out all things Space this half term! Here is some of our fantastic homework on display.

The children were tasked with creating a multi-modal fact file about any planet of their choice.

To coincide with our core text, The War of the Worlds by H.G Wells, they were also asked to design their own alien invader! Everyone has really immersed themselves in the topic and the work has been fantastic!
