Year 5 have been studying the impressionist painter Claude Monet.
We have looked at his use of brush strokes, the choice of colours and the way the same scenes change throughout the seasons.
Our skills started inside the class, creating our own colour palettes and developing brush strokes similar to Monet.
Taking our palettes and sketch pads outside it was time paint the wonderful views around our school.
After lots of concentration and hard work it was time to show off our impressionism art. What do you think Claude Monet would think?
Over three half days Year 5 had the opportunity to visit the amazing water sports and outdoor centre at Astbury Mere.
Day 1 – The children got the chance to paddle-board, kayak and canoe onto the lake, each activity requiring a particular challenge. We even had a few visitors who wanted to explore, they were a little quackers.
Day 2 – Year 5 were given the opportunity to build their own raft which would then be cast onto the lake. With a little help from one another all the class were able to set sail, however, not all were able to stay aboard.
Day 3 – Leaving their sea legs behind the children explored the world of ‘bush-craft’. Orienteering and fire building were today’s missions, as well as a cheeky toasted marshmallow.
The children have had a brilliant time at Astbury Mere today. They were split in to two teams (Cheese and Onions) to design, build and sail a raft. The cheese team definitely looked like they were experts in building however their raft didn’t quite live up to its design and part of it came apart. Both rafts did float though. The onion team won the race to the ducks!
Today year 5 and 6 joined forces to compete in Sports Day.
The temperature was hot and so was the competition.
After a hard day of sports an ice cream was the perfect end to an amazing day as a treat from the school. Thank you Mrs Isherwood.
Having fun during sports day with difference.
Chloe performed the song she had written for our music lesson today. I didn’t know she had such a great voice.
Today’s Year 5 English task was to film a TV Advert using comedy. Well they certainly did that! I have tears rolling down my cheeks.
Charlie L in Year 5 has been busy building with his electronics kit.
This week the children in Year 5 were set the challenge to write a play. Some children created stop motion animations for their plays. They all did a brilliant job.
This week the children have learnt about sounds in their Science lesson. They were asked to create a presentation about what they have learnt.
This week the children have been focusing on poetry for their English home learning tasks. Joe wrote and performed his poem.
Today in our home learning science lesson, the children learnt about the circulatory system.
Luis, Zack and Izzy all did detailed drawings.
Great costume and pose Charlie!
