Getting Fit in Year 5!

Getting Fit in Year 5!

Year 5 have been working hard and building up a regular sweat in PE lessons this half-term. We have been working on improving our stamina, speed and strength in a Fitness block of learning. It’s been tough work at times but we have encouraged each other and shown determination to complete each exercise.

Democracy and New Additions in Year 5

Democracy and New Additions in Year 5

Year 5 welcomed two new friends into class today. A Mr and Mrs Hedgehog, who have both made from the pages of old repurposed books, and have become lovely additions to our class library. Everyone had ideas for what their names should be, so to decide we held a class vote, where we all got to have a say. We learnt that this right to give our opinions on big decisions originated from Ancient Greece, which we are going to find out more about in our History topic this term. We can’t wait!

Year 5 – Liturgy on New Beginnings

We started our new year together in Year 5 with a liturgy on new beginnings. We listened to the Gospel of Luke and offered prayers to Jesus, asking for strength and courage to begin the new year in a positive way. We reminded ourselves of the parts of liturgy and planned it together with Mr Moore.
Year 5 Art

Year 5 Art

Year 5 finished their final Art block today. We have focused on different printing techniques and looked at the stencil work of street artist Banksy. We looked at the hidden messages in his work and then worked to create our own stencil that would represent us and our own message. The children chose to send messages of: world love, togetherness, equality, looking after the natural environment.

Year 5’s Active Start to the Day

Year 5’s Active Start to the Day

Year 5 have loved getting active first thing on a morning by completing the ‘Daily Mile’ challenge. “The exercise really wakes us up and gets us ready for our lessons.” The children worked out that they completed an average of 54 miles per day as a whole class throughout the first week.
