Year 5 had lots of fun with our photo booth props yesterday. Merry Christmas, everyone!
During this half term, we will be doing our first Design & Technology unit where we will be creating a pop-up card. In our first lesson, the children decided on the occasion for their greeting card. They carefully sketched and coloured different designs for their chosen theme.
During our first art project, the children worked hard to create a fantastic Blitz silhouette. They started by sketching planes with WWII designs. Next, they created a painted graduated background, thinking carefully about how to blend and reflect the colours of a sunset. After that, the children studied the architecture of London during WWII and created a double page in their sketchbooks to inspire their silhouette. Finally, they created their silhouette. Below you can see some of the children's final piece. Well done 5HP!
In science, the children were set a challenge to use equipment to filter dirty water to make it as clean as possible. The teams worked amazingly. They thought of brilliant innovative ways of filtering the water without any guidance! I was so impressed with the collaboration in the lesson and how supportive all the children were of their peers. Congratulations to the winning team! I am looking forward to lots more science fun this year! Well done 5HP.
A fantastic start!
5HP were all praised on Friday 4th September for their brilliant, mature and hard-working attitudes. There are lots of changes around school, but all the children have taken it in their stride. We are all very proud of them and are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
