    This week, Year 5 are working on their empathy skills, by researching about the interests of another class member. They will be presenting this information as either a poster, newspaper article, passport or any other creative way that they feel. The idea is that this is a celebration of the person that they are interviewing.

    Some great questions that we have had so far have been:

    What is your philosophy for a good life?

    If you were going to invite some famous people to a dinner party, who would you invite?

    Desert island disc questions.


    All children need to look at Mathletics as there are a lot of outstanding tasks. We are close to finishing most categories in Mathletics, so more will be added today.


    Prejudice, privilege, profession, programme, pronunciation, queue, recognise


    T-U-V countries

     Finally, last week's homework was written to a great standard. A lot of you had to rewrite your poems to give the presentation justice for such great poetry. Keep up the good work!

    This Week

    In maths this week we have been finishing off our topic of angles and measures. During the topic we measured angles in Kandinsky's art work, made treasure maps and did a lot of measuring. 

    In literacy this week, we have started looking at poetry. The poems we have focussed on have been about the sea. The children have written several poems using different techniques such as repetition and word patterns. 

    In topic, we have learnt about the invasion of the Vikings at Lindisfarne and we started to investigate King Alfred's reign. 

    Next Week

    We will continue our work on poetry. In Maths we will start to look at place value.

  • Art Competitions All Should Enter

    Published 19/01/18, by Admin

    Due to the fact that we have a very inspiring, artistic class; I would like to make everyone aware of a 2 art competitions that you should all enter

    This is the first one by the Victoria and Albert Museum: The much-loved stories of Winnie-the-Pooh are brought to life by wonderful illustrations that help readers to step inside the story and connect with the characters. Thinking about the importance of the relationship between words and pictures, we’d like you to create a completely original, fictional character and tell us a bit about them.

    To enter follow the link.

    The second is by the St Barbe Museum

    This year also sees our first ever Young Artist's Open which encourages budding artists aged up to 17 to submit two-dimensional artworks on a standard sized board provided by the museum. 
    It's just £1 to center and there are three age groups, and some great prizes on offer.
    The St Barbe Young Artist’s Open will coincide with the St Barbe Open Exhibition.

    On Thursda we had a school trip to Ballard School to do a drama workshop. It was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We all had lots of funacting out a classroom scene including; Violet Buerogade, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Charlie, Augustus Gloop and a teacher. About half way through we stopped for a delicious, mouth-watering snack. The Kit Kats were beautiful.  The moment the tip of the tongue touched the smooth choclate surface you were plunged head first into the magical land of unicorns and rainbows. Tamsin said "I thought it was really awesome". 

    In Maths we leart about co-ordinates and Roman Numerals which, personally we both think are fun indeed. So good Maths lessons for us.
