A huge well done to our year 5 children this week. They have produced some fabulous learning and managed to catch up with Mr Hanson and the other children in Northumberland.
It’s so lovely to see so many children sharing their learning with me. I’m so proud of you all and to see the smiles on your faces when celebrating your achievements is just the best. Congratulations on your literacy, numeracy and design and technology skills this week –
As part of Black History Month, 5/6H and 6B have looked at the artwork of Adia Millett. We analysed her artwork in paint, textiles and wood. We then created our own versions of her work. The results have been lovely.
5/6H really enjoyed their time willow weaving this week. We hope we can develop these skills further in the future!
As part of our learning on fractions, 5/6H and 6B completed an orienteering course where the stations were all fractions problems. The children tried hard to solve all the problems and complete all the stations. They used cross curricular maths skills by reading and following maps as well.
On Friday, 5/6H wore their yellow clothing and discussed the importance of positive mental health.

This week we used our water colour skills to look at waves. We looked at how different brush strokes have different effects for creating an image of a wave.
This week, we linked our knowledge of coastlines and Science to discuss life in rock pools. We researched different creatures and how they have adapted to live in a rock pool. There were some very interesting ways of keeping alive when the tide is out!
Combining our French and Geography skills, we discussed how languages travel across the world and where in the world different languages are spoken. We then researched and located countries who speak French.

Mrs Tunks always loves taking us on adventures. We explored the pond and saw lots of frogs and tadpoles. I hope we didn’t scare them off.
Using our book Kensuke’s Kingdom, the children looked through the vocabulary from a page to produce their own blackout poetry. The results were fantastic and everyone made a great start to the term!
