Return to School, Autumn One
It is wonderful to have the children back in school, learning alongside each other again. They have shown a huge amount of resilience and thrown themselves back in to their learning 🙂 We are very proud of them.
Split Self-Portraits and Rainbows
Year 5 have been working on split self-portraits. One half shows themselves and the other is bursting with their likes, interests and things that make them unique. We have also been busy making rainbows which helped us to think and reflect on our time at home and the positive things we learnt.
In Year 5 we have been thinking about ways in which we can motivate and inspire others. We have created motivational posters to help us all remember why we are amazing!
It has been wonderful seeing some of the creative learning that Year 5 have been doing this week 🙂 The children have been busy doing a variety of activities, including designing their own front cover for their favourite book; drawing birds; creating doodle arms; making nature Mandalas; and designing their own superhero. Well done everyone!
Here are some photos of Year 5’s amazing Nature Mandalas. The word ‘mandala’ is ancient Sanskrit for circle. The circle symbolises how nature has no beginning or end but is always connected. I think you’ll agree that they are absolutely beautiful!
Please take a moment to read this beautiful prayer, written by one of our Year 5 pupils.
It is lovely to see these commemorative mug designs, in celebration of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day).
It is wonderful to see the children still creating brilliant artwork in support of our NHS heroes. Here is a beautiful piece, using just masking tape and chalk on the ground:
Easter Holiday Activities:
It has been so lovely seeing some of the wonderful creations and activities that the children have been doing over the Easter break. These include painting pebbles and creating posters to recognise our NHS heroes; creating Easter bookmarks; making Easter baskets and bonnets; and working on projects. It’s also lovely to see the Polish tradition of growing cress over Easter. It looks like they have had a fun and creative time!
This week, Year Five were asked to carry out an experiment which involved evaporating salty water. Here is a picture from one of the investigations that was carried out at home
Click to see the Y5 letter that the children have written to their parents and carers all about out their focus on plastic pollution and its impact on the environment. The children are pleading for support from their families to support this important cause for change.
