As part of our Art studies, Year 5 are learning about the techniques and subject matter of classic painters. This week, we found out about the life of Frida Kahlo and what influenced her art. Below are some examples of the pupils work, inspired by Kahlo.
If your piece of artwork doesn't appear on this blog but you would like it to, please let me know.
Don't forget about the Big Garden Watch this weekend - spend an hour counting the birds you see from your garden or patio (from the comfort of a chair by the window, of course!) and submit your results. You can find out more on the RSPB Big Garden Watch website.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

What a busy week!
You have all worked so hard again this week and now deserve a well earned rest. Well done!
Thank you very much to everyone for turning up to our lesson this morning on 'Online Etiquette'. There were some fantastic and well-considered suggestions about how we should behave whilst in 'lessons' online going forward and I would like to thank everyone for their contribution. If you have anything you would like to add to these rules, please drop me an email.
I would also like to say a big Thank You to Poppy's mum, Beth, for helping out with our Science lesson on Monday. Being a midwife, Beth very kindly agreed to help answer lots of questions during our lesson on fetal development. We were very lucky to have an expert on-hand, thank you Beth.
We have seen some super Maths this week and in English, you have used lots of interesting expanded noun phrases and speech to describe Red, Hunter and the inventor's workshop and bring your characters to life.
Saints gave us another fun PE lesson and you have all ended the week with a creative write, letting your imaginations run wild, using this picture as a starting point:
We look forward to seeing you all again next week.
Mrs Leslie & Mrs Bonnett
It's been a week of fabulously impressive work from Year 5. Despite our technical difficulties, you have all shown determination and resilience with your work and attitudes to learning. Well done and thank you to everyone.
I've been particularly impressed with your non-chronological reports on Charles Dickens this week; I loved finding out about how his childhood influenced his writing, his links with the Oxenham Arms, his inspiration for some of the characters and that he was buried in Westminster Abbey in Poets' Corner.
I also thought that your stained glass windows, depicting images of Christianity and your local environment, were really inspirational.
Below are a couple of photos so that you can see how we join-in with you at home with your learning.
I hope that you all manage to have a relaxing weekend. You certainly deserve it.
I look forward to seeing you all on Monday when we'll have a guest presenter for our Science in the afternoon ...

Welcome back to a new term and the return of home learning. I hope you've all enjoyed a relaxing festive break.
Year 5 will hopefully be moving onto Google Classroom very soon (further details will follow) which will make submitting work much easier for you, but in the meantime you can find the work for today on our blog below. Since today is our first day of home-learning, it may take you (and me!) a while to get going with everything so don't worry too much about the due times. Going forward on Google Classroom however (since I will be teaching in school as well as setting and marking), it's important that you submit to me your work by the due-times so that I can mark it during the school-day. I've tried to stick to our regular daily timetable so that you can carry out the work just as you would in a lesson at school. I hope to touch-base with you via Teams or Google Classroom at least once in the day.
Please can everybody sign-in to our class registration on Tuesday at 9.30am. The link for that can be found here.
Our Maths unit for the next few weeks will be on Multiplication and Division. Today's lesson is a revision of Year 4 work, you will need to complete the answers on a piece of paper. Your tasks are:
1. Watch the White Rose Video Link
2. Answer the questions on this worksheet. The dive deeper is optional.
Today we are focusing on how to use effective expanded noun phrases. For today's English lesson, I would like you to:
1. Watch the video clip on Screen 1
2. Have a go at the 3 whiteboard challenges on Screen 3
3. Complete this worksheet. You can choose to edit the Word document and email it to me or n a piece of paper and take a photo to send to me.
Our 'SCARF' session this week is 'thunking' about habits. Please read this document and answer the 4 questions.
While school is partially closed, we're going to be asking you all to use google classroom to complete your home learning. This will enable you to meet with your teacher and class for registration and live lessons. There is an expectation that you will complete all of the home learning set each day and submit it back to your teacher for marking. This will ensure that you will continue to learn and make good progress even though you can't come to school. Your parents will receive a username and password for each of you by email. Use these details to log into google classroom. Follow the steps below to log in for the first time.
If you have any trouble with accessing, logging in or using google classroom, please let me know via email firstname.lastname@example.org
