An exciting morning at KPMG where Y5 took part in a Maths Masterclass delivered by The Royal Institution. We had great fun recreating Islamic Geometric Patterns to celebrate National Numeracy Day.
Year 5 had a great day out watching a performance of Hamlet at the National Theatre. Afterwards, we had our lunch with fantastic views of the river Thames.
Year 5 are learning about the use of word play in poetry. Coinciding with National Poetry Week, the children demonstrated fantastic team work writing their poems and practising performing their poems with expression to captivate their audience.
In art, Year 5 were learning about the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The children used a viewfinder to select areas of his paintings and enlarge and transfer these onto their own artwork. They focussed on the strong naturally flowing lines that feature in Hundertwasser's work.
'In art, year 5 were learning about how to create their unique prints using the 'reduction' technique.
We looked at abstract landscape pictures by Hundertwasser and made our own viewfinders to select a section of the image.
We have been practising performing poems linked to our science learning.
In DT we have been learning about bolognese sauces. First we found out about the journey of a tomato and then we tasted two different sauces before choosing ingredients to create our adapted sauces. Chilli flakes and mushrooms were very popular!
We used Google Maps to look at the bird’s eye view of different landscapes. We then created 3D models.
We held our school council elections.
Well done to Dawud and Abiir who have been chosen to represent year 4!
