Lots of concentration required when making our pompom robins.

Thank you so much for your kind, wool donations. They were greatly appreciated!

We have looked at the work of Bridget Riley in art and practised making our own 'Op Art'. We hope that it doesn't make your eyes go too blurry!

In P.E. this week we took part in orienteering. We had to mark objects on to our maps of the school grounds and swap our maps with a partner team, to find the 'hidden' items. We had lots of fun!

Our Worship this week (beg. 5/10/20) is looking at the importance of rules and instructions. 

It is important that we:

Respect and

Understand the rules, so that we can

Live with

Everyone

Safely and smile.

We have also looked at Road Safety and the Hedgehogs Road Safety Campaign - Stayin Alive was a lovely reminder of how to do this:

Please bring in any discarded batteries to the collection tub at the front office, as we hope to enter the 'Big Battery Hunt' competition (which closes on the 4th December 2020).

Next half term, as part of our Nature Journal work, we will be planting bulbs to observe how plants grow. I will be extremely grateful if you could please donate a packet of flowering bulbs e.g. daffodils, crocus, tulips, hyacinths etc.

We will quarantine these over half term and plant on return to school. Many thanks.

Take a look at some of our beautiful poppy artwork.

We investigated rubbing different surfaces using oil pastels. Influenced by Georgia O'Keeffe's large flowers, we've drawn large poppies, linked to our History work, using rubbings to add texture.

Have a look at what learning is planned for Year 5 this half term.
