This week, year 5 have been introduced to the artist Claude Monet. The children have been practicing mixing colours to create a colour palette inspired by the artist. Look at the work they have created!
Today in year 5, the children were learning all about the planets and their characteristics.
They all took part in a game of Top Trumps which tested their knowledge of all the relevant information such as: the size of planet, its temperature and how many moons it has. It was fabulous lesson, and they learnt such a lot of important facts
This week year 5 have started their new Science topic of Earth and Space. They have been looking at how the sun affects the Earth, and how times zones are created. They made their own Earth models from ping pong balls and used torches to emulate the sun. It showed some very interesting results.
Today Year 5 have been discussing ways to communicate using emojis, memes and gifs. They have a really good understanding of why these things are used and have designed some fabulous emojis of their own. Take a look!
Year 5 have been looking at marriage and weddings in RE, thinking about joy and how different faiths celebrate their marriages.
Last week we looked at weddings in Islam and this week we are looking at Christian weddings. There are lots of similarities and quite a few differences too. Most of the differences come from culture rather than faith. They are differences that are expressed in different countries.
It was very interesting to discuss the weddings, the meanings of the verses said in the ceremonies and what they mean.
Ceremonies show commitment to each other and a promise that each person tries to keep.
We even watched a short part of Prince Williams wedding. Here it is if you would like to watch some of it too.
