We have started work looking at the short story below. We have looked at camera angles, sequencing and how to show feelings without saying the word. In the coming weeks, we will be writing a detailed scene for part of the story. We will aim to create emotion and imagery for our readers.
Monday 10th January - Maths *NEW LEARNING*
In Maths we have begun to learn the method of short division. We have started by using counters to help us visualise the method and writing on the tables! This gave us the opportunity to practise our new method and understand it fully.
Here is a link to show you our new method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLze82Zcc4Y

Autumn Term 2
Wednesday 24th November - INTECH!
We had an incredible time with Year 6 at Intech today and learnt so much more about space and other exciting Science things! We loved the planetarium and got to see our solar system up close, as well as zooming out to explore the galaxy ... and beyond! Whilst there, we took part in a workshop and learnt about a new satellite that will be launched in to space next month. It is going to be able to take photos further in to space than even the Hubble telescope! Keep an eye out for the link NASA may post to watch this incredible piece of history making!

Year 5 Art Lessons
On Thursday's we have been practising different skills to improve our sketching technique. We have learnt different mark making techniques and how to use these to create depth and texture to our drawings. Here is how we are getting on so far ...
We have begun learning about the artist Rembrandt and studying some of his portraits.
We have created close observation of Rembrandt's work preparing for creating our own portraits in his style. We looked closely at the different marks he made, the shading technique and where the single light source was focussed.
To celebrate Harvest this year, we have learnt a Harvest Shanty - we hope you enjoy it! We have also designed and created our own Zentangle pumpkins in black and white and on a water-coloured background. We thought about how we could blend the colours to help show the shapes of the segments.
Happy Harvest Everyone!
