Year 5

Welcome to Term 3

This term we will be concentrating on our  Creative  City curriculum. This will lead us to be Artists, Historians and Philosophers.

We will be basing our art on the Mayan and Egyptian civilizations, and there particular belief systems. Alongside this the children will have an opportunity to consider what important beliefs they have.

We are pleased to have been chosen, for the first time, to participate in  a Shakespeare Workshop run by the Tobacco Factory. In addition there will be a follow up Art Workshop. 


In line with the new school policy we ask that the children bring in their Reading Records every day.
Children should practice their times tables at home, if you need your Rock Stars password please let me know.

We had a fabulous time at Bristol Museum appreciating the art and understanding how artists used the images to infer meaning.

We have been baking for Children in Need and marbling as part of our Space Art project.

On a beautiful day Year 5 had a very successful tag rugby taster session.

Year 5 recorded predictions on iPads regarding what reactions would take place and if these changes were reversible or irreversible.

We were visited by two ladies, one who runs a night shelter in Bristol and another who had once lived in 5he streets. The children were able to ask lots of questions and respectively and attentively listened to what both ladies said.

Year 5 finished off there study of homelessness by building our own shelters and imagining what it would be like to live in them permanently.
