Spring Term 2020
Our class teacher is Miss Mugglestone.
Mrs Redlich is the TA in Year 5
We have been busy creating artwork in the style of the ancient Egyptians. Here we are hard at work, exploring the use of sketching pencils, graphite and charcoal to create different portraits.
We have started our topic on the Ancient Egyptians by designing and making shadufs and mummifying oranges!
In our DT unit this term, we have learnt about the 'eat well plate' and the importance of fruits and vegetables, which contain fibre, in a healthy diet. We have designed, made and evaluated a salad for our partner.
For Anti Bullying week we have used our class novel 'Wonder' to explore our unique and special qualities. We also focussed on the theme within the book to 'choose kind' which was also the theme for Anti Bullying week this year.
We took part in the BBC teach live lesson for World Mental health Day and learnt how to keep our minds healthy. We also learnt more about what it means to have a growth mindset. Here we are practising some breathing techniques which are useful to help calm the body down.
Following on from this, we now have mental wellbeing journals in which we can record our thoughts and feelings. Our challenge is to remember something good that happened or a challenge we have overcome that day!
