Year 5 sports competition
Featherstone Rovers led a sports morning with our children based on the athletics events they had learnt about over the previous weeks. It was great to see everyone taking part and having a go!
The children created lanterns and read about the meaning behind Remembrance Day.
The year group worked hard to learn a poem as a group and perform it using actions. All the teachers were impressed with their efforts. You can view two examples below.
Children in Need
The children donated money and dressed up in yellow or spots to celebrate Children in Need.
See the images below of artwork based on mountains and the Northern Lights:
The Children have sent in their illuminated letter creations as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic. There were lots of impressive designs! Have a look at the collection:
Lockdown art 2: Anglo-Saxon brooches
Over 30 children sent in their Anglo-Saxon brooch designs. View the slideshow below:
Screen Free Friday
Each week we are encouraging children to do tasks that are away from the screen. The focus this week was all about birds, but some also did activities such as baking. The children were given a selection of tasks such as: making a graph or tally chart based on some birdwatching, creating an information page or drawing a picture of a bird. A lot of impressive work can be seen below:
Children's Mental Health week
We asked Year 5 to create a poster for Children's Mental Health week. There were lots of fantastic ideas sent in!
World Book Day
See pictures below of the children dressed up as characters from books. Can you guess who they are?
