Summer Term 

Visiting sculptor Neil Wood

14th June 2022


Today Year 5 enjoyed a visit by the amazing sculptor Neil Wood. He showed us how to create our own tile. We made our designs using a range of junk materials, which we pressed into the clay. We then cast plaster of paris over our work. When the plaster was dry, we peeled off the clay and admired our plaster tiles. Thank you for an amazing day Neil!



Wow what an amazing day!

We met Lucius (Andy) and had a guide to Roman armour and tactics. Then we staged some battles of our own; Romans vs Barbarians.

Back in the classroom we used our archaeological and investigational skills to uncover actual historical artefacts (items which had been recovered by metal detectorists).

Then in the afternoon after a Q and A session we learned how to play a range of Roman games, Ludus, Five Lines and Three Mens Morris.

We have all learned so much and had a great day!

Music 11 May

We are looking at 'motifs' in music. Motifs are small sections of music, that are often repeated in a tune. The term is particularly used in classical music. In Beethoven’s ‘Fifth Symphony’ he uses the motif as the building block to construct the music, – duh-duh-duh-duuuuuum!

Beethoven's 5th Symphony

This is the first movement of Beethoven's 5th symphony. Composed between 1804 and 1808.

Can you hear the repeated motif?

Spring Term

DT Making Soft Toys

This week we have designed and made our own soft toys using felt. We have learned how to sew a blanket stitch as well as how to use needle threaders (which were really useful!)

We are really proud of all our hard work - don't they look great!

25 March Planetarium Visit

Wow what a great morning!

Dave from Auriga Astronomy was fantastic. We were all very excited to enter the planetarium, and the shows were amazing. First we went on a journey around the solar system, and then we found out about mans missions to the Moon.

We also found out about the Artemis program at NASA which is due to launch in the next few months.
