In Y5 we have been busy in our Art lessons looking at ‘Still Life’. We have been having lots of fun experimenting with different mediums: pencils, pastels and charcoal.
This half term we are looking at ‘Forces’ and studying the effects of gravity on everyday objects. We have learnt about Isaac Newton and his discoveries. We had lots of fun investigating the force of everyday objects in the classroom using Newton metres.
Design & Technology
Out topic this half term is ‘Biscuit Making’. In preparation for our Christmas biscuits, we have been looking at the most popular biscuits on the market and we’ve even done some taste testing. To tie in with our topic, we have made some beautiful salt dough ornaments to decorate our classroom tree as well as the tree in the school hall.
Year 5 loved having the Code Bugs in school and are now experts at programing them to flash and scroll images.
