The children in Year 5 have really impressed with their continued enthusiasm for learning and drive to achieve this week. This has been particularly notable in maths where they have just finished learning about properties of shape and are starting their new topic, Position and Direction.
In English, the children enjoyed listening to ‘Nolwandle, Girl of The Waves’ and creating story maps to aid their re-telling of the tale. The range of descriptive language that the children used when describing the ocean scene was particularly impressive.
Continuing with the African theme, Year 5 had a fantastic time at their African mask making and dance workshop. They learnt about the significance of masks and dance in African culture and showed great enthusiasm, rhythm and unison when performing.
They also enjoyed a trip to the Stanley Picker gallery where they created some very detailed collages.
With the KS2 production fast approaching, Year 5 have impressed us with their resilience and dedication to perfecting their performance. They are looking forward to showing it to all of their loved ones.
