Another Term has flown by and in 5CM we have continued to work incredibly hard both at home and in school. This term, in art we have been looking at still life. We have used a range of mediums and imitated a range of artists to create our own still life images. Take a look at some of the gorgeous paintings we have created so far!
Since our return at school we have been listening to and appraising Motown music – we have really enjoyed listening to a range of artists! We have been practising and learning a song from this genre and have had lots of fun learning it. We are beginning to sing without the backing music, take a look at our rendition of “Dancing in the Street.”
5CM have been learning all about living things and their habitats. We have learned about what characteristics all living things must have; we then looked closely at a range of different objects to investigate. Children at home looked carefully at germs and created posters on how to stop the spread of germs. Similarly, the children in school completed a yeast experiment to see if yeast was a living organism. Take a look at a range of science activities we have completed this term!
This term, in Art, we are creating clay dragon eyes. So far we have been practising different drawing techniques and using these to sketch pictures and patterns that we can see in pictures. Take a look at some of our fabulous work so far.
As you saw from our previous Art work, we designed dragon eyes by using different shading techniques to add depth and texture. In the final week of Term 2, we have been practising our use of clay techniques. We moulded our shapes carefully and once we were happy with our clay, we painted them to make them really stand out - We hope you like them!
This term, we have been focussing on adding description to our writing - we have used dictionaries and thesauruses to improve vocabulary. This week we used a clip from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to add suspense before the battle. We are really proud of the work that we have done.
In science, we have been studying the properties of materials. We have been conducting an experiment for Mr Mason’s staycation to the Lake District and thinking about which material he should have for his coat. Here are some pictures of us experimenting different materials to see which is the most permeable, flexible and best for temperature change.
We are lucky to currently have Future Stars taking us for PE throughout Thursday afternoons. This term we are working on our balance in the gym while practising our dribbling and passing skills in basketball. It’s been great fun!
