Mr Sheffield

Term 5

Term 5 has been busy for 5ML. We have been linking our writing to our topic on ancient Greece, including creating our own Greek myth. Everyone should be proud of the incredible effort they put into crafting their sentences and adding lots of suspense to keep the reader hooked.


Everyone really enjoyed our trip to see Matilda at the Bristol Hippodrome. It left us with lots of questions about how they achieved all of the amazing visual effects. Not only that, we have also had the opportunity to make bread this term as part of our DT learning. We thought carefully about how to make our bread appealing both in terms of the appearance and its taste. I was impressed by the creativity and ambition everyone showed in their final product.

Term 4

In art, Year 5 the children are learning about life cycles and 10 eggs were brought into school.

We watched them hatch and then were able to hold them.

In art, Year 5 made rainforest animals and people in the style of Giacometti, using wire and ModRoc. Although the finished products did not necessarily turn out as good as we wanted, they were great fun to make and decorate.


Also, for PE, 5ML were lucky enough to participate in rugby sessions with coaches from Bristol Bears!

Term 3

In art, Year 5 made Norman shields using collage techniques. We had to use a design specification to make them look as authentic as possible.

Term 2

In Design and Technology, Year 5 made Anglo-Saxon houses from wood, card and straws. We had to use a design specification to make them look as authentic as possible.

Term 1

In science, Year 5 made Plasticine boats to investigate why some objects float. Our first attempts were not very successful but they improved when we tried again.
