Well, another year is drawing to a close- how time flies!
In English lessons, Year Five have been finishing a unit on persuasive writing, by producing speeches. We have looked at some notable and famous speeches and then written our own versions to persuade adults that we should be allowed to…. choose our own bedtimes; have unfettered access to electronics; decide on our own pocket money allowance! Goodness me- the children have used very credible arguments and were totally convincing!
Having finished our maths units, we have been applying all our skills to a range of investigational problems, which has been good fun and has just shown how our mathematical skills have improved throughout the year.
During our art sessions we have enjoyed our mini project on animals. Following on from our close-up animal eyes, we have printed animal-skin patterns from sugar- paper blocks (called canographs) and used wax-resist and inks to create lively paintings of lizards, fish and butterflies.
The lovely weather has also meant that we have also been able to get out and play lots of rounders games. We have played variants of Danish Rounders and Bucket rounders. These games have meant that everyone scores loads of rounders and doesn’t end up sitting out doing nothing for half the session; it’s been great fun!
And now, all that needs to be said is that it’s been a great year and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. Have a wonderful holiday and stay safe this summer.
