Greek Pottery You'd be forgiven for thinking we'd unearthed some Ancient Greek pottery, such is the level of detail within year five's work. They have tirelessly (and painstakingly at times) created their own Greek pots which have been on display for all to see. From inception of ideas - sketching Greek patterns - to [...]

3... 2... 1... Go! We've had an excellent afternoon in year five today. Our classroom was abuzz with sticking Sellotape, careful cutting and gloopy glueing. Firstly, our intrepid egg astronauts needing bringing to life (in some cases they arrived pre-painted!) After, the construction of our final parachutes and capsules was on the agenda. Finally, [...]

Move over Michelangelo As you know, our topic this half term has been all about time. We've studied the history of clocks, learned how to read, interpret and complete timetables in maths lessons and have used the book, 'Strangeworlds Travel Agency' as a stimulus for much of our writing. Art, of course, is of no [...]

Great Gymnasts Throughout this term, year five have benefitted from the skills and knowledge of Mr. Clarke in our P.E. lessons.
