In Year 5, we have recently visited Yorkshire Museum to learn about the Ancient Greeks. We completed a workshop where we had to weave, role play, build a temple and complete the long jump.
In Year 5, we have been learning about the sculptor Henry Moore. We then had to re-create some art like the artist Andy Goldsworthy.
In Year 5, we are creating a dance all about a Greek myth, Theseus and the Minotaur. We are using our bodies and movements to retell significant parts of the story.
We knew a cube was made up from 6 faces, but when we peeled it apart we discovered there was a whole number of nets that could be created.
As part of our Science topic ‘Earth and Space’, the children had a visit from a mobile planetarium. The children were able to sit inside and watch videos projected onto the walls and ceiling of the planetarium. The children all loved seeing the journey into space and what all the planets look like from a different perspective. Consequently, the children will use what they learnt in their upcoming work in Science.
As part of our RE topic ‘What do people believe in Hemsworth?’, the children had the opportunity to walk around the local community and look at the different places of worship. Whilst on our walk, the children visited St Helen’s church. During their time at the church, the children were able to look at the key aspects which make it a place of worship and how they link to the religion. The children also had opportunity to ask lots of questions. We will be using what we have learnt in our future lessons.
Over the past two weeks, the children have been starting to learn the necessary skills for creating their space buggy to move. This week, the children have started to learn how to use the cutting equipment safely to begin their frames. I look forward to seeing the end product.
Last week, the children had a very important job of leading their own class assembly in front of the rest of the school. The children did an excellent job of teaching their peers all about e-safety and showing off their work. The children led quizzes and games, introduced their websites, acted out e-safety scenarios and also gave their top tips for staying safe online. Well done Year 5!
