Class 5 have been making stop motion animations over the past 5 weeks. They started by creating story-boards before making 2D animations. They then went on to create characters, props and backgrounds to record a 3D animation.

Class 5 used oil pastels to create these beautiful pictures of the Northern Lights. They looked at some examples first and experimented with the pastels, creating small swatches. Following this they learnt the techniques a step at a time. They were really pleased with the results. 

 

In Literacy, we are going to be writing our own explanations based on Wallace and Gromit’s Cracking Contraptions- Class 5 enjoyed watching some short clips of the contraptions in action! We have looked at the structural and language features of explanation writing and will be producing a blueprint of our machine designs before writing our final explanation text over the next 2 weeks. 
 
Today in PSHE we discussed racism and what it means. The children designed a ribbon that shows that we need to fight racism. 
This week Class 5 have been making Orrey’s to track the movements of the planets. 

Class 5 have been enjoying fencing lessons. So far we have been working on our footwork as well as learning the basic positions of: the salute; the on guard stance and the lunge. Over the coming weeks we will be developing our skills further and taking part in fencing bouts.
