Preparation for the sports morning.
Class 5 have been working on batik designs inspired by the Ancient Maya for their fabric work. First, they traced an image onto fabric from a template or their own design before going over the pattern outlines with glue. The next step will be to add colour using fabric paint before we see the end result!

Class 5 have had a busy few weeks. Among other things, we have enjoyed playing cricket in PE; had a visit from chicks; practised drawing angles in Maths and enjoyed an afternoon building shelters for Geography.

On Friday 26th March, Class 5 spent the day taking part in a virtual Geography field trip to Plymouth.
We talked about many things including: land-use; green spaces; what influence the university has had on the city and steps that have been taken to make Plymouth an attractive place to visit. Using Google maps, virtual video clips and a detailed map of the city, pupils navigated between different locations and recorded points of interest onto a map of Plymouth. They then worked in groups to carry out research on different landmarks which they presented to the class before finishing the afternoon with ice-cream!
St Piran’s Day celebrations.
Lots of children in Class 5 have enjoyed making pasties at home or at school as part of our DT project. We looked at the history of the Cornish pasty; the journey of one of the ingredients from field to fork; food miles and considered what makes a good pasty before making them. I’m sure they were all very tasty!

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.
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.
