Sainsbury Centre trip
Year 5 (and Year 6) enjoyed a fascinating day at the Sainsbury Centre (UEA) on Tuesday 28th November. We had a guided tour of the centre, where we learnt about the history of the centre, some of the artefacts, sculptures and paintings on display. We took our sketch books to capture some of the fabulous sculptures and also made lovely clay sculptures using Maya inspiration.
During the second half of the Autumn term we will be learning about the Ancient Maya civilisation in Topic, as well as improving our global geography skills. In English we will learning about Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, then learn about Playscripts. In Maths, we will be concentrating on multiplication and division, finishing the term looking at statistics.
Year 5 - Making our own e-safety DVD.
We worked with an external company to make a quiz-style DVD about e-safety. We were all assigned specific roles: quiz team members; directors, cameramen and all the other production support roles. We had a fabulous time and used our e-safety knowledge to great effect!
Welcome to Year 5!
We are looking forward to a packed year of learning and this half term our Topic is 'Once Upon a Time... When the World Began'. The document below outlines the first half term's learning.
