Here are 5FC in their art lesson. They are using ovals to sketch people in action.

Here are Year 5's Viking longships. They look absolutely fantastic!

Year 5 designed and built an incredible variety of bridges in DT today. Two of the bridges held 13 kgs (but Mrs Forrest didn't dare put any more on than that!).

The Visitor by Ian Serraillier

Still image for this video
The children used expression, pitch and tone to convey the spookiness surrounding The Visitor poem. They worked in groups to take on the role of William, the skeleton, the wife and the narrator; the end results were fab! We were only able to upload one example due to the large file size of the movies.

Matt and Graham from the Moorton fire station came to visit Year 5 on Tuesday to talk about fire safety in the home.

On Monday in art, we used our red, black and yellow hats to give our opinions about a range of Claude Monet's famous paintings. We couldn't believe how much some of his paintings had sold for!
