In PE this half term, the children have been lucky to have a qualified gymnastics coach in to teach them. They have created individual floor routines and enjoyed using a variety of apparatus in their lessons.
Thank you to all the parents who were able to visit us during our Chinese New Year themed art week. The children really enjoyed designing and making their origami fans with you.
The children have been learning about Henri Matisse in art. They have exploring his technique ‘painting with scissors’ to form large scale insect pictures inspired by Matisse’s ‘The Snail’ artwork.
The children did a fantastic job performing a version Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in our Year 5 assembly!
Within their humanities lessons this term, the children have started learning about the Ancient Mayans! They have created fearsome mosaic Mayan masks in art and experimented with tribal patterns and designs.
The children did an amazing job writing and performing their own pieces of performance poetry in English this term.
During their Mayan topic, the children had the opportunity to complete a patterned piece of weaving. The children exercised their patience and concentration to complete some excellent work.
Remembrance week was a huge success at St George’s. The year 5 children wrote poems to show their respect to the soldiers that lost their lives in service of their countries. Thank you to all the parents who joined us to make poppies and charcoal drawings to mark Remembrance Day.
Mathletics is a fantastic website through which the children can compete in fun maths games with other children from across the globe, earning certificates as they progress. The children have each been given a login to take home but should they misplace it, please don’t hesitate to ask for another.
