Welcome to Year 5&6. Our class teacher is Mrs Machin and our Senior Teaching Assistant is Mrs Bainbridge. Our topic this half term is "Raging Rivers". English work is based around the book "Tuesday" by David Wiesner and our whole class reading book is “The day the screens went blank” by Danny Wallace. Maths will be covering place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (including negative numbers, inverse operations, multi-step problems, factors, multiples, prime numbers, square/cube numbers) in addition to the appropriate year group KIRFS.
Impressonism - Water Lillies
We have been learning about Claude Monet and his famous Water Lillies painting. We followed instructions to make these wonderful 3D water lillies, using paper plates, tissue paper and coloured paper. Our classroom is certainly looking bright and colourful. An amazing job from everyone.
We have been learning about Georges Seurat in art who was famous for painting in the pointilism style.
We sketched our own river pictures then painted them using cotton buds and creating lots and lots of dots. We also talked about the colour wheel and how to create different shades of colours. From afar the dots blend together to make some wonderful and unique paintings. The display looks very effective (even the spiders in the sink admire it!).

Year 5&6 took part in a workshop called “mates in mind” delivered by Carlisle Eden mind. It helped us understand our own mental health and how to look after it. It also gave us ideas about how we can help our friends if their mental health is suffering. We all feel we have learnt a lot.
