Year 5 - Spain
Welcome to Spain class. We are in Year 5 and our teacher is Miss Walker. Miss Adcock and Miss Maxam are our Teaching Assistants.
As part of our Science unit on properties of materials, we had a great session yesterday seeing which groups could make the cleanest water from a lovely, muddy mixture of soil, sand and water!
In Year 5 our topic is Stone Age to Iron Age. This week we have been looking at cave paintings, researching cave art and learning some interesting facts about why and how people created the paintings. Today we had a go at doing our own versions to go on the walls of our ‘cave’.
We have been learning about Romero Britto, a Brazilian artist, and designing our own self-portraits in his style. They are really colourful with a lot of sections and patterns - and he often draws hearts on cheeks! We're creating a display of all of the portraits in our corridor - come and have a look at them!
We were delighted to see Spain class today and have enjoyed hearing all about their summer holidays. Many adventures were had. It is going to be a fun year with lots of exciting learning taking place in Year 5 and we look forward to sharing it with you in our blog.
