Happy New Year Y5

Home » News » Happy New Year Y5

Happy New Year everyone; it was so lovely to see you all again on Monday. I hope you had a merry Christmas and that you managed to rest up, relax and have lots of fun too.

It's a new term which means a new topic, and our topic this term is the Victorians; the book we are reading is called the Peculiars by Keiran Larwood! We jumped straight into our new top on Monday by going on a fact-finding mission. We used the iPads and our knowledge of research techniques to find out as much as we could about Queen Victoria. We found some seriously interesting facts. Did you know she was only 1.52m tall (which is about the same size as our Harvey and our Emily is bigger than her already)? And, did you know that after her husband Albert died, she would only wear black which meant she wore black for 40 years! Extraordinary! We used these facts and turned them into a set of questions for a game we are creating . . . Victorian Pursuit. It will become the first page of our study work so get brushing up on your Queen Victoria facts if you want to win!

We have filled our afternoons with Victorian artists. We have been learning about William Morris and we are in the process of creating our own William Morris inspired wallpaper. So far, we have designed our wallpaper and made the printing block. Our next task is to pick our colours. L.S Lowry is the other artist we've been looking at. He was born in the Victorian era and is famous for his industrial landscapes. Did you know he only used five colours to create most of his works? We have used these five colours and experimented with blending and we have also been having a go at drawing people in the style of his matchstalk men and women.

Finally, we ended our week with a visit to the New Vic theatre where we watched the Wind and the Willows. It was amazing! You were all brilliantly behaved and were excellent ambassadors of our school! Thank you, Year 5.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,

Miss P

P.S. Thanks again for the lovely Christmas presents and Christmas cards.
