Year 5 Art Week

Year 5 children have been working really hard during Art week, investigating and getting to know Frida Kahlo. This Mexican artist was a great source of inspiration for the young artists in Year 5. They developed their artistic abilities by drawing portraits and preparing the Andy Warhol-style pieces of art. Thanks to our visiting artists’ instructions, the children could make the most of their skills. Well done!

Year 5 RE work

During RE lessons in year 5, pupils have been learning about Judaism. Thanks to the visit of an expert, Ross Johnson, we learned a lot about food, clothes and other customs, traditionally associated with Judaism. The enriching session put a smile on all the children’s faces, as they could have a first-hand experience of Jewish traditions. Year 5 would like to wholeheartedly thank both our guest and Mrs Mitchell from Phase 3 for making it happen.

5BJ Diwali Assembly

5BJ did an amazing assembly on Bandi Chor Divas (Sikh Divali). They dressed up in beautiful outfits for the performance. The assembly included included a play, singing, dancing and poetry.

The staff of Phase 4 dressed up in traditional ethnic clothes to highlight the divali atmosphere.

A big thank you from 5BJ!

Year 5 RE work

Year 5 connected Art with Religious Education by creating stained-glass style mosaic pictures (very shiny) and clay vessels (very colourful). Children meticulously prepared the works of art that can be admired below. Good work!

Voting commences for John Gulsons 2017-2018 School Council

Children had the opportunity to vote for class representatives for this years student council. Each child was given a voting slip to make their choice which they then posted into the ballot box.

Year 5 preparing for voting

Students throughout the whole school are preparing for the upcoming elections of the School Council. Two candidates from each class will try to convince other children to vote for them. The very heart of democracy, which is voting, will show who gets to represent each class as a school councillor. Year 5 prepared some interesting posters showing why they should get your vote.

 

Solar System with Year 5

Even though it’s been just one week, Year 5 started with Science and Art to create great pieces of work depicting the Solar System. The posters, created with pastels, show fantastic creativity and marvellous skills of Year 5 students. Well done 5BJ, 5SR and 5MP!
