Please note, that from January 2024, we will be sharing our learning, news and information with parents via Class Dojo.
In our music lessons, we have been learning how to play the recorder. In Y5, we have focused on learning the notes G,A and B and playing tunes with those notes. This has enabled us to practise reading the music and playing together as an ensemble. We will continue with the recorder during lessons throughout the year, using it in our improvisations and compositions in other units.
Have a look at the recordings of us playing in the video section of the website. The link is below
Our DT topic this term was to design and create a stuffed toy. This involved evaluation examples of stuffed toys, designing our own and creating a template then using a variety of stitches to join the material together and add details such as applique, beads and buttons. We are delighted with the final products - there are some potential future textile artists in Y5!
In Art this term, we explored mixed media art and the work of the artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman. We then created our own mixed-media portraits and displayed them in the Year 5 corridor.
