Israel Fair

On Thursday Year5 presented the Israel fair to the school. They were  busy preparing the items to be sold at the fair during lesson time. We sold the following items; mugs, vases, ceramic dishes, tea light holders, glasses, egg cups, badges, bracelets, wind mills, key rings, book marks, ceramic tiles, wooden hearts (fridge magnets), purses and rulers. 

They all worked exceptionally hard, teaching about the different aspects on Israel, a few were; virtual tour of Israel, Shalome Sesame, science experiment (the Dead Sea), Israeli dancing, Israeli games, food tasting  and  the souvenier shop. 

At the end of the day the children gave feedback on how their day went; all said it was a great day and enjoyed showing and explaining all about Israel. v That it was very tiring to teach all day.Loved sampling the food and decorating the souveniers to sell.

Here are a few photos of Year 5 just before the fair opened. Enjoy!!!!

Queens birthday with Year 5

Today we decided to give the Queen a Year 5 birthday make-over! 

We first looked at the history of Pop Art, taking a look at the work of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and many more.

To create our art work we used a mix of Media, oil pastels, felt tips and crayons, as well as pens from home.

Pop Art is meant to be fun, witty, colourful and young - just like Year 5!  

 

Take a look at some of the fantastic art work Year 5 produced today.

Refugee Day with Year 5

Today is  'Refugee Day', and to mark the day Year five watched a presentation from the 'School Council' in assembly, following a family that fled Syria and the fighting, to seek a safer place to live.

Year five then watched a film showing a girl who was all alone in her country and how she had to survive. She went from place to place until one kind family accepted her into their home. The task set for Year 5 was to have a rucksack and to pack it with the things they wanted to take on their journey. We had everything from; teddy bears, torches,batterries, food, money, clothes, pillows,compass,bottled water,sleeping bag, blankets and photographs.

Alot of the children couldn't imagine what it would be like to be on their own, with no friends, no family, how would they survive? A good class discussion took place to hear their opinions and ideas.

Thankfully this was just a lesson but the children value each day with their families and friends. Here are some pictures of their ideas .100 3976
