Andy Warhol-inspired Portraits
Welcome to Class 5 – this is what we look like!
Well, after a little bit of colourful alteration, anyway.

Literacy: Descriptive writing about the Dreamgiver
Here are some extracts from our work on a short animation from the Literacy Shed: The Dreamgiver.

“Like a lantern hidden by wisps of fog, the glowing moon shone down in the velvety sky over the towering brick houses. Only the gentle chirp of the crickets broke the haunting silence. In the light winter breeze, the fragile washing like swayed in front of the colossal water tower.”
[Rosie Driscoll]

“When the time was right, the beast descended out of the clouds. Gliding, he zigzagged through the brown-roofed houses and the shiny wire of the washing lines. Then he arrived at his destination…”
[Bradley Akers]

“…he stopped on a windowsill. He took a small notebook and a pencil, checked the address and put it back. He slowly nudged the door open then he peered in. Cautiously, he opened the door and stared around the room.”
[Oliver Cook]

“After scanning the room he poked in his ugly face. His bulbous nose and tinted black goggles masked his mysterious face. Then he fully opened the shutters and stood up. His skinny body towered over the sleeping children. They all lay calmly in their comfy beds. With his pointed wings, he fluttered across the room and landed next to a bed.”
[James Rennocks]

The Ancient Chinese Shang Dynasty
Following their independent research into aspects of the Shang Dynasty, Class 5 prepared and manned their stalls to display their knowledge and learning at an open afternoon on Friday 20th October 2017. They even sang some songs about the Shang Dynasty.

Class 5’s Design & Technology Project - Pencil Cases

In Class 5, we practised our sewing skills by designing and making our own pencil cases.

We came up with a variety of designs, then cut, stitched and finished them ourselves. For many of us, this included learning how to sew on buttons – always a useful skill!
