Today in art, we looked at another artist, Hermann Rorschach from Switzerland, who developed the inkblot test which is used to explore people’s personalities. We used his method to create some artwork of our own.

For art this term, our focus is on every picture tells a story. On Tuesday, we evaluated and analysed a mural by the artist Banksy. We discovered that the mural did not include British values so we altered the mural to make it more positive and included some of our wonderful British values.

Today, year 5 participated in a market. In the preparation leading up to it, children made posters, bunting and sandwich boards to advertise.
On the day of the market, the children worked as a team to prepare the items to be sold: fruit skewers, cheesecakes and butterfly bags.
Take a look at their amazing efforts.
In SPaG this week, we revised contracted words and had a go at completing a tarsia.

The children had their first introductory session today and enjoyed looking at the different types of fruit and vegetables.
In English this week, the children have been learning how to write a setting description. The children used a video stimulus (The Lighthouse) and have used many literary features to create an image in the reader's mind.
