Greek Vases

IMG 0826

In art this term we have been designing our own vases inspired by the Ancient Greeks. We looked at what shapes they sculpted their vases as well as looking at the earthy colours and patterns they used. We found out that the Greeks often created vases with Greek myths, sports or activities painted on them. 
This week we have created our own Greek inspired vases from ModRoc and chicken wire. We used the chicken wire to create the skeleton of the vase and then used the Modroc to help sculp the shape. After that we used different shades of orange, brown and black paint to decorate our vases.

Helping at Home

In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.  It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.

In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.

Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.

Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.

PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
