This week we have been working with line graphs. We found drawing line graphs challenging during the week but we all managed to successfully represent data on a line graph we had drawn in our books.
On Tuesday, we had Spanish Day. During lesson time, we had a go at a range of Spanish activities linked to numbers, colours and comparing Spain to England. We also got the opportunity to have a go at some Spanish Dancing! In the afternoon, we were inspired by Picasso. We had a go at painting in his style.

This week in Art, we practiced mixing powder paint. We recreated our own versions of one of Henri Matisse’s works. We also used oil pastel in our design. We were amazed that the water based paint did not cover the oil pastel and we discussed why.

Yesterday was a very exciting day in year 5! We were invited to trial a taster session with Pie Corbett! The session involved different interactive activities linked to Talk for Writing. We all loved being able to post our ideas online as we came up with them and interact with Pie himself! Mrs Fox was particularly excited when her sentence was read out, although Pie did pronounce Barwick incorrectly which made us all laugh!
This week has been assessment week in school. Everyone has worked really hard to work through their assessments. Well done everyone for your hard work this week.
