Silly Sock Day in 5JS

On Wednesday 27th April we wore silly socks to raise awareness about autism. We completed an activity deciding which characters (some were autistic, some were not) would have the best skills to solve various problems in a comic. We all agreed that everyone has different skills, talents and weaknesses and that people behave differently in different situations. By the end of the session we had all gained a greater understanding of helping each other – whether autistic or not.

Fire fighter fun!

Yesterday year 4 had a visit from the fire service and kindly sent them to talk to reception after they had finished! They told us all about their job, the equipment they need to use and even let some children had a go with the hose! We really enjoyed it and know that if we ever see a fire we need to ring 999!

Zimbabwe Day

As you are aware, we are linked with Oasis Zimbabwe.

Monday was Zimbabwe Independence day. 

We were encouraged to come to school wearing the colours from the Zimbabwe flag.

   

  

We learnt all about animals that live in Zimbabwe and had a great time team building in our house groups: lions, zebras, elephants or giraffes.

   
    
   
Then we had a go at sketching the animals before we used the IPADS to find out interesting information about them.

   
   
Aminah A – “I found out that lions are carnivores, which means that they only eat meat.”

Emaan – “Giraffes have long tongues.”

Amina R – “Most giraffes are about 5 m tall.”

Jumaal – “Zebras can run fast.”

Every Child Is An Artist – Spring Exhibition Video

Every Child Is An Artist – Visual Arts from Mercurial Dance on Vimeo.

At the end of last term we celebrated the great work the children did with our artists, Elaine, Claire, Faith, Emma and Jayne. Our exhibition took place throughout the school and this short film shares some of the amibitions about how the project worked and what the children made.

Our theme for the term was ‘Our Community’ and we explored this in different ways with each class, using different media including clay to make ceramic totems, found objects, recycled materials, and screen printing.
