On this page, you will find links to websites that your child can use to practise their times tables and other extra activities they could do at home. There is also a topic newsletter to let you know what we will be learning about in class this half term.

We have been busy comparing different poems and looking at their formation in preparation for studying the poem 'The Malfeasance'.

Fabulous homework completed by Year 5 on their Tudor project during the autumn half term holiday.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Frida Kahlo

As part of our Mexico topic, we have been learning about an influential Mexican artist and icon: Frida Kahlo. We have been researching her life and work and why she is an important, significant figure in Mexican history and culture.

In Literacy, we went on a learning journey which concluded with us writing a biography about Frida Kahlo. As she was famous for her self-portraits, we recreated our own Kahlo-inspired self-portrait in our Art lessons. We used our art skills to carefully sketch one half of her face, focusing on proportions, perspective and detail. In Topic, we explored Kahlo as a symbol of strength and resilience, delving into her life and analysing some of her artwork. Our task was to work in small groups to create a short presentation/speech/debate that tries to persuade the rest of the class that Frida Kahlo’s work is more influenced by either pain or passion. This links to one of her famous quotes we have been looking at: “Passion is the bridge that takes you from pain to change”. We worked hard to compile evidence for our arguments and then took it in turns to confidently present our work to the rest of the class, focusing in particular on our speech and language skills.
