This week in Art, the children have been learning about Tints, Tones and Shades. They learnt how to mix coloured paints to create tints and shades of colours. The children worked independently and created beautiful pieces of art work!
In Year 5, our Design and Technology project has been to create something that utilises pneumatics. Using tubing and two syringes, we were able to create a simple pneumatic system to push and pull. The children worked excellently in groups to create their own unique creations.
Utilising the Learning Hub space, Year 5 have been setting up boards for each other to test their knowledge of multiples, factors, prime and square numbers. Two children went head to head to find the numbers first!
It has been great getting the Year 5/6 boys football season going although every game has been either raining or the game played on a boggy pitch. Two games for the team so far, the first was away to Stivichall. A tough first game with Ernesford leading 1-0 for the majority of the match, thankfully a mad couple of minutes
Year 5 Dodgeball was the first competition this half term. We were able to take 2 teams to the AT7 Centre with a team chosen from each class. This was a values competition, after each game we scored the other school on their Respect, Honesty and Teamwork. Our children represented the school with all of these values. A brilliant morning
The Year 5/6 Girls Football season started with a tournament at Binley Woods Primary School. We were invited by Onside Coaching to the 10 team tournament. We were put into 2 groups of 5. We started with 2 tough games against Dunchurch and Paddox Primary School, the girls worked really hard to win both games 1-0. A very impressive start
