World Book Day Illustrator Workshop with Victoria Cox

Pupils in Year 5 did amazingly well imitating one of Victoria's illustrations!

Here are some examples of the artwork produced during the day.

Bird Attack!

Zoom went mad today as a series of events unfolded!  Miss Warwick suffered from mysterious screen annotations and someone taking remote control of her computer and showing the children funny pictures of her.  It was even more shocking when we discovered that Miss McGuire was the guilty party!  Finally, a giant parrot visited Miss Warwick's house and attacked her!




This week, the children in year 5 witnessed a mummification and then had a go with their own soft toys!

Discovery Art

The children have started to design some art work entitled Discovery based on a painting (Diary of Discoveries) by Vladimir Kush.

Rivers and The Water Cycle

In Geography, the children are learning about The Nile River, features of a river and The Water Cycle. 
This is Avery's model of a river and The Water Cycle, using clay.

Where are our chairs?

The children were very shocked when they arrived on Monday to discover that they were no longer allowed their chairs to use!  This led to 400 annoyed children writing to Miss Dillon to ask for them back.  Here's Samiyah's letter:

Playground River


We started our new year off with a bang by investigating how rivers are formed.  The children were let loose with watering cans to try to recreate what happens on a rivers journey using tarpaulin.  We used chairs  to recreate the landscape and used multilink to look at the transportation and depositing of objects in a river.
