Max, Calum, Scott and Thomas recently showed off their guitar playing skills in class. They have been practising lots with their tutor Josh. We were especially impressed by their talented rendition of Van Morrison's Brown-eyed girl!
Mrs Watson's visit.
Mrs Watson was our Year 5 teacher, and we were very excited when she called in to see us last week. We tried to be really quiet, because Mrs Watson's beautiful baby daughter was fast asleep!
WINTER ART and CHRISTMAS FUN
During the month of December, we were very busy. As a class, we took part in our Carol Service where we told the story of the wise men's visit to the newborn King. We all wore our impressive homemade crowns! Some of our class also played instruments and helped to narrate the Christmas story.
We learnt about Kandinsky, a famous artist, and we created our own interpretations of his art work based on circles. We really enjoyed producing this art work, and we have had many compliments on our work! Have a look at our photos to see our fantastic wall display!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year, and we had so much fun in school leading up to our holidays. Browse our pictures to see some of the art and craft which we completed.
Alex and Charlotte also treated us to some seasonal music on the violin and cello. Well done girls!
Our topic this term is Space. We recently enjoyed a visit to Armagh Planetarium. Have a look at our photos to see just how much fun we had! We now know lots of facts about our Solar System- ask us some questions and you will be amazed at our knowledge!
Our first topic this year is Amazing Africa. We have been investigating this continent of contrasts. In art, we have drawn mud huts using charcoal and made miniature mud huts from clay. We have also painted African sunset scenes. In ICT we researched African animals and produced powerpoints to present our findings. We have been singing African songs, playing African instruments, and we have even tried some African dance moves in our PE lessons! As part of our talking and listening, we acted out a playscipt which helped us to better understand school life in Africa.
We were so happy to welcome the Voices of Africa choir to our school in September. The children had travelled all the way from Uganda. We really enjoyed the show they performed for us. We even got the chance to play with the children at break time - look at our photos to see lots of happy faces!
