Year 5 Cricket Festival
This term our topic is France. We will be looking at the human and physical geography of France and comparing our geographical similarities and differences between different regions in France and the UK.
In English, we will be looking at diaries and using the book 'Henry's Freedom Box' to write a diary account from the main character's point of view. We will also be finding out about Rosa Parks and writing newspaper reports.
In Maths, we will be rounding, comparing and ordering decimals, solving problems with money, involving all four operations and converting between different units of time. We would be very grateful if you could continue to support your child with learning times tables, division facts and number bonds to develop and improve mental maths skills.
Biennale Art morning
Year 4/5 had a fun art morning with local artist Isobel Denton. They were taking part in different activities provided by WOVEN: Innovation in Textiles as part of the Our Biennale Festival. The children watched a video by artist and printer Clare Grace and then took part in an activity using natural inks (made from coffee) and handmade brushes to create painted flowers. They also took part in a bundle dyeing workshop where they learnt about the techniques and processes involved in natural dyeing and created their own mix of natural dyes to explore colour and make prints.
The children’s work will be displayed, as part of different art projects, at the Piazza Shopping Centre, Huddersfield, in the Our Biennale Finale weekend on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th June ’21.
Grow to School Project
Year 4/5 had a busy time in the garden with the Grow to School project. We learned all about different types of soil, planted potatoes, leeks, onions and beans, added manure to the raised beds and collected our own compost from our compost bins.
