News and photographs
Over the last 2 weeks, Year 5 have been running/walking/jogging 2.6 miles of the playground to complete the virtual London Mini Marathon. With race numbers in hand, they had to complete at least 16 laps of the daily mile track to achieve their goal. We are so proud of all of them! Medals are on the way and will be given out as soon as they arrive. Well done Year 5!
P.S Coach Miah ran the virtual London Marathon…a whole 26.2 miles. A big well done to him, too!
Take One Picture
Over the last 2 weeks we have been looking at the Battle of San Romano, a painting created by Paolo Ucello during the Italian Renaissance. We have made many cross curricular links in our English and History by taking on the characters of 4 figures form the painting and writing a character profile and diary entry for their point of view. We also wrote a non-chronological report on the Italian Renaissance…they were fantastic! In History, we spent time comparing the battle scene in the painting to a battle scene from the 21st century; how different the weapons, armour and vehicles were! Using different mediums, we have recreated elements of the picture across the fortnight. Using pastels, water colours and paint we have created our own visions and perspectives on Ucello’s work.
Take a look at some of the superb work we have produced over the last 2 weeks.
