In Autumn Term, Shakespeare class went on a trip to Blake school to learn some new languages. When we arrived, we were treated to a French breakfast and sorted into our groups for the morning. Then we went to different parts of the school, where we were taught lots of exciting languages by children from Blake. Some of the languages were were taught were: Russian, Afrikaans, Polish, Italian, Mandarin, Greek, German and Turkish!
In the first Summer Term, Year 5 have been exploring our local environment as part of our "all about me" topic. We have used maps and field sketches to look at our school site and then we have learned about the life cycles of a variety of different animals.
We have used "i can animate" on the iPads to create stop motion animations. First we explored using different materials to create effects, and then we chose our favourite to create an animation showing the life cycle of a living thing.
