Yr5 have had a great afternoon at Leeds Art Gallery. We explored an interesting installation by the artist Sonia Boyce and then we had a wonderful printing workshop. Within the hour we had created our own printing blocks and use them to print with some amazing results.
We have been looking at air resistance and investigating whether the size of a parachute effects the time it takes to fall. Our predictions were mostly correct.
We were looking at violence within relationships. We discussed what make this happen and how we might try and change an outcome so that situations ended with a more peaceful outcome. We carefully used freezeframing to help us discuss how different people might be affected.
We are working on our cricket skills this term with our new coach, Jordan. Sadly the great British weather did not play ball so we had to go in the hall but lots of fun was still had.
We had the Leeds road safety team in today to teach us how to travel around by scooter safely.
Today the whole school took to the polling station to cast their vote for this year's School Councilors. Congratulations to Krishiv and Lallana for being voted Class 5's representatives.
