Thursday 1st April 2021 – Year 5 History and Art

Filed under: Art,History,PE,Year 5 @ 10:13 am

As we’ve come to the end of term, we have turned our attention to History and the Ancient Civilizations. The four Civilizations that Year 5 have been researching are the Indus Valley, Ancient Sumer, Ancient Egypt and the Shang Dynasty.  Using Timelines, computers to research and comparison charts, the children engaged in this unit of work in small groups to collaboratively gain an understanding of the different Civilizations. They discovered these Civilizations have been instrumental in many inventions that we still use today. Why not ask your child? We’re sure they’ll be willing to tell you all about what they’ve discovered.

Additionally, this week we’ve been continuing our Pointillism in Art. In groups of four children have been working together to produce a pointillism scene featuring French monuments and scenery. It has been encouraging to witness the children put into practice the techniques they’ve learnt to produce such stunning works of art.

We also took part in our final gymnastics session. This involved the use of travelling over different pieces of equipment. The equipment this week included the beam and box tops. The year group has enjoyed this unit and look forward to seeing Miss Jones again in the summer for athletics.

After what has been a hectic term we hope you have a wonderful Easter break and look forward to seeing you all in the summer term.

Year 5 team.
