Year 5

Shakespeare Celebration

 

We had a great day today (Friday 20th March) celebrating our work based on The Tempest by William Shakespeare. We had a lovely assembly where we showed off costumes and our newspaper reports. Even Mrs Brookes came dressed as one of the shipwrecked sailors!

In the afternoon we finished our art project about American artists and finished by singing some of our favourite songs.  See if you can see who wore an invisibility cloak and perhaps our rapping star in action...

It was the last day we will all be together for a while and also the last day we will share with Miss Lownsbrough. Thanks to her for working with us and supporting us through this unusual week.

Dancing in the Street?

Jean-Michel Basquiat 

Art inspired by him, using patterns and colours.

He used images and symbols which are based on graffiti, Hip Hop music and Punk fashion. Skulls and other parts of the human body occur frequently in his work. His fascination began while in hospital when he used an anatomy book to copy sketches from.

Safer Internet Day Presentations

Year 5 discussed, researched and then prepared PowerPoint presentations about staying safe online. We looked at using avatars to protect our identity and how to report bullying plus (importantly) how to make sure we treat other people properly online so that we do not become the bully!

Art

 

We have created fantasy landscapes inspired by the artist Ansel Adams.

 

He used monochrome photography to create art. 

 

By not using colours he avoided distraction and focused on the shapes and moods.

Music

 

We performed The three note Bossa by Ian Gray. 

 

We improvised Jazz melodies using the same notes and instruments.

Candles by Candlelight

 

Well done Year 5 (and everyone else!) for singing so well at our Advent service.

 

A week of culture!

Year 5 have been able to enjoy music and drama performances this week.

 

A brilliant musical performance of Sleeping Beauty amazed us all.

 

 

 

Later, we had a superb Christmas themed musical extravaganza performed by

St Helens Council Music Service

Christmas at the Cathedral

and

Museum of Liverpool visit

 

Year 5 had a wonderful day exploring the history of Liverpool. 

We then spent the afternoon at the cathedral celebrating at the

nativity service.

 

The weather was terrible but we managed the walk between with a smile!

Canary Sings

Some of our class have visited Holy Spirit School to take part in a local history project all about coal and glass industries in St Helens. We worked with many other schools alongside an author who is going to create and publish a new book with our help. It will feature two characters inspired by our town, Coaly and Paney. 

The pictures below show some of the work we did.
