Welcome to Year 5
Year 5’s visit from the Riot Act Theatre Company
On Wednesday, 15th March The Riot Act Theatre Company presented a fantastic workshop to Year 5. Pupils took part in an interactive, theatrical workshop where they investigated a crime scene involving a cyclist and a pedestrian. Children learned aspects of how to be safe when cycling and scooting and explored attitudes towards what safety means and false perceptions of safety when cycling or scooting. They also developed an understanding of the consequences of being involved in a collision between a bike/scooter and a pedestrian. It was a great opportunity for children to learn practical ways of how to stay safe when cycling and scooting.
Year 5 Art Day
In our Art Day we looked at pointillism. Pointillism is the artistic technique of using dots to paint a picture. First we sketched out our picture in light pencil, we then used cotton buds, dipping them into the paint and dotting them on the page. Then we built the colours up by dotting other colours on top. I really enjoyed it. My favourite part was doing the sea, I used a mixture of blue, purple and green.

Year 5 trip to The Oval
Children from Year 5 and 6 were invited to participate in the Maurice Fulcher Cricket Tournament at The Kia Oval, home of Surrey Cricket Club, on Monday, 28th November. Despite little cricket experience the children gave a really good account of themselves and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Impressive performances came from Waleed (6T Pullman) with some great bowling and Sameed (5B Wilson) with some great batting including a 6!
