For the past few weeks, we have all been working hard at a variety of PSHE and Art-based lessons. In our PSHE we have been focusing on ourselves and how we can stay happy and safe; to link to this, in Art we have created self-portraits, focusing on our use of shading to create detail and shadow.

Week Ending 2/10/20

This week we have started our new topic about Ancient Egypt! We have already learnt much about the different pharaohs and how they were buried in the necropolis called the Valley of Kings. Our art is also linked to the Egyptians; we have started by practising different mediums to draw hieroglyphs and deciding which ones were best.

Throughout this month, for Black History Month, Year 5 have been learning all about the history of black people in our country and around the world to raise their awareness of what has happened in the past. We learnt about the stories and the hardships of these individuals and we then designed posters to celebrate their achievements.
