Listen to our recording of Alouette during International Week. It helped us to learn parts of the body in French.
In Science Year 5 ( Oak photos) were carrying out experiments related to forces. We were also discussing scientific terms related to forces and recording our ideas.
Year 5 completed their Greek Topic in music with a short performance to parents last week. They sang and told the story of The Trojan Horse. This week to round up the topic, they composed music depicting the characteristics of Greek Gods while the rest of the class guessed who they were. They used the pentatonic scale, leitmotif (a little tune to depict a character), ostinato patterns and dynamics to represent the Gods.
Oak created this class animation of the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa. They created a storyboard of the story, made their own settings and characters, animated, summarised the story in words and narrated their animations. Here it is!
