Year 5 Home Learning

This term, we will be studying some famous still lives and then creating our own based on a Roman feast.
For Home Learning this week, we would like you to draw or paint your own still life of fruit and vegetables and / or objects in your home. They could be things that are important or have some meaning for you.

Remember the key elements we have been focussing on in our drawing: form (shape), texture and pattern. Look closely at areas of light and shade on the objects you’re drawing.

Below are some examples of still lives by artists to give you some ideas:

Year 5 Home Learning

For Home Learning this week, we would like you to gather as many words with endings that sound like “shun” e.g. explosion. This will be our spelling focus for next week.

Once you have gathered these words, see how many different ways the sound “shun” is spelled – do you notice anything about when one spelling (eg ‘sion‘) is used instead of another (eg. ‘tion‘)?  Can you spot any patterns to help you remember when to use a particular spelling?

Be ready to share the words and your findings on Tuesday. You can also add your ideas in the comments.

In addition, please make sure that if you have not brought in a photo of you reading in your favourite / most unusual place or a book review of your favourite book to brighten our book corner then please do so next week.

Have a lovely weekend!

Year 5 Home Learning – Roman Britain to Modern Britain

To prepare for next term’s topic learning, we would like you to produce a timeline that traces the history of Britain from the Roman invasion to the modern day. Which other civilisations invaded Britain after the Romans? What other key dates should you include? Make sure that your timeline is clear informative and visually appealing. You can use colour and should ensure that dates are labelled along the timeline.

Due: Tuesday 23rd April

Orchestra, Choir and Steel Pans perform at Deptford Green School

This evening, Orchestra, Choir and Steel Pans performed with secondary school students at Deptford Green School! After a day-long rehearsal, the children gave a fantastic, high energy performance. As well as seeing many Deptford Green soloists, the Year 4 Steel Pans performed ‘Imagine’ and ‘Three Little Birds’, the Orchestra performed ‘Jupiter’, the Choir performed ‘Moana’, and then, at the end, the Orchestra and the Choir performed together – a resounding rendition of ‘Fix You’. The children were absolutely brilliant today, giving all the energy they had to their performances. Well done Orchestra, Choir and Steel Pans!

Edmund Waller School Choir performs at Broadway Theatre

This evening, Edmund Waller School Choir performed ‘Sir Duke’ and ‘Mary Mack’ at ‘Lewisham Live’, a concert at Broadway Theatre, Catford.  The children performed with fantastic energy and they got a resounding round of applause which was very well deserved.  At the end of the concert, the children performed  ‘One Moment’ with ten other schools choirs.  Every child tried their best tonight.  Well done, Choir!
