On this page you will find pictures showing some of the work that we have been doing in class.
As part of our art and DT week at the end of the first autumn half term, year 5 made some felt.
First we pulled out little bits of wool and laid them down on the net to make the background;
then we added colour to make a pattern or picture;
we then put the net on top and wet it;
we had to carefully push the wool down, without rubbing;
next we added soap and rubbed in small circles;
after that we wrapped the felt around a piece of pipe lagging and squeezed out the excess water; and
finally we unrolled out felt and admired out finished work.
Our finished felting
We have been learning about Divali in RE. We had a visitor from Tullie House, who came to explain how she celebrates Divali and remind the children about the story of Rama and Sita. We also learnt some Indian dance.

On Wednesday 14th September, we had Fran from STEM in all day to learn about robots. We had a great time learning how to program our robots to move forwards, move backwards, rotate and turn. By the end of the day we were all able to program our robots to dance!
