Black History Month 


Year 5 studied Nelson Mandela for Black History Month. The pupils were surprised by the major events in his life and were appalled by the way people were treated. They have truly been inspired by the actions and strength of Nelson Mandela. We also learnt about the internationally known sculptor Magdalene Odundo. The pupils were inspired by her methods of working and so we decided to work like her and sketch outside. 

South America 


Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed learning about South America. We recently carried out a research project about one of the countries. This helped us combine our new knowledge and link it to other subjects link English, Maths and Computing.
