Entering our world of art we created a topic that related to rivers.
Firstly we explored water colouring by mixing colours to make shades of that certain colour. Our educating teacher mentioned the information to the class. We all excelled in our water colouring art and designed are very own imaginative creations on to our sheets of paper.
When our imaginations were on our paper we tried to critique our work and we managed to improve each time and made all kinds of different drafts . We also added a caption to our images that was related to the picture.
“Every time we persevered it got better and we heard the motto of practise makes perfect.” -Kasey Wright
“We were inspired by the story of Austin’s Butterfly when he was determined to get his butterfly right.” – Lucy Brooks
“Our work didn’t let us down and our images was just perfect to me but maybe not to others.” – Alicia Lam
“The mind is the best weapon you could possibly own.” – Kevin Guan
“Failure is the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.” – Kansi C/Henry Ford
This has been our art this term. Thanks for reading our blog.

P.S. Feel free to comment on the blog.
Key Skills (27/09/13) were:
Write a short (couple of paragraphs) recount of something you did this weekend (or Monday/Tuesday). This could be a small scene from a TV program, it could be a trip to Tesco, or anything. It must be exciting and be your very best writing!
These were a series of 15 questions which were given out in paper copy, every child received them! If they are lost by Monday there are spare sheets to hand out.
Have a lovely weekend!
A blue scary fish swam towards me, with a clowny character with her. The random figure named me Squishy, how rude! My name is actually Colin. Terrifyingly a fin came towards me, what could she have been doing? Due to the fact that fish was rude to me, I stung her with all my mighty power! Mr Clowny Fish whacked me with his big (well small, but big compared to me) orange fin. I flew off into the distance.
This year at Simon de Senlis a large group of children and teachers in year six went to France.
The children are coming back today. They went to the capital which is PARIS! amazing right. they all come back on Thursday. Some people stayed here and did fun things like trampolining and other things.
A short blog by Ayisha, Thomas, Luke and Cynthia.
Many parents on Thursday at our meet the teacher event were asking how they could help at home. Here is an interesting article from the BBC:
Key Skills for this week, were:
Go to Countdown, and attempt to reach a target. Write down the target, the numbers provided and your workings out. The minimum is one, though hopefully you will do more! We play this often in class as it’s great for mental maths skills, we also have a leaderboard, and the person at the top of the leaderboard every half term receives some sort of prize!
Anyone at home could even race against you to solve the countdown!
Ask someone you know, have they ever been involved in a flood? Try to find someone to interview, and take notes. If you can’t find someone, research any flood worldwide and take some key notes.
As always it’s due in on Wednesday (25th Sept.)
From the start of year five, we have been experiencing wonderful new things, such as…
Interviewing different people (Miss Stutters and Miss Cookson), to gain interesting information on rivers and sports (wakeboarding). Einstein classroom was transformed miraculously into our very own BBC broadcasting room. Collaboratively we designed our own interview questions, and quizzed them until we had a jam-packed page(s) full of incredible, ingenious ideas.
Our team of reporters discovered from Miss Cookson that:
- Wakeboards cost six to eight hundred pounds!
- There’s two types of wakeboarding, one behind a boat, and one on a cable (similar to a washing line).
- To be dangerous and daring, you should go with the boat. Due to the fact the boat is a lot quicker, and riskier.
- You can do fabulous tricks, like spinning 360 or even 540 degrees.
- Wakeboarding is also performed on a river, maybe not the Nene.
- There’s also lots of competitions to compete in, but normally you would win wakeboards or kit.
- Since you can go to a speed of 22 knots, the sport is very adrenaline rushing.
Today we have named our tables; Incredible, Minions, Batman, Smiles and Bale. Five inspirational names, but each exciting and relevant to us.
We look forward to an epic year, we also look forward to any replies, feel free! 😀
From (wonderful) Class Dyson.
P.S. Mathletics is brilliant! Not only is it fun, it is also very beneficial to our numeracy skills. We all have our log-ins, if we lose these (which we won’t) we can ask for them to be re-printed.
