Self Portraits

This week we have taken inspiration from the artist Kehinde Wiley who is best known for his distinctive portraits. 

Kehinde Wiley: 'I took the DNA of William Morris and created hybrids' | Art  and design | The Guardian

As part of our topic this term is It’s good to be me! We looked in mirrors and drew all the different features we could see. We created our own portraits against patterned backgrounds just like Kehinde Wiley:


Deptford Creekside 12.10.21

On Monday, 5W visited the Creekside Discovery Centre as part of our topic: Water, Water Everywhere. We waded through the river at low tide and discussed how the moon affects the tidal flow in this section of the Ravensbourne River. We also learned about the different fish, insects and birds living in and around the Creekside! In the afternoon, we looked at different objects retrieved from the river, which give an indication of the historical uses of the area.

4S Homework 7.10.21

This week we have been learning a story which features the sinking of the Mary Rose. However, the story doesn’t have a lot of information about the ship. Can you do some research at home to find out more? What did the ship look like? What was it used for? There are many theories around how the ship sunk. What do you think happened to it? Have a look at the website to find out more. Mary Rose

You can present your work in a number of ways. For example: Create a fact file; make a poster; build a model of the ship; draw a diagram or put together a PowerPoint.

Also, continue practising your times tables. Try and beat my score on Hit the Button (38). You could also create a mini test in your homework books and see how quickly you can answer 10 times table questions. Set yourself a goal each time. How many can you answer in 1 minute?

Home Learning 7.10.21

Last week and this week in Science we have been thinking about what it means to be healthy. We have talked about what a healthy diet consists of and how we can keep our bodies healthy by taking part in regular exercise.

Me and Mister P

We have finished our ‘class read’. We are very sad to say goodbye to Mister P. If you would like to read more in this series, you are in luck. There are more to buy or borrow from the library!

If you would like to find out what happens to Mr P, there are more adventures to enjoy!

Don’t Put Your Finger in the Jelly Nelly!

This weeks book has been so fun! The children have been enjoying putting their hands into different textures and used language to describe how it feels.

on Monday we played with spaghetti and practiced our scissor skills.

We made our own ‘Spag-yetti’s!’

On Tuesday we played with cornflour and observed how it changes. We discussed how it looked and how it felt.

On Wednesday we made jam sandwiches. We used a knife to carefully spread butter and jam.

On Thursday we prepared jelly to taste. We used our hands to break up the pieces then dissolved it in hot water.

We are learning to love books!

Here is the story we have been reading. Share it at home!

We have also been learning important hygiene skills. Please encourage your children to wash their hands after using the toilet, blow their own noses and catch coughs and sneezes in their elbow.
