Welcome to Year Five
Visit from Derby High School
Past and present pupil came together when Derby High School came to visit year five. They created short drama scenes
together and then performed them to each other.
Arts On The Move – William Shakespeare Workshop
In year five they have been reading William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and ‘Arts On The Move’ came into to help them dig deeper into the story.
First we discussed and recorded down what we already knew about the murder of Banquo.
Next, they were given individual roles to play. Some were characters from the story others were detectives trying to solve the crime.
As the case developed they were given evidence and were asked to write down their thoughts.
Eventually they got to interrogate some of the suspects and decide who was responsible for the murder of Banquo.
We celebrate science day each year with lots of fun experiments in class and also a wonderful science project competition.

They each designed their own party masks and listened to carnival music.
Georgia O’Keeffe – Modernism
Year five have been learning about Georgia O’Keeffe and her beautifully famous floral pieces.
To start off our project we learnt all about Georgia O’Keeffe’s artwork and what influenced her.
Next we worked on some techniques that were used to create numerous Georgia O’Keeffe pieces.
We then designed our own floral pieces influenced by Georgia O’Keeffe.
Finally we selected our favourite design and created it.
