Y5 Learning Blog

This half term, our topic is Brazil!
Our topic started with a Wow! day, which entailed the children completing activities based around their future learning of Brazil as a country, its culture and its place in the World. We will be looking at its environmental significance, in particular the modern view of the Amazon as portrayed by the media and the vast tourist industry.
Children enjoyed learning about different foods coming from the rainforest. We also sketched and painted animals that can be found in the Amazon Rainforest.
The Tudors!
This half term we have been looking at 'The Tudors'. We began with a WOW day where we created some art work using watercolours. We looked carefully at tones, palettes and composition whilst creating some fantastic pieces of art. 
We re-created scenes from 'The Battle of Bosworth' and created a display using pictures and artwork related to the battle. We also wrote some diary entries from the perspective of a soldier during the Battle of Bosworth.
