Summer Term 2 2017

This term we are completing an Art-based topic called 'Art and Illusion' with a focus on the Op Art movement. The children began exploring this earlier in the year but we are now looking at the artists and their work in more detail.

In addition to this, Art Day will be taking place on Tuesday 20th June, where we will be investigating the artist Salvador Dali.

Sadly this is the last term of the academic year and it won't be long until they are thinking about their classes for next year. Transition Afternoon will be Wednesday 5th July, after hopefully a brilliant Sports Day on 29th June. Should be an exciting and fun term!




Summer Term 2 Homework


Y5 Homework 16/06/17 return 21/06/17

This week, the children have been given a Maths sheet to support our work on Shape. They will need to follow the instructions and explore which shapes they can make - naming them correctly. Some children have been given a second sheet, where they will need to identify 3D shapes and calculate volume by multiplying the area by the height.

All children have also received a worksheet to complete for English. In this, they will need to complete the sentences by adding a phrase to the end. We would like them all to complete the 'Now Try This' at the end of the English sheet.

As is the case every week, we expect the children to continue practising times tables and read regularly.


Y5 Homework  27/05/17 return 07/06/17
For your Half-Term Homework, we would like you to complete a mini project, in preparation for next term’s topic. Earlier in the year, part of our Art involved looking at Bridget Riley and Op Art. We are going to be focusing on ‘Art and Illusion’ next term so we would like you to complete a project on one of the main artists involved in the movement.
Please choose from:

  • Bridget Riley
  • Victor Vasarely
  • Josef Albers
  • Richard Anuskiewicz
  • Richard Allen

You may decide how you present you work but try to make it interesting and creative as we may display some of the work around the school.
