Year 5 Update

Brookside School AdminYear 5, Class News, Kangaroos, Wallabies

Over the last two weeks, Year 5 have been exploring the Glastonbury Festival, as part of our focus on our local area and community. We are in the process of recreating our designs with acrylic paint on the recycling bins around the school and are busy rehearsing our performances ready for our own Year 5 mini-festivals: ‘Kangeroobury’ and ‘Wallabury’.

In music, we have been learning about Gustav Holst’s life and music. We have been listening to and appraising the movements of his Planet Suite; this ties in with our science, where we are studying the impact the movement of the planets has on us, in terms of seasons, night and day and time zones. We have also been learning to describe the names and positions of spherical bodies in our solar system in French.
