Year 5 have been learning about portraits. We looked at different types of portraits, including police sketch artists' work and portraits by a person who has face blindness (she cannot recognise faces). We then tried some of our own. We found it really tricky to draw accurately and in detail but we are all making lots of progress!
Year 5 enjoyed a practical Science lesson as they explored how gears work. They used toys and models to investigate how the gears fit together and how clockwise and anti-clockwise movements fit together. The children also reflected on what happened when large and small cogs are fitted together and they looked at the gear mechanism on a bicycle.
