Junk Percussion

Tomorrow, year 5 & 6 will be taking part in a junk percussion workshop.

In these sessions the children will learn to question whether an item is ‘rubbish’ or ‘reusable’ whilst pushing the limits of music and rhythm to another level.

We will have fantastic fun playing them whilst gaining valuable experience of working as a team and old pots, pans, brushes and boxes can all be recycled to form a “Junk” orchestra.

Their own compositions will emerge into their final performance at the end of the day.

If you have any items at home that you could create into a musical item to bring in, such as cardboard tubes as shakers, wooden spoons, plastic bags, small tuber ware containers (drums), please bring them in with you.

Thank you,

The year 5 team

We have been finishing our Christmas crafts lately and we will be selling them for £2 at the Christmas fair tomorrow.





Last Friday we had our open afternoon. The children were amazing at showing their work to the parents and the parents were very intrigued to know more.  We are very proud with all the children and we hope that they have enjoyed the open afternoon.

We’ve appointed 2 class bloggers: Max and George! They will be adding some posts very soon to make sure we are sharing our learning.

Be sure to comment on it!

Today in maths the class were amazing at adding and subtracting decimals and BEGGED for a few more to try at home:

7.42 + 0.04

3.23 – 0.13

5.6 + 6.78

2.34 – 1.27

Challenge: Can you create a word problem involving decimals? It can be to do with how much change you get when Christmas shopping,  how much ribbon you will need for a present (in cm) or even how much hot chocolate gets drunk at a Christmas party (ml).

This week, we have been adding different effects. We have learnt how to add commentary, sounds, animate a character and consequences. The different effects have been added to our Maze games to enhance them.

What new skills have you learnt?

Can you explain the steps to someone who hasn’t used these before?
