Take a look at some of what we've been doing so far this term in Year 5


Firefly Pottery

Year 5 had an amazing time creating their own Greek pottery when we visited Firefly Pottery. Here are a selection of photos from our day. The finished products will be fired in the kiln and glazed before being returned to the children. Look out for more pictures of the finished items when we receive them!

Our pots are finished! Here are a selection of photos of the amazing art and DT work we have done.

Ancient Greek Day

Year 5 came to school in their grooviest Greek attire to experience a fantastic day of Greek activities led by John Conyard. We all learned lots and had a truly enjoyable day. Here are some of the images from our day.
