Since arriving back at school in March, we have been working incredibly hard in 5th class. Here are just some of the activities we have been doing.
Our next art project was about celebrating the work of established artists. Our task was to take one aspect of the artist’s work that inspired us. We then created our own completely different interpretation of the painting based on that one aspect. The boys all worked tremendously throughout this project.
All of our artwork is proudly displayed in our classroom at the moment.
We have also been working on science a lot, as part of the STEAM project. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics). Lately, we have been learning about the human body and in particular, Respiration.
Our experiment was an investigation of inhalation (breathing in) and exhalation (breathing out). The boys learned many new terms (trachea, nasal passage, bronchi, bronchioli, alveoli, diaphragm).
