One more week until our first term in Year 5 is complete! It seems to have whizzed by!
 
 We have enjoyed some activities linked to Christmas; in R.E. we are finding out about preparations during Advent, for Christmas Day and the birth of Jesus,  We made symbols for our Jesse tree, representing stories from the Old Testament, before Jesus was born.  We remembered some of Jesus' ancestors including King David. We enjoyed learning the traditional Carol 'The Angel Gabriel to Mary came'.
 
We had a creative time experimenting with water colour paints - we mixed colours to create shades of green.  We discovered techniques of representing winter foliage and tried them out in our art books. 
Finally, we chose the styles we preferred and created beautiful images of Christmas wreaths.  We are very proud of our results and each painting is unique!
