World Book Day 2020
We had a great day at school today dressed as characters of magic and mystery from our favourite books. Thank you to all those who shared breakfast with a book with us. We held a 'cat walk' assembly showing the whole school our costumes. There was a winner from each class for their costume and the prize was a book token.
Year 5 Trip to Whipsnade Zoo
Year 5 Whipsnade Zoo Trip On Thursday 13th February, Year 5 braved the weather and went to visit Whipsnade Zoo. The main reason for the trip was to visit their adopted penguins, which was definitely one of the highlights! We were incredibly lucky to be the only school there and as it was quiet we got to see a lot of animal activity, including baby sealions, giraffes and tigers. Our educational session on habitats and adaptions was very informative and we even got up close to a real python! The children and teachers had a brilliant time and the children were a massive credit to the school!
Larch Class Music
In the Autumn term, Larch class have been learning a lot in their music lessons. They have been practicing clapping and moving to the beat, talking about new songs and also learning them. In addition to this, Larch have been composing their own musical sentences using some key sounds you might find in connection with superheroes. They did an amazing job!
Space Day - Year 5
Space Day In the second half of the Autumn term, our topic was Space! As part of this topic, we held a Space day focused on astronaut training! Children came in ready to learn and be instructed as ‘Hanslope Astronaut Recruits’. The aim of the day was to pass all three training areas – fitness, food and CV application. We are happy to announce all passed the tests and are now qualified Hanslope Astronauts! NASA watch out!
Year 5 - Shakespeare Art
Shakespeare Art In the Autumn term our topic focus was on Shakespeare. We looked at his plays, his life and the Globe theatre. As part of this topic, we created some art depicting one of the famous portraits of Shakespeare. However, we gave it a little twist. Children, in groups, got part of the portrait and then brought them together at the end to create one group portrait. Year 5 are very proud of their pieces of work!
