Art in Buzzard

Today in Art we have been experimenting with print making techniques. In previous Art lessons we have been looking at Anglo-Saxon brooch designs and designing our own. We then put our designs onto polystyrene tiles to use for our block printing. We were all very pleased with how they turned out. 


Coram Life Education Visit

Today we had a visit from the Coram Life Education team. They came into talk to us about being a good friend, how to be assertive and resist peer pressure. We discussed how we keep our bodies healthy. What we do that might harm our bodies leading to discuss legal and illegal drugs. The children really enjoyed the workshop, they listened attentively, answered questions sensibly and made lots of very valid discussion points. 


DT Sewing Project

As part of our Design and Technology for this term we have been designing and making a tote bag from recycled t-shirts. We would like to thank the amazing adult volunteers that came into help. We are all very proud of our end products.

Today Buzzard class had their class party which was their reward for working so hard during the Autumn Term. We had great fun! They are now working towards their next class reward and earning marbles. Keep up the hard work Buzzards - you are brilliant!!









Road Safety (16.1.23)

Today we had a visit from the Dorset Police Road Safety team. Emma Norton talked to us about road safety and reminded us about staying safe on and near the roads. We discussed how to use the roads and pavements safely when we are walking, riding our bikes or scootering. We look at the different types of crossings and remembered the 'Green Cross Code' when crossing the road. Emma also tested us on the different types of road signs we might see and what they mean. Emma reminded us that as we are the older children of the school we must set a good example and be positive role models to the younger children and show them how to be stay safe. 


Numberfit World Cup Mathematics Competition

Today we had fun celebrating the start of the football World Cup as well as practising our maths skills.  








October is Black History Month and in Year 5 we have been looking at the life of Martin Luther King. We have learnt about how he wanted to end segregation and fought for equal rights for black Americans. We watched his famous speech 'I have a dream..'. We then discussed what we would like in an ideal world and wrote our own speeches. 

Here are some examples of our great work. 

I have a dream…


I have a dream where I can step outside and see world peace. I am looking forward to a world with no violence in the globe. There will be no more wars, everyone will have to compromise.

I have a dream! A dream of no deforestation and animals homes to be saved. When the animals are saved we will be happy.

I have a dream of when I have children everyone will have food, water and shelter. I am looking forward to the homeless people having a place they can call home.

I have a dream! When people will not litter. I feel a smile will appear on my face.  When I am walking down the road and see a piece of litter I always pick it up . I have a dream of a world of people recycling every bit of litter in the world.

I have a dream! I know there will be no more global warming.

I have a dream! That the world will be a better place.

I have a dream!

Year 5 have had a great Ancient Greek inspired day. Everyone came in dressed up as Ancient Greeks - we all looked fantastic!

We studied the Greek alphabet and the myth 'Theseus and the Minotaur'- creating our own story boards to retell the story. We designed our own Greek pottery and tried some traditional Greek food. 

We all had a great day, having fun and learning!
