Glitter was flying, Christmas songs were playing and festive jumpers were itching in Year 5 on Monday as ‘Decoration Day’ hit Summercroft. Organised into house groups, Year 5 & 6 travelled from class to class creating a variety of Christmas decorations. These included pop-up Christmas cards, papercraft, twig tree decorations and paper Christmas trees made from recycled wrapping paper. Thanks to their hard work the school now looks fabulous.
Year 5 have also swapped amongst themselves for the past couple of weeks for art and music. In art, the study of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous techniques continued, with the children beginning their own original paintings based on the idea of ‘Van Gogh Never’ modern artwork by Aja Kusick. In music, the children composed their own piece to match up to the themes of their art (Dawn, Daytime, Sunset & Night) doing a fabulous job of verbalising how it should sound and why. We look forward to matching the music to the paintings in the coming days!
