We created our own art work based on the style of David Hockney, who created beautiful landscape art. 

Year 5 have been busy looking at structures and how triangular structures can be used to strengthen a building or construction. First, we made structures using paper. The aim was to make the tallest structure, which could also hold the weight. After that, using our knowledge of strengthening structures, we craeted dens out in the field. They had to be large enough so everyone in our group could fit in. When Mrs Khan tested them all luckily no one's den collapsed!

Year 5 have been learning about World War 2. They have been looking at the work of Henry Moore, who was a war time artist. They created their own sketches in the style of Henry Moore, aiming to create mood and emotion within their drawing.

Year 5 have had a fantastic time at Eden Camp! Scroll through the pictures to see how much we have learnt, whilst also having fun!

As part of their "Out of this World" topic, Year 5 learnt lots about space and planets in the solar system.   They made papier mache planets while learning facts about each one.

Year 5 also created space art in the style of Peter Thorpe!

Year 5 have had lots of fun learning about planets.

They have used lots of different sources, including planet songs, like the one below:
