5CS Term 1 Timetable - Have a look at what each week looks like this term...

An exciting start!

What a great start to a new school year we have had! Thank you to BBC Radio Lincolnshire for popping to visit our school as we reopened the gates after the Summer holidays. They even visited our classroom to interview some of the children to see what they had been up to over the Summer. It was fantastic that members of the Lincoln City Football team were able to come along and meet us too!

Vicious Victorians!

We worked together to make our own class 'WORLD HISTORY' timeline so that we could learn about when the Victorian Era started and ended. Take a look at the timeline on display!

Retrieval Practice

This year, we are going to be focusing on trying to get more of our learning to STICK! We discussed our answers to two questions: What is learning? What is memory? We talked about short-term memory and long-term memory. We had a go at a few retrieval based activities and enjoyed finding out how much we had remembered after two days back at school! We will be completing more retrieval based activities during the year in order for our learning to STICK! 


 Picture This

We have worked incredibly hard this week learning all about perspective drawing. We practised the skills we needed and completed a whole class draw of a cityscape. 

To showcase our skills we recreated our own version of our Picture This image which was by painter John Atkinson-Grimshaw. He was a popular, self-taught painter who lived during the Victorian era. 

Take a look at our perspective drawing, our Picture This image and our own versions of this fantastic painting (Glasgow - Saturday Night) below.
