For the next few weeks we will be learning about Living Things and their Habitats.

For those of you who are interested in nature and animals, this will be a fab topic to cover at home and there are lots of natural history programs on the television you can watch. 

Our first lesson is all about life cycles of different groups of animals.


1.Have a look at the powerpoint if you can access it but if not don't worry.

2.Read the life cycle cards and try to put them in the correct order.

3.Then choose one to draw or print out and stick on paper.

4.Answer the questions from the focused question sheet.


We are going to be doing a short art topic about observational drawing and still life.

Today we will be looking at how we create tone and texture when we are drawing objects. 

Have a look at the powerpoint and have a go at drawing your own object. 

If you can't view the powerpoint I have put a link on to a youtube clip which explains how you create tone. It's quite a useful clip so everyone may want to watch it too.

It would be great if you could send some of your drawings into school so we can upload them to the Y5 gallery. GET CREATIVE, HAPPY DRAWING!
