This week in year 5, we have learnt about democracy, how our country is governed and how it relates to our values. In groups, we researched the main political parties' manifestos and presented our findings to Year 3/4. Votes are currently being counted!



  Underwater Art:  

We created a textured collage by tearing and ripping paper and using glue, staples and sewing to attach it together. After careful observational drawings of fish, we transferred this to our press print. Finally, we printed our images onto our collage.

Year 5 are busy learning songs from the musicals Oliver and Mary Poppins, ready for this summer's Rutland Ring and Sing festival.
