    Year 5 had a fun and exciting Tuesday afternoon in year group cricket competition. The children had been participating in cricket training for 6 weeks before the half-term through Chance to Shine, delivered by Durham County Cricket.

    The children have loved the training and had a fantastic time at the competition. All of the children were fantastic and showed how much they had learned through the course of the PE lessons.

      Doodle Art and Discovering Crook

      Published on Tuesday 25 May 2021 by Mr Askew.

      In the last month, the children have had fun and learned about the work of Jon Burgerman and his doodle art. The children identified that this was a very modern style of art and linked it the previously learned Pop Art and how that had been influenced by current events and trends. Using his book about the recent pandemic, children skillfully drew their own doodle characters before overlapping and producing a final piece in the style of Jon Burgerman. The children were excited to see their work exhibited in our art gallery.

      In the last two weeks of half-term, the children have been conducting an enquiry in the over-arching question of 'What is Crook?' The children created their own questions to support their learning and conducted fieldwork to answer these. Once children have analysed their findings, they will be answering the question.

      The children have also participated in a debate about the proposed change of 'Should junk food be banned for children?' The children conducted independent research and decided on whether they agreed with the proposer or opposer. The children were amazing at following the correct procedures and participating with a real strength for vocabulary learned.

        Year 5 POP Art

        Published on Tuesday 27 April 2021 by Mr Askew.

        For our return to school from lockdown, Year 5, along with the rest of Crook Primary, carried out an art project based on an artistic style. Year 5 were excited when we learnt that we would be studying the Pop Art Movement.

        The children studied the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and recreated work in their style through sketching and studying colour theory.

        We created a final whole year group artwork of their favourite food in the style of Andy Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup Cans' which takes pride of place in the dinner hall for all to see. When parents are allowed back into school in the future, ask your child to show their artwork. Can you guess which one is theirs?
