Week Beginning 11th January 2021

Great French work from OH and HP! Tres bien!

Also, some great sketching in the style of Pete Mckee from HP!

Wow!  I cannot believe how magnificent that tower is! What a fantastic job OH? Did it take you all day to complete it? Perhaps, you can specialise in a career making towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows. Also, I love the Pete Mckee drawings!

Hi everybody,

Every week myself and Mr Gamage will put on 5 Creative Tasks for you to do. These will include subjects that are not Literacy or Maths based!

PE with Joe - 0900 Monday, Wednesday and Friday


It is important that you get some exercise during lockdown! We all need to look after ourselves and exercise is so important for our wellbeing. I like to go running around the woods near my house. Many of you may not be that fortunate, so I provided a link to the Joe Wickes workout. Give it a go - even if you are only able to some of the exercises, that's a start. Try to do it  a few times a week and see if you notice any improvement! The sessions start on Monday, so I will put the link in on Monday morning!

This week, we are going to focus on the Sheffield artist Pete Mckee. Before the holidays, I started the topic off, where we brainstormed ideas about his artwork. 


First,  click on the link to this website. Read the information about the different pencil grips.

Have a go at drawing lines, basic shapes( circles , ovals, rectangles) with the overhand grip. Also, practice drawing smaller shapes with the extended tripod grip. The first grip might feel a little strange, but it's how real artists hold a pencil.

Now, click on the link to Pete Mckee's cartoon workshop, where you get to practice sketching animals.


  • use the overhand grip for large shapes
  • use extended tripod grip for smaller detail and shapes
  • use a sketching pencil
  • use the side of the pencil for shading
  • draw lines faintly, so you can rub out easily
  • have fun and be resilient ( keep on going)

Design Technology

I guarantee this will be a lot of fun, although you will need to pair up with one person in your house to do this! This is an important life skill and will come in very handy for all you aspiring architects. 

You have to make a tower out of marshmallows and dried spaghetti. Please do not eat the marshmallows until you have taken a picture of you mighty skyscraper! The Rist family had a challenge over the Xmas holidays and mine won hands down. I'm not showing off! 

Steps to building  a tower


1. Before you build it, you need to sketch some designs on paper. Have a look at the Handy tips guide. This may give some useful ideas. You could even do your own research on the internet. Remember, we are looking for a structure that is stable and will not fall down. Choose what you consider to be the best design.


2. Build it! The only rule is that it has to be able to stand up by itself! 


3. Evaluate your design. Firstly, think about what worked well; then think you might make it better!



Good luck and please send in your completed towers.

Click on the video to practice your French conversation



French Conversation Year 5

Now that you have practiced the conversation, look at the list of animal names. Can you match them up with their pictures. Some of them are fairly easily, as the words are quite similar. Once you've matched them up, click on the video link to see if your answers are correct.

Also, on the video you get to practice the question :

'Qu'est ce que c'est? ( kess ker seh) - What is it?

The answer is C'est un _____! It's a ________!

Our task for today continues our 'Sheffield - It's Alreyt Tha' Knows' Creative Curriculum topic, with a look at using map grid references. This is an opportunity to locate some of our city's landmarks on a map, and see where they are in relation to one another and in relation to Walkley.
