In Year 5 the children have been investigating what makes Derby special. They have taken part in a city trail to explore important landmarks and have used digital cameras to record their ideas. They have been learning about Sikhism and have visited the Sikh Gudwara.
They will research the life and work of Joseph Wright and will link this learning to their art and science work to reproduce sketches and paintings inspired by Joseph Wright and conduct science experiments involving light.
Later on in the year, they will be learning how to play an instrument
The children take part in cycling with Cycle Derby and will spend an afternoon developing their cycle skills in a local park.
