Y5 Writing

This half term in Year 5 we have been using the text ‘Who let the gods out’ to inspire our young writers. Children have taken on the role of reporters, writing their own articles about the escape of Thanatos – Daemon of Death.

We look forward to sharing these with you once completed.

Book Week in Year 4

This week, we enjoyed lots of reading activities to celebrate World Book Day. We read with our Year 1 buddies, heard stories from teachers, dressed as our favourite book characters and did a book swap!

Read Aloud Day

Today we shared books with our class buddies. It was lovely to hear the children reading aloud and discussing books. The Y5 children took their mentoring roles seriously and were questioning their buddies to ensure understanding. We even had some acting as a Y5 student demonstrated what it meant to stroll through the rainforest as an elephant.

Y5 Author Visit

This half term Y5 worked on completing a narrative piece of writing. They wrote an extra chapter to the book ‘Viking Boy’. The writing produced was of such a high caliber we decided to share it with the author of the book, Tony Bradman. Tony spoke to the children and answered lots of their questions, inspiring our budding writers of the future.
