We had fun this week in Year 5 learning new vocabulary words for our Literacy learning. We are learning all about biographies and will be writing our own on Anne Boleyn next week!
First, we spent a lesson learning the words and finding out their meanings. Then, we spent a lesson playing games and using the words in context. We played charades, pictionary, pairs and practised the spellings. The children also completed challenges involving the vocabulary, using fortune tellers!
Thank you to all those children who have been sending in their Literacy information leaflets all about a favourite musical icon! This is part of our current topic, Playlist.
Below are some pictures of your fabulous efforts.
Well done to you all!
We’ve had another week of hard work from Year 4! Well done to all of you who have shared work with us, sent in photos or are completing work at home. You are showing great resilience by persevering in these tricky times.
This week we’ve been continuing with our SOLE topic, Playlist, and lots of you have produced some brilliant pieces of work, all about how sound works, pitch, volume, soundproofing and the human ear. In Literacy, we have focused on grammar aspects in the build up to succeeded in our leaflet writing next week and Maths has been all about our times-tables.
