This morning, Year 5 read, analysed and performed poems with superb intonation, expression and volume. They are such confident, articulate children ... not to mention, poetic! We also ventured outside, armed with balls, clapping rhymes and skipping ropes, to explore rhythm and tomorrow it's over to our budding poets to write their own compositions! I can't wait to hear them performed as well!
We've been exploring characters from The Railway Children in English and, having written character profiles, the children scripted interviews with their character this morning, focussing on how standard and non-standard spoken English bring a character to life. As you can see, the class then dressed up in character and filmed their interviews in role!
I spotted this!
A chance to design a national book token and win prizes!
Wow! Class R had some very special visitors today! We found 2 smooth newts in our outdoor area. How fantastic that we have amazing wildlife visiting us- we are very lucky! We are now going to use these visitors to inspire learning.
See if you can find out some facts about smooth newts and comment below.
