This week year 5 were visited by ‘Mr Wolf’ from their novel – Wolves in the Walls. They posed as newspaper reporters and questioned the furry friend on why he had caused so much trouble in Lucy’s house! Turns out, it wasn’t Mr Wolf causing all the trouble after all!
During the last few Computing lessons with Mr Baddhan, Year 5 Kestrels have been using a new program called Audacity – a sound editing tool. It allows children to edit their recordings and then add sound effects.
The children recorded their suspense stories from a previous English lesson, and then added sound effects downloaded from a website called Sound Bible.
The children were also reminded about the importance of downloading copyrighted files from the internet. Always ask permission from the website or owner.
We’ve been working really hard in Year 5 on our spellings. The children have been taking part in investigations to put words into groups according to their sounds such as: tough, drought and although. They all contain the “ough” sound yet all sound different. It’s a challenge but they’re Not giving up.
