This morning, year 5 started mind mapping reasons for not doing their home work, these reasons are going to be written in an email form to Mrs Butterworth!
Kestrels had some brilliantly creative ideas; the homework was completed in secret agent pen and is therefore invisible, the home work was accidentally folded into a paper plane and flew away on a gentle breeze, somehow the pet fish escaped from its bowl landed on the home work and made it wet!
Under our reasons, we made a list of opposing conjunctions we could use when writing the email.
Today half of year 2 came into year 5 today to have a shared ERIC (Enjoyed Reading In Class). Kestrels had chosen their favourite book in preparation to share with children from year 2. It was a great success, everyone enjoyed themselves.
We have been writing poems about different feelings in Year 5 Kestrels. We typed up our poems and changed the fonts, colour and size of the text to add interest. Today we started an illustration that compliments the emotion of our poem. Then we will cut up the words and lines from our poem and stick them in and around our illustration.
Last week Year 5 started reading and annotating different poems.
Today we read rhyming and non rhyming poems about different feelings and emotions. We chose an emotion and started to mind map ideas for our own poem.
Niah described anger like a volcano erupting. Elliott described happiness like bright sunshine. Sophia describes sadness as being apprehensive. Kenny described pride as wearing it for everyone to see. We all had brilliant ideas and contributions.
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!
