Year 5 have been studying Motown music this half term and have been busy evaluating various different Motown songs, as well as what each track consists of; they are able to recognise the tempo, pitch and composition of the song ‘Dancing in the Street’ by Martha and the Vandellas.
During Kestrels’ Computing lesson, they discussed the importance of not giving true information about themselves, out online. They also used their skills to create an avatar so that people would not be able to recognise them. Take a look, they were very creative!
Using drama is so important when children are discussing stories. This week, Kestrels have been acting out their ‘flashback’ stories that they have invented whilst reading October, October. They all planned and acted out their stories to each other and came up with some fascinating ideas.
This week, the children in year 5 have been testing their knowledge of the internet as well as the World Wide Web, they were asked to put their thoughts up on the flip chart to start the lesson, they then matched up lots of computer language with their meanings.
