6th October 2016
The Roald Dahl excitement continued today as pupils analysed some of his famous 'Revolting Rhymes'. With clips to watch and rhymes to study pupils then went on to create their own freeze frames for different parts of the rhyme. Pupils then used their ICT skills to present their work to their peers to assess. They had to decide which of the famous rhyming couplets were being acted out! Great fun, fantastic freezes!
Well excitement was high in the year 5 classes today as a special delivery arrived for the year 5 pupils. What was it...?
Willy Wonkas very own scrumdidliumptious chocolate bars...and yes believe it or not inside each of the carefully wrapped bars were crisp, shiny golden tickets! As the pupils carefully peeled back the shiny wrappers and the goldren tickets were revealed curiosity was lurking. Was it a trip to Wonk's very own factory? No, but a message from Willy Wonka clearly describing the children's literacy task. All pupils were fully engaged and were keen to get started. Furthermore the fun continued as the chocolate was enjoyed after the task. Delicious!!
4th October 2016
This month literacy has got off to an exciting start as pupils begin an author study about Roald Dahl. Pupils have enjoyed using hwb, book creator and powerpoint to showcase the research that they have gathered to formulate their own quiz based on Roald Dahl. What better way to show off their work other than their own peers attempting to answer their quizzes! Suspense will soon follow when pupils arrive to in their literacy groups tomorrow!
Keep a look out, I wonder what they will find?
Ride of Passage
In Literacy year 5 have started the term by studying a video clip of 'Ride A Passge'. They have used their inference skills to infer what is happening in the South American themed clip. They have created their own success criteria to identify the key features of a mini saga and after editing Wabolls and looking at Wagolls the children have had a go themselves at writing their own min sagas based on a 'Ride of Passage'. They have used their annotating skills to identify key features of a leaflet, clearly planned their own leaflet and worked on exciting sentences to engage the reader. They have then finally applied all that they have learnt from their learning journey into their very own leaflets on the South American tribe! What a great job they have done too! Many of the leaflets are fantastic! Take a look below at just some of the fantastic pieces of work that have been completed over the last week weeks based on the topic of South America.
