Autumn 1 – Week 6

Stars of the week: Aden & Vivienne

Congratulations to Canaan and Sebi for becoming our Handwriting Champions from Handwriting Week. All of Class  5 put in so much effort – well done.

We have published our exciting Curse of the Maya chapters this week. Class 5 worked really hard on making their figurative language impactful and they managed to build up the suspense effectively. There are some extracts below. Next week, we will be writing Maya non-chronological reports filled with all our new Maya knowledge.

In art, we have been exploring the work of Georgia O’Keefe. Class 5 have been using their scrap books like true artists; experimenting, annotating and discovering different mediums. We started practising with wire to make our sculptures inspired by Georgia O’Keefe, next week.

    I’m really excited to read these stories. Andy and myself loved writing the book and we are so inspired by the great work that is coming out of it at various different schools, and particularly yours!

    Well done, children!

    Class 5 OBVIOUSLY rock.

    “It was a dark night. A cold night. The perfect night for an escape plan.”

    Lovely use of repetition and short sentences for effect.

    Some wonderful, adventurous vocabulary being used in all of these pieces.
