For the Literacy key skills this week the children have to write a poem entitled ‘Once Upon a Dream.’ The children can then enter a competition to win a prize and get their poem published.
Use the sheet supplied to plan and write the poem and if additional paper is needed, write it on an additional sheet and attach it to the printed sheet.
I’m looking forward to reading all of the poems and seeing what language features the children have applied. We have been learning: personification, metaphor, simile, alliteration, repetition and rhyme.
Remember – key skills are due in on Wednesday.
We have been learning words with the letter string ‘ough’.
The children have impressed me in their first week in year 5.
- All key skills were completed and we shared Einstein’s and Dyson’s home learning.
- Super growth mindset demonstrated by the children. One child reported,“I am finding it a bit challenging but I won’t give up.”
- Great enthusiasm for our first topic of ‘Rivers’.
- Fantastic curious learners in Science, where we are learning about the water cycle, where lots of thoughtful questions were asked.
Looking forward to the next week.
Don’t forget that reading records and key skills need to be handed in on Wednesday. At least 3 reading events need to be recorded and there is a key skills club, in the classroom, on Tuesday lunchtime for anyone who needs help.
We hope that everyone has had a wonderful, relaxing and fun filled summer holiday.
We are looking forward to teaching the new Einstein class. It’s going to be a great year.
See you all on Monday.
