And the scariest of all…
If you would like to see what we have been doing in reading recently, then come and see our display on the top corridor. We have been introduced to four of the superhero characters;
– Crimson the Clue Hunter
– Phantom Predictor
– Word Wolf; and
– Dark Decoder
Despite nearly all of the class working it out, it has finally been revealed that our class treat was a glow-in-the-dark party! All children received a glow stick bracelet and all those who wanted to (in the time we had- more to come before the week ends!) have had their faces painted.
In Y5NH we have also had a fun and exciting day making models of mount vesuvious. First we made the structure and stuffed it with newspaper to give it a more rough and life like effect.
Then when we had created a shape we were happy with we got out the modrock and began modelling. We had to make sure our strips weren’t too wet and that we rubbed them to flatten and smooth them.
As Mrs Barton demonstrated how to apply the material (keeping it flat, not too much water, and rubbing it so it removes all the holes), the children listened attentively! We all got changed into our art shirts (from home and the cupboard) and then we were off!
We are lucky enough to have two teachers, Miss Sproson and Mr Graham, from Parkwood Academy teaching us PE again this week!
We completed some good evaluations afterwards as each half of the room performed!
We have had a small input on relative clauses today, from Miss Evans. The children had language clearly modelled and did a really fun activity that showed they understood:
– What does one do? Adds extra information about the subject noun.
– Where does it go? After the subject noun.
Here was Yaren feeling super proud after she read out her sentence with a correctly punctuated and placed relative clause!
In Y5GE, we are putting a little more detail into the guided reading we did last week as we had gotten behind. Using an extract from a mystery text, the children are finding clues that tell us about three characters that appear in our text: Harry, Billie and Arthur.
