Is there anybody out there? There certainly is!

5NG have been having a cosmic time learning about space!

5LR had great fun ordering the planets according to size... we used fruit to help us!

We have been working on our reading strategies together. It is important that we get started straight away, stay in one spot and read the whole time. It is really helping us develop our comprehension, accuracy, fluency and vocabulary.

5LR Christmas Decoration Day

As one of their last lessons of the calendar year, 5LR chose to look at one of their favourite poems, Snow by Walter de la Mare.  Rather than learn it and then innovate it (make it their own), the children chose to learn it and perform it instead.  They were amazing, especially because Poetry was their least liked genre at the beginning of Year 5!!!
