Twas the Night Before Christmas
performed by Year 5
Year 5 have been learning the popular poem A visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke-Moore. They have added their own actions and intonation ready for performance.
The Firework Makers Daughter
This term Year 5 have been reading the Story 'The Firework Makers Daughter' by Philip Pullman. A story about the adventures of a young girl, who grew up wanting to become a firework maker like her father. They have been busy learning how to structure a range of different texts and how to develop their sentence structures in order to entertain the reader. Their writing has included: character descriptions of Lila, the main character; restaurant reviews (Rambashi's Jungle Grill); poetry about a fire-fiend, Razvani; a newspaper report about an extravagant firework display and finally they designed and wrote instructions for their own fictitious fireworks and made their own for display as shown below.
As Year 5 learnt about the features of play scripts, they began understanding these through using them. Here are some photos of the children's performances.
In PE Year 5 have been working on their athletic skills and developing their stamina in order to run longer distances, throw further and jump longer distances. Below are pictures of year 5 working hard at many different activities. I was very proud of how they persevered with each activity.
