Today we were invited to the local secondary school Lakelands, to complete a Maths workshop aimed at year 5 children.
The children were involved in problem solving activities and they had the opportunity to explore different sized cubes. It was lovely for them to discuss their ideas with other year 5 children from different schools.
This week in English, we have produced some writing based on our class book, Street Child by Berlie Doherty. We have written character descriptions of two of the main characters and this has allowed us to use the ‘show not tell’ technique. ‘Show not tell’ focuses on developing the characters feelings through the movements and expressions of the character. We have also written a descriptive setting description of the workhouse and a diary entry from the main characters perspective. The children are really enjoying reading Street Child and we are impressed by their enthusiasm to carry on reading.
