Thursday 7th October was National Poetry Day so Year 5 read The Kraken by Alfred Lord Tennyson as they have been writing about kelpies and other mythical creatures this half term.
The buzz around reading is incredible in year 5. We are having a year group competition to see which class reads most at home. Look at these fantastic reading diaries by Shelby, Edward and Beth.
Our guided reading books are also causing quite a lot of excitement!
5BY are reading River Boy and Emilia’s vocabulary work has been excellent.
5EM are continuing the mythical creatures theme with ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ and Iris has summarised chapter 3 really succinctly.
5ST have been enjoying Kensuke’s Kingdom and Edward has done some super work about the effect of the author’s choice of language on the reader.
5JB are laughing out loud at the BFG and his funny way of speaking. Look at this super inference work from Riley!
