This Term's Star Writer is Callum. He reads every day and magpies interesting words and phrases to use in his own work. This is his diary entry from Remembrance Week which will be displayed on our Star Writer's Wall.
This week we have been looking at the Ancient Greek myth 'Jason and the Golden Fleece'. We have looked at cropped pictures from this text and made literal and inferential observations. We also predicted what we thought this myth would be about supporting our ideas with the pictures.
This week, Year 5 have been using Talk for Writing to learn the story of Pandora's Box. They used Makaton and their own actions to help them remember each part of the story. They then used this structure to retell the story using varied and descriptive vocabulary.
We have been learning about World War One as part of our Remembrance Celebrations.
Here is one of our diary entries written from the point of view of a soldier.
