Celebration Assembly this term - Friday 2nd February 2018
This term in English we are looking at the Piano Man animation. We are writing a story using all of the fantastics, grammaristics and boomtastics.
We have also been focusing on including lots of Year 5 features such as relative clauses, passive voice and adverbial phrases.
This is our class story so far below.
The lustre, shimmering spotlight exceeded the dim diffused darkness of the silent room. A wise, elderly man, who loves gentle music, was playing the piano contently. Without thought, he continued to play his song in the room of peace. His fingers stroked the keys silently, as the chorus continued. A second pair of hands joined him on the piano gently. He felt blissful, elated and miraculous.
Aren't we amazing writers in Year 5?! Thank you to Hayden, Demi, Hudson, Liam, Charlotte and Georgie for the sentences so far. Keep checking back to see how the rest of our story continues.
Term 1 - Week 4
Monday: On Monday we used complex sentences in a story and in maths we were rounding number to the nearest thousand and millions.
Tuesday: In English we used dialogue in a story and we got to take our cornets home finally!
Wednesday: We did science we put salt into melted ice we used a funnel a beaker.
Thursday: We gathered lots of information about Viking longboats and how to use persuasive language to encourage someone to buy it!
Friday: We made our personal spelling lists ready for next week and in the afternoon we learnt our rap for the Harvest Festival and played some of our amazing Viking board games.
Term 1 - Week 3
Monday: Today we came to school, and when we got in we did our spellings in the morning, then we learnt about how to write relative clauses. After Breaktime we did maths, and some reading after. After lunch we did some topic about Baptism.
Tuesday: Today we continued our learning about relative clauses, repetition and complex sentences around the book Gorilla. We also compared numbers up to millions! It's very tricky. In the afternoon we got to play cornets with Mr Driscoll which was great.
Wednesday: Today we continued our adventure story about Gorilla and we really challenged ourselves in maths and reciprocal reading.
Thursday: Today was our last day of bikeability which was great fun - lots of us got our level 1 and 2 badges which we are really proud of.
Friday: Today it was bear class assembly, afterwards we did time table's it was fun next we did spellings. After we did comprehension than we had lunch and then we played boccia in PE and started to plan and design our own e-safety websites.
“We are the grammaristics!”
Hello there! And welcome to the fantastics column of this website that you are currently on! Over the past few weeks, we have been using small but extremely helpful puzzle piece shaped bits of paper. What are they called? They are called…THE GRAMMARISTICS! They help us with our writing and remind us of the different types of grammar. For example, dialogue is a conversation between two people. And past and present tense is sentences that show when something is from the past and when something is from the present. That is only two out of many more grammaristics. Here are the Grammaristics:
The boomtastics are a great way to learn and write constructive paragraphs. The teachers say if you do two great sentences they will be happy if we have really thought about the vocabulary choices, then we can add additional ideas. They help us because we write more interesting and descriptive sentences.
Here are the boomtastics:
A cornet is an instrument that is similar to a trumpet but is slightly smaller and easier to play. We’ve already had our first lesson learning about what a cornet is and how it is played! It looks tricky but we are all excited to take them home and to learn how to use our mouthpieces.
We have started using 'The Write stuff' ideas to help us with our writing, which includes learning about The Fantastics, The Boomtastics and The Grammaristics!
In English we have been writing sentences using the FANTASTICs. These are symbols which help us to decide what type sentence will be best in our writing. Here they are:
