During Spring 1 our term is Earthlings. In English we have been reading "The Man on the Moon". This inspired us to write our postcards. We packed them full of lots of SciFi vocabulary, ough words, fronted adverbials for time and relative clauses. Our postcard display in KS2 looks amazing!
To help us understand the book we had a go at a variety of different activities including freeze frames and hot seating. This helped us to get into character and really understand what a day in the life of Bob would be like!
Year 5 have really enjoyed our book this half term because it has linked so well with out History topic - The Ancient Egyptians. Our cross curricula knowledge has really helped us to create some amazing newspaper reports all about the Egyptian Cinderella marrying the Pharaoh!
We have used our ‘read all about it’ display to show off our use of parenthesis using both dashes AND brackets!
