Past/Present poetry

In Year 5, we have been writing past/present comparison poetry.

 

We first learnt how to use semi-colons to separate independent clauses and used this skill to construct poems based on either an elderly family member, the main character from ‘The Piano’ ( a short animation, which you can view below) or Carl from ‘Up’.

 

We hope that you enjoy reading our poems – we are all very proud of them in school!

 

5K – What am I?

Year 5 have been working hard to write their own riddles about something space-related. We focused on using different sentence openers and saving our more obvious clues for the end. The riddles should be difficult to guess but not impossible!

Please feel free to read a few, and comment in the reply section with your guess. We will approve all the reply comments on the first day back in January so that children can see how successful their riddles were! We hope you enjoy solving them and we wish you a wonderful Christmas break!

5D – Allotment Presentations

This week, we have enjoyed creating presentations to share our understanding of an aspect of allotment life. We wanted to make our presentations as creative as possible and even included hyperlinks to link words to the glossary and back. We hope you enjoy looking at our work – we certainly enjoyed creating it and we can’t wait to see what 5K produce when it’s their turn!

October Half Term Homework – 8 sentence challenge

Hi Year 5,

We hope you are having a fabulous holiday so far! For homework over the half term, we have set you a descriptive writing challenge, like the ones we do in class.

Look closely at the image below.

Your challenge is to write the most amazing descriptive paragraph, but here’s the catch: You can only write 8 sentences! Think about your sentence types, sentence starters, adjectives, punctuation and conjunctions.

Make sure you edit and improve your writing before submitting your final version on to the blog!

(If access to the internet is limited – you can complete this on the sheet provided before we broke up.)

If you look back on the blog, you will see the descriptive writing that last year’s Year 5 children wrote. Feel free to magpie ideas!

Enjoy!

How has Woodley changed since 1841?

In Year 5, we have been learning all about our local area and how the land use has changed over time since 1841. Who can remember what the biggest changes to our local area over the past 175 years have been and why did we think these changes occurred?

See if you can find your house on the Cheshire Archives Website and look at how your immediate area has changed.

Take a look at the maps we used in class to see the changes for yourself!

8 sentence challenges

Year 5 have been working hard learning and practising lots of different sentence types to use in our writing. As a challenge, we were set the task of writing the most amazing descriptive paragraph using the image below. We were only allowed to write 8 sentences so we had to make sure that each one was powerful. We hope you enjoy reading some of our work!
