Year 5 have been continuing to read Raven Boy and have been writing our own version of events following a different character. The children have been working really hard to choose interesting vocabulary in their writing, use similes and metaphors as well as parenthesis and speech.
It was year 5’s turn to go in the computer room this month which the children loved! We focused on coding skills in our robotics unit. The children de-bugged some coding, learnt about the theory behind automated systems and then made their own coding game using a micro: bit.
Year 5 have also started our new DT topic: Chinese Inventions. The children learnt about important inventions from China and made and tested prototypes of kites. The children are going to be making their own kites in the last week of the Autumn Term too!
