We have had a great few weeks in P5. Last week we were lucky to have a visit from a story teller who told the tale of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. He was marvellous! This week we were visited by Lari Don, the author of ‘The Spellchasers’, which is our current class novel. She told us about the different types of books she has written, read some excerpts and we got to work as a whole group to create our own story. She explained the importance to her in creating cliff-hangers and lots of suspense and we helped create scenarios that could play out in a novel. We enjoyed her visit very much and followed it up by creating our own mythical creatures.
In maths we have been working on making ourselves expert in one times table. We also used our revision of tables to help with multiplication and division word problems. We will continue on with multiplication next week.
Next week will be our last Bikeability session. The children have really enjoyed this and we will be sad to see it end. We are also researching questions we created about the British Isles. We will work on collating this into a fact book in the coming weeks.
Next week we will be basing our assembly on Roald Dahl.
