Homophone Investigation.

This week, we carried out a homophone investigation.  Which homophones do you get mixed up when you are writing?

Have another go at playing the Homophone Pair Game.  Which level can you play confidently?  Do you understand what the different words mean?  Can you use them in your own narrative sentences?

Create your own homophone posters like the ones above to display on the learning wall.

Homework 18/11/16

5F have been reading non chronological reports in Guided Reading.  This week children are to create a page for our class book about a fictional or real animal that lives in a river based habitat.  This could be an animal that lives either entirely or partially in the water.

Think carefully about how the non-chronological reports are structured and the different sections of information you believe the reader will need to understand all about your animal.

If you need any tips try visting National Geographic on http://www.ngkids.co.uk/

Homework is due in on Friday, 25th November

Year 5 Class Read

In English we are currently studying Micheal Morpurgo’s ‘Why The Whale Came’, as part of our topic ‘Water, Water, Everywhere’.  Over this term, we will be reading this book as our class read and using it to inspire our own narrative texts.

Gracie and Daniel have been warned to stay away from the mad Birdman – but the message in the sand tells them that the Birdman isn’€™t what he seems.
