Welcome to 5WD's Blog
Happy half term to all of you. I hope you had a fantastic day with Mr Mole. I was at Sandringham for the day learning all about how Maths is taught in Singapore 🇸🇬. It was an inspirational day for me and I look forward to trying out some new ideas with you after the break.
Please rest all of you. Relax and enjoy some quality family time. There is NO HOMEWORK this half term.
HAPPY HALF TERM 😀
Your children have been utterly amazing during the last four weeks. We began by looking at different styles of Explanation Texts, before moving on to planning and writing our own. We then spent a long time learning about conjunctions, specifically subordinate conjunctions for complex sentences. We 'enjoyed' writing embedded relative clauses, which are always very useful, as well as how to punctuate using brackets, dashes and commas. Finally we used our new skills to edit our writing and produce a 'best' version of our explanation text. As you can see they are look fantastic - the children are very proud of them.
Mrs Withers and Mrs Dench are thrilled with how fantastic these look. The class have made sure their letter is very intricate.
