Autumn 2

Persuasive writing

After visiting Formby on our geography field trip, we had to tell everyone why it was the best beach around. We watched adverts and read persuasive texts to see what techniques we could use. Finally, we wrote our own advert.

Science fiction

We investigated different items associated with science fiction, discussing what they are called and how they are used. We thought about different films, books and stories we have seen them in before. 

An Interview with an alien

After thunking of some questions we would like to ask an alien on Earth, we then used the hot seating technique to question each other. We wrote up our answers and created a report for the world to read.  

A scene from a Christmas Carol

Working in groups, year 5 read over the scene from a Christmas Carol and ensured they understood the vocabulary. Then they rehearsed the scene and finally performed them back to each other. We all felt very Christmassy after this!
