'I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full' John 10:10
Welcome to Year 5 - Mrs Hutchinson
'Egyptian Day' was great fun and lots of the pupils and staff dressed up in Egyptian themed costumes to enjoy the activities. During the morning, the children chose from a range of art and craft projects that involved clay, bread-making, painting, making perfumed wax and carving bars of soap.
In the afternoon, the pupils were split into groups of actors and dancers. In the space of thirty-five minutes they learned and rehearsed a dance or skit to perform for the 'Pharoah and his Wife' (Ben and Victoria from Year 6). The ceremony commenced in a serious fashion and the children rose to the sense of occasion created by the Royal Visier. They enjoyed a feast of bread, cheese, 'wine' and fruit served by the slaves from Year 6. Stomachs full and thirst sated, the children danced and acted to the Pharoah's obvious pleasure. Each group left the performance area with a long, loud round of applause ringing in their ears.
It was a truly wonderful day, and I hope the children share some of their favourite moments with you.
14/9/16 How to support your child's reading development now he/she is older
I have added three PDF documents of the reading assessment the children did last week. I thought it would be helpful to illustrate the style and nature of the questions the children are expected to be able to answer in Year 5.
Please consider this style of questioning when you hear your child read. Notice how some questions are word based, some are sentence based, some are factual, some are figurative and some are interpretative. The interpretative questions are often worth more than one mark and therefore require more than one idea.
