5EV

Everyone had a lovely afternoon making some Christmas crafts. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to the parents to lunch and craft afternoon.
  
   
   
  
  
5EV have had a great time participating in ‘I’m a Scientist get me out of here!’. They were able to find out about the lives of 5 scientists and then to take part in a live online chat with some of these scientists. Children were then able to vote for the scientist’s work which they felt would be the most beneficial to our lives. It was a tough decision but Senga won (she takes DNA out of bacteria and uses it to help plants grow well!). She has even got people at the White House to make fake poo and is sending us the recipe.
  
  
FOSLS very kindly awarded £100 towards new books in our classroom. 5EV have really enjoyed reading their new books which include: Alex Rider books, Harry Potter, Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Faraway Tree collection, A Michael Morpurgo collection and Roald Dahl selection- something for everyone to enjoy! Thank you FOSLS!
  
   
5EV have been looking at instruction texts. They followed the instructions of different Halloween crafts and evaluated how good the instructions were.
   
  
   
  
   
5EV had a visit from author Gemma Brown today. She shared The Marvellous Marathon Dragon with the class and they then created a persuasive poster for Drago Puffer’s next marathon.

5EV enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters for Roald Dahl day. They also enjoyed watching a live webcast about Roald Dahl in which Quentin Blake, the illustrator of Roald Dahl’s books showed them how to draw a character. Please see below photos from the day.
