IMMERSING OURSELVES IN ENGLISH

 

Since the beginning of term we have been immersing ourselves in some fantastic novels.

 

In each key stage 2 classroom there is an amazing inspirational display that has been taken from each of the texts.

 

Here are the year 5 and 6 classrooms.

Year 5/6 - Flour Babies by Anne Fine

Years 5 and 6 PE - Disco Dancing

This term we are studying a new topic called I.D.

 

In this topic we will be asking ourselves questions like:

What is DNA?

What characteristics have I inherited?

What makes us different?

Who are the scientists who discovered DNA?

What does my fingerprint look like?

 

 

 

 

In English we are reading:

Tick, tock, tick, tock!

Some stories are like that. Once you've wound them up, nothing will stop them ...

A tormented apprentice clock-maker, a deadly mechanical knight in armour - and the sinister Dr Kalmenius, who some say is the devil ...

Wind up these characters, fit them into a story on a cold winter's evening, with the snow swirling down, and suddenly life and the story begin to merge in a peculiarly macabre - and unstoppable - way.

Almost like clockwork ...
