Literacy - This week we performed our poems that we have created to an audience. Mr Flanagan set us the challenge of creating our very own poem describing the Spiderwick Estate. See if you can spot the following poetic features: simile, metaphor, rhyme, onomatopoeia, alliteration and repetition.
This week has been an exciting week for class 5! We have had several visitors in school that have provided enjoyable experiences for all.
Literacy - This week we commenced our new unit of work, investigating examples of persuasive letters. We will build up our knowledge to write a response to the letter by Aunt Lucinda. We developed our understanding of formal and informal language and how these features differ and are used depending on the audience.
Mathematics - We have developed our understanding of percentages and investigated equivalences of fractions and decimals.
