You should read for at least 15 minutes every day and record your activity in your Reading Journals.
To practise for your next Maths Challenge on 8th October you should spend at least 30 minutes on TTRock Stars. A new tournament has been set up between both Year 5 classes. It commences at 4pm on Friday 1st October and ends at 8.30am on Friday 15th October. Who will be the winners?
Next week our writing focus will be on story writing. To practise your skills, you should describe the scene in the picture. What is happening? What can you see? Remember to use similes, metaphors, alliteration and personification.
A is an expression which describes a person or thing as being similar to someone or something else. For example, the sentences 'She runs like a deer' and 'He's as white as a sheet' are examples of similes.
A is an imaginative way of describing something by referring to something else which is the same in a particular way. For example, if you want to say that someone is very shy and frightened of things, you might say that they are a mouse.
A something abstract is its representation in the form of a person. These are examples of personification. Lightning danced across the sky. The stars in the clear night sky winked at me.
We will share your descriptions in class on Friday 8th October. Homework is due in on Wednesday 6th October.
