Hi Year 5,
If any of you would like to continue with your fantastic efforts during Thursday’s Computing lesson, you can download Inkscape for free at home and start working on some logos, creating patterns and becoming vector designers.
Here is the link to download Inkscape for Windows: http://tinyurl.com/pulk7zt
Year 5 have put together some arguments to try and persuade you that littering is bad.
Sarah worked really hard in English to write a poem about our classroom at night. She wrote
with such enthusiasm she didn’t want to stop writing the poem. Great work Sarah, you are our Superstar Writer of the week, keep it up!
The Classroom At Night
Swaying blinds dancing
to the rhythm of the flaps
displays running across walls
unstacked chairs expecting
to squash them
the light blue door
waiting to be opened
unmarked books waiting
impatiently to be marked
dark blue trays
waiting to be stuffed with paper
security alarms blinking
like the broken headlight of a car
Psst! Have you heard? There are some amazing things going on in Y5 at the moment!
Some children are really aspiring to be successful, and in order to do so, they have been doing lots of extra pieces of homework. Prithi and Younes have been working on their Poetry at home. Their work reflects what we have done in class, and really shows that they are trying to understand all the skills and techniques we are studying.
What could YOU do to push yourself?
Identifying poetic techniques
In Meerkats class this week, Faisal and Anisa produced some extra work during an English lesson, creating their very own poem.
Well done to you both. You really deserve to be Superstar Writers of the week!
Year 5 have been using Hopscotch to create some wonderful artwork this week, proving that computer programming is a brilliant way to be creative and imaginative – as well as being enormously fun!
Our artistic programmers used their logical skills and their perseverance to give commands so the sprite would draw what they instructed. They programmed the sprite to draw a background…
…and to then repeatedly draw shapes to create some mesmerising patterns.
This shows that while the iPads are fun to play with, it’s much more fun if you use them to be creative! Year 5 have seen for themselves that making their own games and art is the best way to use Hopscotch.
Great work everyone!
