At the beginning of the Term, Year 5 started to write an adventure story. We were exploring the features of an adventure story and some of the features are:

-speech

-short sentences

- imagery

- rhetorical questions

- cliff hangers

 

We were also looking at story mountains, opening, dilemma and resolution. We wrote our own setting descriptions on Egypt and had to think about Special Sentences to use. When writing our setting description we had to think about the vocabulary we would use such as beige, tall, pyramids, scorching, golden and sparkling. 

We also learnt how to punctuate sentences uses dashes, brackets and paired commas.

Next week we will start writing our own stories based on 'Secrets of a Sun King'.

Friday 7th December

This week Year 5 went to the Pantomime to watch Cinderella. We are writing about it next week in our Literacy lessons. When we were on the train we got to sit and talk to our partners. When we got there we were listening to Christmas music, had our picture taken outside by the Christmas tree, ate our lunch and watched the show. We sat in the upper circle which was very high. At the end it was upsetting. Poor Buttons didn't get the girl.
