Violet Class News

As Poetry Week comes just once a year,
Year 5's excitement was crystal clear!

We read, we sung, we wrote and recited,
All sorts of cool poems to get us excited!

Ancient Greek life was at the heart,
Of our learning on Monday in Topic and Art.

Tuesday's word problems were sometimes tough,
But by the end of maths no one had had enough!

In our Wednesday poems we had no fear,
In using similes, metaphors and onomatopoeia.

We worked hard on Thursday making our 'big write' plan,
On our focus poem, 'The Highwayman'.

However, some may say that Friday was best,
As we performed our song for Harvest Fest!

An extra verse must be allowed,
For our cross country runners who did Year 5 proud!

We hope you've enjoyed our quick run through,
Of our brilliant week in Violet 1 and 2!

Another fantastic week for Violet 3! Negative numbers has been one of our focuses in Maths this week, this has been particularly helpful as the temperature drops outside. Multiplying and Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 has been another focus. We have discovered how understanding this simple process can help us solve tricky SATs paper problems.

In English we started reading our class author book: The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce, and we are already gripped! We have written diary entries from the perspective of one of the main characters and we can't wait to read what happens next! Poet Idol was such a massive success, we thoroughly enjoyed watching all the acts and participating. Thank you Mrs Viana for organising such a fantastic assembly!

The Harvest Assembly gave us all a chance to reflect and we enjoyed performing our poem to the school. On Tuesday, our friend Melvyn Caplan paid us a visit, he talked to us about his job as a Councillor for Little Venice, it was interesting and informative. Miss Brooks was really impressed with the sensible questions we asked. Finally, a massive congratulations to the cross country team for coming first overall. Wow! it really has been a busy week. Next week, we are really looking forward to our trip to the V & A Museum.

Many Thanks
