Hello and welcome to 5EW!
Our teacher is Miss Wray and our teaching assistant is Miss Mase.
We are currently reading the non-fiction text 'Everest' by Sangma Francis and Lisk Feng. We have enjoyed learning all about the animals of the Himalayas, the history of Mount Everest and exactly how the mountain was formed.
In class, we are also reading the book 'Wonder' by R.J Palacio. This is a heart warming story of a young boy with a facial deformity, and how he navigates life.
We have just finished reading our book 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' which is all about a refugee boy from Syria. We used this as inspiration for our own stories about refugees. Here is an example.
During art, we have been creating observational drawings. We drew a picture of a house and then chose a particular part of our drawing that we really liked (because of the patterns used). We then used a view finder to isolate this section, before pressing this design carefully into some polystyrene tiles. We used black ink to print our design into our books, creating a monochrome effect.
