Mystery Stories

Year 5 have been writing mystery stories in their English lesson this half-term. Below are some sample parts of their stories.

The chill shivered them as they left the arena.

“What a performance.” exclaimed Zack. He rubbed his arms and then put on his coat. Kylar, his little sister, did the same.

“We need to get home or we’ll be late for dinner.” Kylar said concerned. Kylar set of at a good pace down the aisle, Zack followed protectively behind. Suddenly, a menacing shower of hail plummeted down.The chill shivered them as they left the arena.

Stumbling forward, the arguing siblings drowned into the cold, raw pool of hail.

“I don’t like where this is leading to,” whispered Shannae catching her brother’s hoodie. With a flicker of bright coloured lights, an old rusted spinning top span around Rio and Shannae’s feet like a hypnotizing illusion. As the spinning top strolled down into the gloomy distance three ragged edged lights appeared spinning like an illuminated boomerang. Abruptly, the spinning object got greater and greater in size. Suddenly, blackness, pitch dark blackness.

24 hours later, Tiffany awoke with a start. Bella lay beside her and they were both shivering. They were still in the forest, the grass had been flattened and the trees were burning and had lost their colour. All the girls could remember was the lights flickering and they had collapsed. But who were they going to tell? No one would believe them, not even their mum would believe them.

Science - Planets

This week we have been thinking about the planets in our solar system. We found out how far each planet was from the sun and represented this on the school field. Neptune is further away than we ever thought possible! We then thought about how the planets orbit around the sun and the time it takes for each planet to do this.

More reading buddy fun

Once again, we were joined by our year 3 reading buddies. We shared books together and had lots of fun. We were very impressed with the year 3 reading ability and were really proud of the year 5 children who helped them.  

Problem Solving in maths

The children worked in groups to solve tricky maths problems. We tried to show our understanding in more than one way and prove that our answers were correct. 

Wonderful Writers

Sharing our amazing story openers with the children from Morpurgo class. We have thought very carefully about how to structure our writing and include descriptive features. We have also focused on how including dialogue can move our stories forward.
