Poetry in motion

In gymnastics, we have been building routines in groups, combing and performing the different movements learnt and practised throughout the unit. Each performance demonstrated great creativity and panache - well done Y5!

Trees have been the order of the day in art, with children experimenting with different brush-strokes to create everything from statuesque pines to weeping willows. The outdoors theme has extended to our work in English, where we continue to enjoy poems within The Lost Words. Children have explored figurative language, in particular using metaphors within kennings and both metaphors and personification within etherees.

Following on from our work on shape in maths, we are now focussing on position and direction. This complements our work in geography where we have been busy looking at maps and grid references, as well as finding out more about the fascinating processes that govern the formation of different coastal features.
