We have had a busy day creating an Island Writing Area. We are reading the story ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ and are really enjoying it. We’ve now got an area in class in which we can independently write about life on the island.
Year 5 have been working really hard at home to design and make a model boat which floats on water.
Well done everyone, they look fantastic!
We’ve had a fantastic day visiting the Year 6’s Campaign stalls. We’ve listened to their speeches persuading us to vote for them. Well done to all the Year 6 children.
We’ve had a fun start to the new unit of music for this half term. Our unit is Livin’ On A Prayer. We are studying Rock music and how it has developed from the Beatles onwards. We will be analysing performances from different rock bands and learn to sing a variety of Rock songs.
This week we have listened to Livin’ On A Prayer which is a classic rock song from the 80s. Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi is an American rock band from New Jersey named after it’s lead singer Jon Bon Jovi. The band became known for writing several rock anthems and achieved widespread recognition with their third album, Slippery when Wet, released in 1986.
We listened to the music and discussed these questions:
Do you like the song?
What can you hear?
What is the style of the music?
How is the song put together?
Which instruments plays the solo?
Why don’t you have a try at home!
