Class 5 WC 27.02.17

Well done to Jake and Leah on achieving joint most points, both having a very positive week and producing some excellent work. A HUGE well done to Callum for his student of the week award, this was given for improving his attendance and completing all his work to a high standard, keep it up!

This week in English, Class 5 have enjoyed learning about writing opinion pieces. This culminated with the class writing their own song reviews on some modern day hits. Students listened carefully to songs by Daft Punk, Ed Sheeran, Bastille and Coldplay. They then dissected each song and reviewed it, analysing the lyrics and giving (at times, very critical!) opinion using a wide range of adjectives. Most songs got the thumbs up from the panel, although Coldplay should be very thankful that the members of Class 5 were not part of the music press when they released ‘The Scientist’ in 2002...

As it was pancake Tuesday the choice of cooking was a fairly easy one this for Class 5. Joined by a few very helpful members of Class 6, stacks of high quality pancakes were produced. Toppings ranged from chocolate spread and syrup to fresh fruit for those who opted for the healthier option.
