We have been really enjoying basing our learning in English on Anthony Horrowitz's book: Stormbreaker. As part of this, we wrote some non-chronological reports. Firstly, we designed our own gadgets that Alex Rider, the man character, might use. Then, we carried out some research on the Portugese Man o' war that the book's villain, Herod Sayle, keeps in his office. We worked in pairs and used different apps on the Ipads to present this as a report too.

We started the year by revising word classes. To begin with, we worked in table teams to sort words into their different classes, depending on their purpose within a sentence. We realised that words are not always fixed in one class, but in different contexts can fit different classes. For example, the word 'fear' can be used both as a verb and a noun:

 

"I fear spiders."

"My fear of spiders is very great."
