The Magic Box

Last term we looked at a wonderful poem by Kit Wright. We discussed it with Mrs Ward and Mrs Howison and then had a go at writing our own.
We worked hard on including language features to make our writing richer; alliteration, personification, adjectives, adverbs and abstract ideas.
We found images to support our poem on the internet and then put it together using Keynote.

Here are our poems.

Adam's Magic Box
Brydie's Poem

Gemma's Poem

George's Magic Box

Kezia's Poem
Lydia's Poem
Nate's Magic Box
Phoebe's Poem
Safiya's Magic Box
Trinity's Magic Box
Thomas' Poem

Our Environmental Inquiry Evening

Last Term a group of 15 Year 5 and 6 students involved in an extension opportunity with Mrs Hunter hosted an evening to share and celebrate the end product of extensive inquiry spinouts. An environmental theme produced a diverse range of questions and directions for student research. The evening was a huge success with in excess of 55 parents and friends in attendance. As many of the students selected Powerpoint as a medium in which to present their work, posting their work on the Blog was difficult. We have included a slide or two from individual projects alongside photographs from the evening.
