Michael Rosen - 2018

On Monday 24th September, Michael Rosen did a live stream promoting his work. As we are currently studying his poems, we decided to send him an email with the hope he might give us a shout out. If you skip to 1h 39min, you will hear Michael Rosen reading out an email sent from Miss Barclay and Miss Longley about our topic and how much we have enjoyed it. Amazingly, Michael Rosen even reads out an extract from Aston's poem in 5L. DWE is famous!

Michael Rosen poems - 2018

In literacy, we have been looking at the poet style of the poet Michael Rosen. We looked in particular at his poem the bathroom fiddler. We used this poem as inspiration for our own poems and then we performed them for the class. I hope you enjoy our performances.

Roald Dahl Day

This week in Literacy, year 5 have been writing poems inspired by Roald Dahl. On Thursday, we dressed up as a character from one of his books and performed the poems in a group.
Thank you for the time and effort put into all of the costumes, we had a great day and lots of fun watching each other perform a poem!
