On our transition day in July, we did some brilliant writing and drawings, which you can see up in our new classroom.
We used our imaginations to write the ending to a short story we watched called Never Give Up. This is going to be our class motto this year. We discussed as a class that this motto will help us through Year 5. Although the work may be more challenging, we must 'Never Give Up' and keep trying our best. Our determination and hard work will be the key to our successes!
We also began our first project that we will be continuing in our first two weeks in Class Buxton in preparation for Roald Dahl Day on September 13th. We will be reading and working around his famous book The BFG - The Big Friendly Giant. We read the beginning of the book and watched the first part of the cartoon film. We looked at the artist Quentin Blake and drew some of the items we saw and read, including the dream blower trumpet, the BFG's suitcase and snozzcumbers! We also wrote and decorated our own dream jars with what we hope to achieve in Year 5. We will look back at these at the end of the year to see if we achieved them.
As a new teacher to Marlpool Junior School this September, I am really looking forward to working with my new Year 5 class, especially after meeting everybody on transition day! I am also looking forward to seeing their giants that they have created over the summer holidays as homework and have left space on our BFG display for them!
