Year 5 Book Week 2022

Book week got off to an amazing start in Year 5.  The theme of World Book Day this year is ‘You are a reader’ and throughout the week, we have given the children lots of opportunities to read and enjoy stories.

We began by focusing on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale ‘The Wild Swans’.  The children took part in some oral story telling sessions and then recreated the story in their own words using a swan template.  We produced a book for the younger children so they could enjoy this beautiful fairy-tale together.  In addition, we scripted and performed a TV news report that explored the main concepts of the tale from a more modern angle.


On Tuesday, we benefitted from a visit from the author Jo Clarke.  It was fantastic to hear about the writing process from a published professional and to pick up some top tips about planning stories and using techniques such as show not tell.


Each class also had the opportunity to decorate their classroom door or window.  Can you guess which Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales we have created? 


Finally, on Friday, we all dressed up as our favourite book characters.  Take a look at our photos and see if you can tell who we are!
