The Snowman

As it is nearly Christmas year 5 have started a new topic, which is the snowman. Mr Prosser has decided that we should do the display in the class room. Some of us was doing the snowman that is the main picture on the display wall. Some of us done the letters of THE SNOWMAN, also some people did the back ground for the snowman. Every day Mr Prosser picks a name out of the bag Thomas curry and Leanne peach chosen to eat the first two chocolates, Out of the advent calendar.
This is the snowman.

Christmas

The Christmas Feeling
It’s the beginning of December, the season of good cheer! Leading in to Christmas, our class has transformed into a miniature Santa’s work shop, so Mr Prosser is Santa teaching the elves (which is us).
In Dyson class, Mr Prosser has been busy decorating our class into a winter wonderland. A Christmas tree had appeared from thin air covered in shimmering decorations, presents are hovering everywhere,(literally).

Here is a Christmas acrostic poem:
C is for the candy canes around the Christmas tree,
H is for the happiness of all the family.
R is for the reindeer prancing by the window pane.
I is for the icing on the cake as sweet as sugar cane
S is for the stockings on the chimney wall,
T is for the toys beneath the tree so tall,
M is for the mistletoe where everyone is kissed,
A is for the angels who make up the Christmas list.
and S is for the Santa who brings you lots of sweets,
And that is your Christmas list of treats.

Reception Buddies

Reception Buddies
Since we have some new receptions joining the school, we were given the responsibility to look out for them and make sure they are safe. Sometimes we even go and play with them during school hours. We also often play with them at break time. Connecting with their comments, we surprise them by making them laugh, cheer them up when they are upset and comfort them whenever they need us. Also they have a lot of fun.
Our buddies are friends, they make us happy too. They are enjoying their time at Simon de Senlis school and are being encouraged to make new friends. Also, they’re gaining their confidence to meet new children and learning to do new things. The buddy idea was created to give the children a chance to meet their learning target and to get used to our school. Our goal is to make our little friends smile, for them to express their feelings to us, to trust us.

Half term (a bit late)

Our Special Half Term!!!

MY THRILLER EXPIRIENCE BY EVIE
It was very special to me because I really love Michael Jackson and my nan and granddad bought me the tickets. When they played thriller the zombies jumped out at us!

ENGLAND VS AUSTRAILIA BY Lucy!
I watched the game and I loved it because the Australians had a cut eye and the England man’s split ear. Courtney Laws amazing tackles.

MY CUPCAKE EXPERIENCE BY KASEY
I had walked to the shop with my sister to get the ingredients for my vanilla cupcakes and my chocolate cupcakes. My vanilla cupcakes I made them look like a butterfly witch they were called butterfly cakes.

My animation by Kevin

Over the half term ,I entered my animation into a contest , the prize is a prop from a movie.

Arsenal Vs. Liverpool by Kansi
Over the half term I watched Arsenal against Liverpool. I enjoyed it since if Liverpool won they would be top of the table by 1point. If Arsenal won they would be top by 5 points. It was a big game and Arsenal won. Boo Liverpool and all Liverpool supporters. Their next game was against Brussia Dortmund.

My trip to Birmingham by Alicia Lam

During the half term, I went shopping in Birmingham. We didn’t buy anything though! I liked eating in a noodle bar for breakfast. Because we didn’t buy anything in Birmingham, we bought mostly everything we wanted to buy in Birmingham, on the internet!

The Butterfly Lion

 

The butterfly lion is by Michael morpurgo .
We have been learning about the butterfly lion in literacy,
And we have been writing about it to.
The butterfly starts with a boy at boarding school who runs away and gets bullied
On his way he meets an old lady called millie
In Africa there is a boy called Bertie and he rescues a lion called the butterfly lion.
Bertie takes the lion to his farm as well as the mother. Bertie’s dad has to kill the lion’s mother because she chases his dad’s cattle so he shot her. So that left the lion on his own.
One day Bertie’s dad went out and saw a Frenchman who was looking for some lions for his circus, so his dad said we have got a beautiful white lion. The Frenchman was pleased, as Bertire was going to boarding school in England soon, it made sense. said you can have are lion said Bertie’s dad.
When Bertie’s dad had got home he told Bertie that he was selling the lion to the Frenchman but bertie shouted, “You cant you cant!”
Bertie’s dad said, “We are we can’t keep him here for ever.”
And that is a bit of the butterfly lion
