As part of #rosendalemediaweek17 year five have been learning about what makes a good radio package. We were lucky enough to have BBC World Service producer Tim Allen come in to talk to us about his experiences and share with us what it takes to make a radio show. We’ll be putting his tips to good use later this week when we make our own broadcasts.
Next week will be our second Rosendale Media Week. The theme this year is “bringing stories to life” and the children will be creating articles for the school magazine and multimedia content themed around the books in Rosendale Book Club.
Last week in Literacy we read the poem The Highway Man and did some fantastic writing.
Can you use similes and/or metaphors to describe the Highwayman? Comment below.
Everyone needs to learn both lists this week!
High frequency words – y/ies endings –
Key words for maths
Here’s the video we watched in class. Can you think of any questions you have about climate change that haven’t been answered? Post them below.
We are now doing two lists of spellings. Children have been told in class which list to focus on for the week, however they are welcome to learn both lists and do both tests if they would like the challenge.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Easter holidays and gets a well earned rest.

Yesterday we had Dr Hugh Hunt, a professor at Cambridge University, come to speak to all Year 5 about the impact of climate change and what we can do about it. The children found it fascinating, and it has hopefully inspired the students with our topic. We learned about the causes of climate change, why cow’s farts matter and what we can do about it
Here are some videos of the talk.
