I wanted to wish a huge thank you personally for all the support you as parents and carers have given to the class this year - it is hugely appreciated. Thank you as well for warm wishes and gifts I have received as I head onto a new adventure. It has been a pleasure to teach your children.
We've been learning not just to say whether we like poems or not but to justify our choice by discussing how figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification) can be used effectively to describe or evoke emotion. Listen to an excerpt of our class analysis of the use of figurative language in poems we have been looking at!
THANKYOU YEAR 5! You have all been incredibly good helpers at this morning's Macmillan Coffee morning!
