Welcome to Doves Class Page!
The children have settled into Year 5 beautifully and have completed some interactive, unfolding adventure stories as part of our mini-topic focused on Doves. This week, we have launched our topic for this half term, To Infinity and Beyond, which is focused on Space and the Solar System. We'll share our journey with you on our class page so watch this space!

This week, we have been exploring the impact of sentence length and structure on the reader in English and the opening chapter of Cakes in Space (by the wondrous Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre!) gave us such exciting language to play with! The children were intrigued by their description of space as 'an ocean of blackness' so we also started to explore metaphors ... more of that to come when we launch into our 'Space Secret' poetry next week!
Congratulations to this week's Writing Goal Scorers - it took me a long time to decide!
