We are very excited to begin the Global Read Aloud here in 5M and what’s even more exciting is we are going to be connecting with another class from overseas (stay tuned for more information!). Each week we will have a chance share our thoughts about the book, whilst also getting to know a bit more about each other and our schools 🙂
The book we have chosen to read is Fish, by LS Matthews. Below you will see a picture of the book’s cover and the text from the blurb. Your task is to write a prediction about the story. Make sure you look closely at the front image and read all the the text so you can justify your prediction. Think about the story’s characters, setting and plot. Good luck!
My story starts the day that my parents told me we must leave our adopted home forever. Because of the soldiers and the drought we barely had enough to eat and we could no longer stay to help the people in our village.
Right before we were leaving I saw a fish in a small brown puddle and I knew I had to take it with me. The journey would be hard to get across the mountains—to the safety of the border and the people there who could help us. Yet when I put the fish in the pot I never realized what we would have to face. It never occurred to me to leave Fish behind.
A subtle and sophisticated exploration of life, the strength of humanity, and survival in an unforgiving world, Fish is a story that will teach those who doubt that, when hope is almost extinguished, miracles can happen.

http://www.thriftwoodbadgeteam.co.uk[/caption%5DHere is a diagram of how to tie a reef knot. Have a go yourself! Don’t forget to take photos of your knot at each of the 4 steps. Good luck 🙂
If you had written instructions rather than pictures, do you think it would be easier to learn how to the knot or harder? Why or why not?
What are some ways in which you follow instructions in your everyday life?
Welcome to the parents and friends who have come along to Open Morning. Here is an activity for you to complete with your children in the classroom…
We are currently looking at shapes and angles in Grade 5. We can classify angles like this:
Acute angles: angles between zero and 90 degrees
Right angles: a 90 degree angle
Obtuse angles: angles between 90 and 180 degrees
Straight angles: a 180 degree angle
Reflex angles: angles between 180 and 360 degrees
Check out the angles around your classroom and complete the polls below. Once everyone has voted, we will be able to see the results.
