Year 5E- The Man on the Moon.
Week beginning 14.12.2015
Throughout the week, we have been carrying out activities related to 'The Man on the Moon' advert during our Guided Reading sessions, following on from our diary entry last week in Literacy.
We have discussed the man's thoughts, feelings and emotions and used our understanding to work in groups and write a letter to the man on the moon. We then tied our letters to a balloon and let them go, to be delivered to the moon.
We also looked at the real message behind the advert, really thinking deeper than just the advertisement. We thought about how hard it must be for elderly people and discussed love and care, being great qualities to have.
From this, we created our own Christmas cards to give to a local care home. We have received photographs of the elderly looking at the cards, as well as a thank you letter.
Well done Year 5, you've all really taken on board the message and have done a great job in all of your tasks!
