In Y5 we are building a culture of reading for pleasure. Children are encourage to read daily in school and at home. One of the resources we use in Y5 is My Book Blog. We hope this tool will ensure children stay motivated to read! 

MyBookBlog is an online resource designed to enhance children's journeys through well-loved stories. It supports children to choose fantastic books, available in school libraries and book shops, using blurbs, trailers, reviews, and ratings from other children. Children can then read their chosen books at home or at school and complete the activities on MyBookBlog at anytime.

The activities on MyBookBlog encourage children to blog about their thoughts and feelings and explore the subject matter.The activities also support them to fully cpmprehend the text they are reading and learn new vocabulary.

As children read, their homepage grows. As they collect favourite words, facts, cards, maps and timelines, and share their thoughts in their blog; their home page becomes a record of their reading journey.

MyBookBlog currently features units to support over 100 well-loved stories. New units are published every week.

A parent meeting was held on Wednesday 26th September to launch My Book Blog (see presentation below).

Our topic this term is 'Earth and Space' and we are already finding it to be incredibly exciting. We are learning about the Earth, Moon and Sun and are fascinated with facts about astronauts like Tim Peake.

We have a visit to Jodrell bank planned for 4th and 5th October and a computing workshop on 17th/18th October for each class where the children will learn how to make digit models of our solar system.
