Year 5 Mars Learning: Expressive Reading
This week, we have been learning all about the magical planet of Mars. Using videos, articles and websites, children have gathered many facts and figures about this fascinating world outside of Earth (linking heavily with the Space learning in Science last half term).
Using this knowledge, the children are going to turn it into a speech from another planet. Firstly, we decided to read a speech from a film linked to Mars (The Martian). Mr Downie read it first. Unfortunately, it was so boring and monotone, we nearly fell asleep! Therefore, we needed to show how to read it with expression. Here’s some snapshots of us practising!
