Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed practising their dance skills in weekly dance lessons led by Mrs. Adams. In the final session, the class performed their street dance for Year 6.
Year 5 led the carol service in church, with the story of ‘Home for Christmas’ which reminded us of the importance of thinking about people who are less fortunate than ourselves.
In Literacy lessons, the children have looked in detail at the language features of different texts and the techniques that authors use in their writing. By experimenting with different sentence types, broadening vocabulary knowledge and editing their work, the pupils are now writing creatively and confidently.
An ‘explorer’ from the Freshwater Theatre visited Year 5 to help the children learn about earthquakes and volcanoes through drama. The class were taken on a journey around the world, where they visited famous volcanoes and earthquake zones. They were able to imagine what it would be like living in an earthquake zone and how their daily lives would be affected by earthquakes of different magnitudes.
Year 5 enjoyed a visit to the beach at Crosby where they learned about coastal features. They also enjoyed looking at ‘Another Place’, sculpted by Antony Gormley.
As part of their RE learning, children from Y5 visited St Mary’s church to look at symbols and colours. What can you spot when you visit church?
