Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 children have made an excellent start to the year and are looking forward to the challenges ahead. This term, they will think about the question ‘What makes the Earth Angry?’ in the ‘Volcanoes and Earthquakes’ topic. Everyone has made a great start to their understanding of volcanoes with their fantastic art.



Writing Stories

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.


Freshwater Theatre

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.
