Our topic for the summer term is ‘Your Country Needs You!’ which is based all around the history of World War II. During lessons we will study how the war started, who was involved and the famous faces of WW2 including Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler. Children will lots of opportunities to learn about key events such as The Blitz, rationing and evacuation. We will link all our computing work to our history and the children will work each week towards a presentation on WW2. This topic is always a favourite of the children (and staff!) and promises to inspire the children in all curriculum areas.

The children in Year 5 designed and made their own Volcano Sculpture as part of our Geography topic this half term. To tie in with Arts Week and the theme of 'Water', we have thought about different volcanoes that are partly underwater. The children enjoyed using paper mache to build their volcano and secure its shape.

As part of our focus on Mountains and Volcanoes, the children have been working hard to plan a route for the emergency services to rescue an injured hiker who is stranded on a mountain. We had to think carefully about which route we would take and any obstacles that we might face on the way. The children worked in pairs to plan their route and shared their route with the class at the end of the lesson. We have put some pictures of this work in our gallery.
In English, Year 5 have been studying the poem 'Flanders Field' by John McCrae. Here are our performances of the poem:
