Welcome to Year 5
Last half term, we kicked off our explosive ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ topic by investigating where the ferocious volcanoes of the Earth can be found, how they come to exist and the threats they present to humans nearby. We also discovered how to build earthquake-proof buildings!
Next in our fascinating topic, we’re leaving behind the ‘shaking’ and ‘rattling’, and focusing on the ‘rolling’ element! That’s right – we’re jumping in a time machine and taking Year 5 back to the Stone Age, before taking them on a tour through the action-packed Bronze and Iron ages.
We’ll be doing some amazing activities this half term, including cave painting, stone-age jewellery making, and discovering what the diets were like for the people in these ages – we can’t wait to get started!
