Shipgate

Everything Earthquakes & Vibrant Volcanoes!

This week Shipgate have been busy learning about all things earthquakes with Mr Paterson. The children first enjoyed investigating how earthquakes occur before working hard to create posters to tell people what they should do in the event of an earthquake in order to survive.

Sticking with this earthquake theme, Shipgate edited their story plans from last week to change the problem in the story from a volcano to an earthquake. The children are very excited about writing the new versions of their stories next week, applying the top tips they have learnt this week about how to write a brilliant story.

Within the other areas of the curriculum, the children have enjoyed the following: consolidating their understanding of coordinates within 4 quadrants, creating freeze frames to represent miracles in RE, and producing some fantastic volcano art with straws – there were some wonderful masterpieces!

We hope you all have another wonderful bank holiday and enjoy the three day weekend!

See you all on Tuesday,

The Year 5 Team.
