Autumn Term 1

A big welcome to all the new members of Class 5 - we have a very exciting year ahead. This first topic is called Frozen Kingdom and we will be learning all about icebergs, polar animals, the effects of climate change on the polar regions and many other things.

Week 3:

This week we have been looking at poetry and creating poems about the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). The children thought of some beautiful imagery to describe this amazing phenomenon. Below are some examples of their work.

We have also completed (and written in our best handwriting) our descriptions of the icebergs we started last week. Below is an example of Harvey's work where he uses some fantastic adjectives and imagery.

Week 1

We have had a brilliant first week back and are already well on our way with our new topic. This week we looked at how icebergs form, the effects of climate change on them and how they change over time.
