Last half term our topic was Rivers & Natural Disasters

During the last half term, Year 5 studied rivers and naturals disasters.

For Topic launch day, we visited the River Beal in Shaw, looking at its proximity to the mills and the pollution. We studied the different features of a river and wrote a diary entry, taking on the role of a leaf as it journeyed through a river system. To secure our understanding, we spent the day at The Castleshaw Centre where we walked up to the source of a river, identifying the different features we had learned about. As you can see in one of the pictures above, Isabelle found the source which was rather muddy.

In English we had the opportunity to devise our own Greek mythical characters, and we wrote our own myths using our creations.
