In geography, we will be studying volcanoes. We will begin by investigating the layers of the Earth, then taking a look at why volcanoes form. Further to this, we'll take part in a drama-based activity, imagining we are managing the safety of a community during a volcanic eruption.

Reading

We expect all our children to read every evening and at weekends. In Year 5, 20 minutes should be a minimum but, if your child can't put their book down because they are so engrossed, that's the magic of reading.  Please ensure you sign the reading log to confirm this reading is taking place.
