Welcome to our Year 5 Blog Zone!

We are going to use our blog as a tool to improve our literacy skills where our focus will be writing. We will be writing for many different purposes which could include persuasion, performance, poetry, prayer and excitement!

We know we will have to try our very best with our writing as our audience is potentially the whole of the world wide web! We would really appreciate you leaving comments so that we can find out what you liked about our writing and tell us how we can improve it. 

All comments will be moderated before going live.

If you have any ideas of what you would like us to blog about, please add your comments below.

All around the world

Jane Stanton (StantonJ) on: Year 5 Blog

Recently in geography, we have been learning about the Amazon river. We used Google Earth to locate the actual river and used atlases to trace the journey one of the longest rivers in the world makes! We located the source of the river (which actually starts in the Andes mountains in Peru) and also noted the mouth of the Amazon - the Atlantic Ocean. We also looked at the tributaries which help form this amazing river in South America.

During our topic on Scandinavia this half term, we have created our own Northern Lights pictures using pastel crayons!
