Year 5 Summer 2 Curriculum Snapshot

"Yet again, the trips we have been on have been enjoyable. Visiting Southampton Mosque and the Solent Sky Museum helped with our learning and was really interesting. We have enjoyed learning about the Spitfire, Titanic and Jane Austen and why they are important to Southampton; it was fascinating learning about our local history. Publishing our writing into waterfall booklets was good and allowed us to be creative with our publishing and we also enjoyed weaving in art."
