Year 5 Summer 2 Curriculum Snapshot:

"We have enjoyed learning about floods on Natural Disasters Day and how they're created. We have also enjoyed publishing our non-chronological reports, where we displayed them in a creative way and worked as a team. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of Southampton, including the Spitfire, Docks, Mayflower and Titanic. In D.T. we were shocked that our garlic and watercress dip tasted so delightful."
