Year 5 Learning

Year 5 have been exploring their topic of 'Extreme Weather through the books of 'The Wizard of Oz' by L.F.Baum. The children explored writing of the setting and description of the cyclone wreaking havoc through the farm, before whisking Dorothy away to the Land of Oz.


Here are some fabulous quotes from their writing:


Charley, 5Q "The cyclone eagerly approached my farm like a predator stalking it's prey. I was greatly struggling to keep hold of Toto, my dog. I felt like I was being whipped by a violent blast which hurt like I was being beaten by a boxer."

Ava, 5R "Frantically, houses galloped through the fields in desperation, looking to escape the hellish nightmare."

Daniel, 5S "As the sound became louder and louder, I witnessed the large deadly cyclone invading the farm like a demon bear. Unrecognisable objects flung across the dark, gloomy sky."
