Year 5

Welcome to Year 5! We are known as 'The Sharks' at Walbottle Village Primary and our teacher is Miss Graham.
 
Our summer topic is 'Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside'. We are learning about what effect the industrial revolution had on Britain and what the introduction of the railways across the UK meant for the tourism industry. We will be comparing the seaside in the past to today.
 
Our class novel this term is Danny, the Champion of the World; a 1975 children's book by Roald Dahl. The plot centers on Danny, a young English boy, and his father, William, who live in a Gypsy caravan fixing cars for a living and partake in poaching pheasants. The children are absolutely loving the story so far!
