Stop Motion Animation 

Year 5 have been exploring animation and used the app 'I can animate' to create our own stop motion animations. Our next step was to import our clips into iMovie to add audio and voice recordings but unfortunately we weren't able to this before school closed!

Autumn term- Letters from the Lighthouse

Class trip to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

This term we have been learning about World War 2 and the coastline, relating to our book, Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll. The main characters (Olive and Cliff) were evacuated to the coast. They were living in a lighthouse with a man called Ephraim. We learnt about how lighthouses were helpful to the community, and how they could protect the coast. We looked at coastal landforms and therefore went to see Durdle Door, on our trip. Durdle Door is an archway at Lulworth Cove but unfortunately due to the bad weather it was too slippy for us to get to. We predicted what the bay may look like in hundreds of years. A neighbouring landform, Stair Hole, had lots of caves and other landforms, such as cracks in the rocks and blow holes. We discussed how this would have eroded and what it could look like in the future. We also went to the Visitor’s Centre, where we learnt about different rocks.

Autumn term trip- Lulworth Cove 

Hi there, I hope you guys are all ok.

If you have any worries or concerns during the time school is closed, its good idea to talk to your family, but you can also contact me on my email at school, and I will try to help.

You can also use the ChildLine website. It has lots of useful information, videos, and you can even have a one to one chat in confidence with a trained councillor. Here is the link for you to have a look at the website. It's also good to know that if you need to call the helpline it doesn't show up on any phone bills.

Take care and I hope to see you all soon,

Mrs Weyman
