John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’


End of topic work  w/c 18/5 onwards


There are several possible areas you could investigate, up to and including half term, if you so wish.


TASK 1) What exactly is a beach? This may seem such a simple question, but have you ever wondered where a beach has actually come from and what it actually is?


Are all beaches exactly the same? If not, why not? Does a beach stay the same across time and does every coastal place have a beach, even? 


We'll add some links for you to look at to help in this, but first, please consider these questions and try and work out your own answers!


TASK 2) Once you have answered those questions, have a look at these 3 videos and make notes about coasts, beaches, beach formation and coastal erosion.


RESOURCE 1:  Beach Formation: 


RESOURCE 2: Coastal Erosion:


RESOURCE 3: Long Shore Drift:


TASK 3) Look at the powerpoint below. It explains in further detail how some coastal features are formed. Can you explain how a headland or a bay is created and can you then research to show where in the UK you would find these features. It may be somewhere you have been or somewhere you hope to go once we are able to fully travel again!

Topic- w/c 11th May


WALA: Coasts


Task 1: What is a coast? Which coastal areas have you visited? As part of your first topic task for the week, we would like you to think about what a coast actually is. Which coastal places have you heard of? Are they all the same and which ones have you actually visited yourselves already?


Before we give you any more clues, please try and answer these questions for yourselves. Feel free to use the internet to help you, or a dictionary or encyclopaedia. Or, better still, can you pick the brains of your family members, discuss it together and see what you can come up with as a family? 


You could show this information as a poster, or as a mind-map type diagram- or even as a picture or map that you could draw yourselves. How you show this information is up to you!


Go for it!



Task 2


WALA: where in the world are volcanoes?


Last week, you were locating the equator. the poles and the tropics on a world map. This week, use  your world map knowledge to locate the famous volcanoes around the world.


You will need an atlas OR a world map chart. If you haven't one, use this:


Next, look at this week's volcano worksheets, choose you ability and have a go. REMEMBER, DON'T LOOK AT THE ANSWER SHEETS UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE.


Remember, you can share your work on the Year 5 blog. Mr G and I would love to see what you have done.
