For our second unit of English this term Year 5 have been learning how to write an explanation text. This has engaged the children in a range of different structural and language features used for this style of writing. Our main focus was the use of cause and effect sentences where the children have been explaining the process of bubble-net feeding. The context of this unit was based around how a small proportion of Humpback Whales have learnt how to work together to hunt for herring. The children have found this especially interesting and shown excellent engagement whilst learning a great deal about this style of writing.
