Year 5 – Explanation writing

Recently Mole class were contacted by an alien that wanted to learn about a human lifecycle. This is Nathan’s excellent work!

The Human Life Cycle

Background Information

This piece of text is about the human life cycle, and this shows you how everybody grows up. It shows you everything that you need to know about a human life cycle, from birth until death.

A human starts off as an egg, in the mother’s stomach. This egg is not a chicken egg, it’s an egg that grows up to be a baby in the mother’s stomach. This egg will stay in the mother’s stomach until it grows up to be a baby. When the egg is created in the stomach of the mother, the mother becomes pregnant. The baby comes out at the age of 0. The mother will give birth between 7-13 months.


You become a baby when you are born at the age 0, this will last until about 2 years old.Usually you will be able to walk at age 9mths-2yrs. You learn most things when you are a baby, such as walking, eating; the most important things in life.


You become a child at age 2, and end your childhood at age 13. Childhood is when you start school, to get an education. You need education so that you can get a job when you are older. If you don’t get an education you can’t get a job and earn money. You need a job to pay your bills, and anything else you need (food, water, etc.).

You begin your adolescence stage at the age of 12, and end this stage at age 19, when you become an adult. The adolescence stage is the hardest stage, this is when your whole body changes, and you are becoming an adult. Even you might dislike this stage!


Adulthood begins at age 20, and ends at age 75, this is also the longest stage (55yrs long!). Most people enjoy this stage because you can get married, you can get a job, and you can even have babies of your own! This is a really fun stage, what do you think? At the age of 40 or so, you might grow grey hair.

Old Age

Old age is age 75 until death. Don’t be afraid of death, it’s a natural occurrence. The best way to survive is to be healthy, by eating healthy foods (fruit, vegetables, etc.).

Year 5 Report Writing

This half term Mole class have been learning about a famous Victorian named George Stephenson. Paige has written an excellent report on Mr Stephenson, all of us from Mole class hope you enjoy it! Feedback and comments are welcomed!

All about George Stephenson

Early life

As a child George worked with his dad in coal mines to make money. George did not go to school because his parents couldn’t afford it. He was born on the 9/5/1781.

Why was he famous?

George built the first steam locomotive (a train engine) that was used for passenger trains. George built the locomotive that went from Darlington to Stockton.

The first passenger railway

The railway helped people move around more quickly. In 1819 George was asked to build a
small railway track and it went national. The first iron railway track was built. George guessed that it would go up to 30 miles per hour!

George’s family

George married Francis Henderson in 1832. George had a son called Robert who was able to go to school as George became a rich man after the railway tracks were built. Unfortunately, George’s father was killed by a train!
