To love, learn and grow together

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Our Autumn term topic is

Chocolate (Marvellous Myans)

For our topic we will be investigating where chocolate comes from and how it is produced, where the Mayan’s lived, why they chose to settle where they did and why they valued the cocoa bean so highly. 

In English, we will be reading ‘Journey to the river sea' by Eva Ibbotson, a brilliant adventure story about a young orphan that goes to live with her long lost relatives in Brazil, escorted by her governess. We will be using this as inspiration for a range of writing.

In year 5 science we will be learning about living things and their natural habitats. 

For maths this term our focus will be on place value, addition and subtraction.

In PE our outdoor PE coaches will be teaching tag rugby and indoor PE we will be focussing on components of fitness including speed, stamina, strength, coordination, balance and agility.

Our RE focus this term is exploring 'What does it mean if God is holy and loving?'.

The all-class book we will read this term is a thrilling adventure story - Kensukey's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.
