Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Inside Out

We are starting summer term with a new topic, titled ‘Inside Out’ and as you might have guessed this is centred around the human body!

In history we will look at how organ transplants have changed over time, explore a range of significant figures related to organ transplantation and discover significant vaccinations throughout history. In science, we will explore the human body in more detail, looking at the different systems and will even create our own blood! Our art lessons will be inspired by Pablo Picasso and we will create our very own cubism style self portraits.

An exciting event for year 5 during the summer term is that we will be studying Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ and perform Shakespeare through drama. The children will be working with an actor from the RSC.

Books we are reading this half term:  ‘Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman and ‘The Clockwork Sparrow' by Katherine Woodfine.
