What will we do in the summer term
in Year 5?
In English, we are reading stories from and about the Amazon Rainforest which will lead us into writing our own Amazon stories. This will link to art where we will study the work of Dawn Maciocia. In geography, we will think about how humans have made an impact on this beautiful part of the world.
Later in the term, we change our focus to the myths of ancient Greece. We will read examples of myths and produce our own in English. In art, we will try our hand at observational drawing of Greek artefacts and in history we will find out just how ancient Greece worked.
Maths will complete our work on fractions, decimals and percentages and then move on to shape and space.
What happened after Pentecost is the theme in RE. Later, we will be thinking about The Lord's Prayer and women of the Bible.
In science, we will be taking a close look at life cycles. To help us to understand animal and plant life cycles, we will visit 'Bring Yer Wellies' in May for an exciting and educational day out.
This term Y5 will continue swimming lessons. We have a good mix of PE topics this term – cricket and athletics. There will also be some one-off events through the term. Look out for more information in the news letters.
We certainly have a busy but interesting time ahead of us.
