This Term:


Welcome to Year 5!


This Summer term is full of exciting learning based around our topic of ecology and water! Over the next half term we will be looking at the following topics:
In Literacy we will be researching environmentalism and human impacts on the environment. From this we will be writing various explanation, discussion and persuasion texts. We will also be studying one of Shakespeare's plays (secret until later in the term), which we will re-write as a narrative as well as practising numerous dramatic stage techniques!
In Science we will be learning all about ecology, habitats, animal adaptations, reproduction and human development.

In Art we will be looking at water through the eyes of different artists such as Cezanne, Monet, Constable, Hokusai, O'Keefe etc.

In DT we will be learning about gears, pulleys and wheels with the aim of constructing working water wheels.
