Welcome to Year 5
A warm welcome to year 5H! My name is Mrs Hussain and I am the year 5 class teacher. I am really looking forward to the academic year and teaching all the children in year 5.
This term Year 5 are on a mission to create a Polar survival kit. Year 5 were sent an email from subzero about a crash, they required our help to create survival kits so they could have a safe return. As a result, we will be working hard exploring the Polar regions through their topic Pole to Pole.
In geography, we will be investigating why the Polar regions have extreme cold climates and locating the Polar regions on a map. We will be investigating the Titanic and what caused it to sink. In maths, we will be measuring angles, area and perimeter of icebergs and pack ice. In art, we will be carving famous Inuit pictures in bars of soap. In science, we will be looking at polar adaptations and habitats. In literacy, using the book Shackleton's Journey by William Grill, we will be writing persuasive letters to be part of his mighty crew. We will also be writing a non-chronological report about polar bears and persuading Miss Cooper to allow us to adopt a penguin.
