Welcome to Year 5
In Autumn term, Year 5 were studying 'the Victorians'. As part of this topic, they read and did work in Literacy based on the book 'A Christmas Carol' By Charles Dickens, which is about a mean man who is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. They also looked at the Victorian period through a historical, geographical and artistic perspective in their topic work.
The children studied the life and art of William Morris as part of the Victorian topic.
In Spring term, Year 5 will be studying 'Natural Disasters'. As part of this we will be learning about different climate across the world and the impact it has on humans and livestock. We will be composing an expressive piece of music based on what we have learnt. We will also be capturing different scenes of weather with textiles.
The children are pictured making a model of a natural disasters out of paper mache, including an erupting volcano and a tsunami.
Today, Tuesday 13 March 2018, we shared what we have learnt on Natural Disasters with the rest of KS2 during our class assembly. It was a big success with lots of questions and answers.
In Summer term, Year 5 will be learning about "Ancient Greece". As part of this topic we will be learning about how the Ancient Greeks lived, what they ate, their inventions that we still use today and what they believed.
