Welcome to Year 5

Autumn 1

This half term our story time book is Ice Monster by David Walliams.

Geography – The Amazon Rainforest

Where in the Amazon Rainforest? Our topic is the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. We have been focusing on map skills and our ability to identify different countries. we have identified Brazil and other countries the Amazon Rainforest runs through.  We have also looked at the Amazon river and tracked where the river flows to. The children learnt about the layers in the Rainforest and the different tribes who live there. We will learn more about the animals living in the Rainforest when we visit Tropical World later this term.

Science – Animals including humans

How do humans change over time? We are learning to describe the changes as humans develop to old age. We have already created a timeline from foetus to old age describing each stage, looked at the gestation periods of different animals and produced bar and line graphs. Last week we learnt about the development of a foetus and created a diagram.

English – Gangsta Granny

This half term, we are reading ‘Gangast Granny’. We have read how lonely and upset Ben is as he has to spend a lot of time with his Granny who loves cabbage and scrabble. We have written a set if instructions for a recipe including cabbage as that is Granny’s favourite food. The children have come up with cabbage pie, cabbage muffins, cabbage cookies, cabbage ice-cream and cabbage cake.
