Welcome to the Autumn Term 2021!
In Year 5, we have read the book ‘A Boy and a Bear in a Boat’ by Dave Shelton. We created a recipe for our very own unique sandwich! Through this book, we explored the seas and oceans and created a presentation in geography and computing. We also learnt about forces in science, with many practical activities to help us learn about gravity and pulleys. We are currently reading ‘Shackleton’s Journey’ by William Grill. This shares Shackleton’s journey to Antarctica, through which we will be learning about climate zones and longitude and latitude in geography. We will also learn about different water colour techniques to create a wonderful piece of artwork showcasing different sea creatures. We have learnt place value, statistics and addition and subtraction in mathematics. We are also very excited about our rock heroes on TT Rockstars to help us practise our times tables.
