This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Our topic this term is “What if I lived in Africa?” which will involve looking at the varied countries and features of the continent of Africa, and with a focus on South Africa. As a Geography based topic we will learn about the geography of the planet; including where the Equator, tropics and polar regions are. Within English we will work on a biography of Nelson Mandela and a ‘big write’ which will involve the children developing their character description and scene setting writing skills.
Our SPaG (spelling grammar and punctuation) continues from last year now working on the Y5 curriculum. In Maths we are going to be revisiting basic skills and Place Value, then working on addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The popular weekly Times tables challenge has already begun and the children are challenging themselves to improve by half term!
Our Science this term is “Properties and changes of Materials”. The class will be investigating the different properties of materials, separating mixtures and reversible/irreversible changes.
