Year 5

Welcome to Year 5.  We are looking forward to a very enjoyable and successful year with lots of exciting topics and great learning opportunities. We hope that this page will give you all the information that you need but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask a member of the Year 5 team.


Term 4 - 'Into the Amazon'




Our topic this term is Into the Amazon where we will be learning about the beauty and diversity of the Amazon Rainforest. We will look at South America, its features and geographical regions, comparing this to the UK. We will research the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro and write reports about it. Finally, we will learn about the threats facing the Amazon and the indigenous people who live there, such as deforestation. In our art lessons, we will be using different types of printing to create a layered print based on the beauty of the rainforest. At the end of the term, we will have a visit from lots of rainforest creepy crawlies and other fascinating creatures!
