Year 5

Year 5 Picasso Class

Teachers: Miss Dunn and Miss Sanchez
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Huby and Miss Johnstone

We are Upper Juniors!

This term started with a bang for Year 5 after enjoying the excitement of going outward bound at Carotty Wood.  This was a fantastic trip where the children really showed us their adventurous sides, completing challenging activities such as high ropes, BMXing and raft building to name but a few. Well done Year 5 you were all AMAZING!

In class we are exploring South America, and Brazil in particular.   The children will be learning about the rich Brazilian rainforests; including the wealth of plants & animals that live there as well as the problems the rainforests are facing.  Well also be looking at the cities of Brazil, exploring the cultures, food music and art.

In English we looking deeper into non-fiction texts, and the adventure genre.

In maths it’s all about decimals this term.  And for science we are starting our  life cycles topic. Which will lead into Sex Ed after half term.

Also nearer the end of the year we are hoping to have a Brazilian Carnival week.  We will keep you posted!

Our long term plan can be found here.
