English - Deadly 60
Our English text for this term is Deadly 60 by Steve Backshall. The children are loving reading this book and finding out about all of the deadly animals! Here are our door displays and some examples of our non-chronological reports.
Science - Life Cycles
One of the Science units in Summer term is learning about Life Cycles of different groups of animals and plants. This year, Y5 were lucky enough to have witnessed the life cycle of a butterfly; they managed to grow 6 butterflies successfully from the larva (caterpillar) stage! They were all very excited to release them this term, too!
We are looking forward to seeing you all at Sports Day again this year.
Science - Our Bodies
Another exciting unit in Science in Y5 is when we learn all about "Our Bodies". Children particularly find it fascinating learning about the blood; Y5 made their own "blood" this term, choosing items that would represent platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells and plasma!
Topic - South America
As part of our South America unit, children explored the Amazon river. They also learned about the Ring of Fire and locations of volcanoes and earthquakes affecting South America.
