Our new topic is 'Africa' and we can not wait to discover more about this fascinating continent. We shall be reading Journey to Jo'berg and basing our own writing on this and a short film called 'Zahra'. Exploring the different landscapes, plants and animals of this incredible country will aid our understanding of the texts.
We were excited to carry on with our learning and working on our topic 'Survival' did not disappoint. We found out about expeditions to Antarctica, developed our navigation skills around our local area using a compass, created art work in the style on Banksy and learnt a lot about fractions. On the lead up to Easter we travelled back in time to find out how people survived Victorian England and how the past has impacted our lives today. Much of our work was based around Street Child by Berlie Doherty.
Year 5 loved learning about ‘Out of this world’ during the Autumn Term.
