Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 Home Page!


Throughout Spring term, Year 5 have been learning all about Rainforests and South America. The children have created information texts about animals found in the Amazon Rainforest as well as persuasive travel leaflets to encourage us to visit a location in South America! We will be moving onto writing poetry and journey narratives. Furthermore, we have been reading 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell, which the children are thoroughly enjoying.  In Art and DT, we have been creating animal prints using relief printing and we are going to be researching, designing and creating a recipe inspired by ingredients found in South America.

In Science, we have looked at the theory of evolution. We are now beginning to learn about and  investigate electricity. 

In Maths, we have been learning about fractions and we will be moving onto decimals and percentages.

Thank you for everything you do to support your child.
