Year 5 2021 - 2022
To infinity and beyond!
The Spring term has lots of interesting topics to get the children excited. The theme of the first half term is ‘Earthling’. The children will be learning all about Earth and Space in Science and will use their knowledge to create a non-fiction booklet in English. They will learn about Tim Peake - inspirational man who became the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station and conduct a spacewalk. The children will study what makes a great biography and write one on Tim Peake.
In R.E, the children will learn about Jesus being a good leader. They will listen to, retell and discuss parables from the Bible. They will carefully consider the messages of the parables and how they impact on the lives of Christians today.
In Geography, the children will learn about the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. They will look at the flags, flowers, capital cities and places of interest that make these countries unique. In Art, the children will study the life and work of the British textile designer, William Morris.
Our PSHE topic this half term is called ‘Be yourself’. The children will learn to recognise what constitutes as a healthy relationship and develop skills to form and maintain positive and healthy relationships both online and offline.
