In Year 5, we have had some amazing new arrivals this week! As part of our topic on the environment, climate change and sustainability, we had a delivery of fertilised eggs – who have hatched into chicks and one surprise duckling! We have spent time learning about the life cycle of these animals, showing empathy whilst learning how to care for them. They are growing very quickly and have been a very popular addition to the school this week!

Check out the videos of them here:

During the Spring term, Year 5 shall be continuing to learn about number in Maths, with a particular focus on fractions, decimals and percentages. In Literacy, we are firstly studying Alfred Noyes' Gothic narrative poem, The Highwayman;  next, we will be learning about Shakespeare, with a visit from the fantastic Young Shakespeare acting company! 

Our Science topic for the Spring term is Materials and Their Properties, so children will be exploring why materials have different purposes through a range of investigations.

In Topic, we are learning all about Chocolate, including the history of chocolate, the geographical locations of chocolate ingredients and how chocolate is designed and packaged in DT.

Our trips this term will include a RE trip to a Buddhist place of worship. For PE, children need to put their dancing shoes on as we learn country dancing!
