Welcome to the Year 5 page! A warm welcome back to all Year 5 children and parents.
This year, we will be: making a difference in the world, becoming masters of our learning, digging deeper into the mysteries of the world around us and discovering more about ourselves and those around us!
A warm welcome back to all Year 5 children and parents! I hope you had a wonderful Easter break. We had a fantastic Spring Term, full of adventures around Nottingham, laughter in learning and a thought-provoking liturgy; these activities allowed all the children to shine, making us all very proud. This term, we will continue to inspire creativity and vision by exploring this topic….
This topic is designed to allow you to make the most of your final term in Year 5, whilst preparing you for your next adventure in Year 6! We will be delving into the history of Africa and once again, using primary and secondary sources to immerse ourselves in historical knowledge.
This term, in Science, we will be investigating: how have plants and animals adapted since the beginning of time? We are lucky to have a visitor from Nottingham University to tell us more about this topic. We will also be exploring microorganisms—what are the different types of microorganism and what do they do?
Through Geography and History, we will investigate how Africa. What can we learn about the African Ancient City of Benin? How is the geography of Africa similar/ different to Britain?
Adventuring outside, we will explore the beauty in nature through more of our Forest School sessions. In DT, we will exploring African cooking. Get ready for some Year 5 sous chefs at home! There is a final Tennis session on Tuesday 17th April, then Yr 5 will develop their Athletics skills. Dance sessions will be on Friday afternoon Our Art lessons will explore African art work, culminating in making African Masks. We will also continue our Life Skills lessons, which Year 5 have approached in a mature and thoughtful manner. We will also have two NFFC Street-aware sessions as part of our life-skill development.
Year 5 – what can you teach me about our topic? Research your own information and present this in any way you like… Powerpoint presentation, poster, even a YouTube video. I can’t wait to see what you can create!
