We have finished Autumn 2 Term - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

In year 5, we have made wonderful progress towards the end of the year. The children came back to school after the half term fresh faced and eager to learn. This term our topic has been ‘Investigating World Trade’, which we have corporates into all our learning.


In reading and writing we completed King Arthur topic and wrote our discussions regarding whether he was a real person or an exaggerated character from stories. The children researched who he was and how the stories became so famous before deciding what they believed to be true. After this, we began to look at ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’. In reading, we explored the text and the evacuations of WW2 to help the children connect with the text and understand why the children had to leave the city. The children were excited and very inquisitive when learning about the air raids and evacuations of the Second World War. In writing, we read the text and watched clips from the film of Lucy entering the wardrobe. The children then had the opportunity to write their own setting description using their senses as well as using similes, metaphors and parenthesis.


In geography we have been looking at world trade and Fairtrade products. We have explored what Fairtrade is, why it is important and how world trade affects people all over the world. The children have also had the opportunity to explore what food comes from where and how it is imported and exported globally, as well has having the opportunities to try some new fruits from across the globe.


The children have carried on with their city-scapes in art and have created their final piece using the knowledge and skills they have practised over the Autumn term. In P4C, the children have discussed why and what we are grateful for as well as why we should, and we can help other people. All the children had amazing and selfless ideas especially during these tough times. For PE, the children have participated in gymnastics where they have learnt stretches, poses and different ways to travel. With this, the children have created their own routines in groups. When they had time to practise, they performed to the rest of the class where the rest of the children analysed the performances.
