MTP SUMMER 2018 - FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER - summer 1 updated.pdf

Topic Letter- Summer Term 2018 updated.pdf

 This term, Year 5 will be learning through our cross-curricular theme of 'Amazon Adventure' where we will learn about the Amazon Rainforest. 

World Book Day

We had a fantastic day on book day.  We shared our favourite stories, dressed as book characters and had lots of fun reading to the children in year 1.  


In our class we are reading the book ' Journey To The River Sea' which follows the adventures of a young girl who has to leave her home in England to live with relatives who live in the Amazon Rainforest. 



Year 5 and 6 have taken part in a maths challenge morning where they had to work in teams of four to solve seven different mathematical logic and reasoning puzzles. 



 We have been estimating and measuring capacity in maths.




Our school follows a Lancashire music scheme. Within this scheme the children learn about music styles, how a song is put together using verses and choruses. The music is appraised by the children who are given opportunities to talk about the song and what they did or did not like about it. They talk about the instruments that they could hear and also about who is singing the song.  This term's song is 'Feel My Love' by Adele. 




We will be learning about the life cycles of plants and animals particularly those whose habitat is the Amazon Rainforest.  




Adventurous Outdoor Pursuits

The children have been working with sports partnerships to work in teams to build shelters which would help them survive outside.  Have a look at our first attempts!
