Year 5 Spring term 2020

Look up and you might sense the stars slotting together like pieces of a giant galactic jigsaw puzzle

 

Hop on to our moon buggies and get ready for a tour around our solar system. We will be exploring Earth and Space, including the other planets that orbit the sun and studying famous astronauts' lives through biographical reading and writing. 

 

We will be designing and making a moon buggy with cam mechanism that will then be used to feature in our very own space animations, merging together DT, Computing and Art projects. 

 

We are very lucky that we will be able to explore the solar system, as a planetarium will be visiting us to show us a 360 degree view of the vastness of our universe. We are looking forward to our exciting term. Ready for lift off! 

 

After the half term, “Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” 

Year 5 will be having the greatness of William Shakespeare thrust upon them this half term since they will be introduced to a whole new world of wonders. The children will be exploring the features of play scripts through analysing and acting out parts of William Shakespeare's work such as The Tempest, Romeo & Juliet and many more.  You shall see wonders when you come to see our Shakespeare showcase, which will be taking place on 19th March.
