Our Topic this Term is Paradise. The children will be investigating the Amazon, concentrating on key physical and human characteristics such as the weather, environmental impact and the impact of tourism. In Art, we will be looking at Brazilian graffiti artist Eduardo Kobra. The idea behind his work is that we are all one and that everyone is united.
What Year 5 is like...
In Year 5 we like to learn a range of subjects such as Art, Physical Education, English, Maths, Science, Topic, PSHE and Computing. We enjoy our learning more when the subjects are linked together. For example in Term 1 we learnt about Kensuke's Kingdom , which is written by Michael Morpurgo. We then linked this to Art and Science.
We get the most from our learning when we work as a team and support each other. Our teachers make our learning fun and memorable by planning exciting yet challenging lessons. The teachers make our days brighter by making us laugh and dressing up for 'Dress Up' days.
Written by Year 5.
The children have been enjoying linking their English learning with their Art this term. As part of our study of Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, we would like to give the children the opportunity to try shell painting just like Michael. If you are able to support us by contributing large scallop shells this would be very much appreciated.
