Topic Web

Welcome back Year 5 I hope that you enjoyed the improved weather and that everyone is rested and eager to start the Summer Term. 

This term our Topic is all about Ancient Dynasties, particularly focussing on the amazing Maya. We will be exploring the people, foods, traditions and art.

Our theme for R.E this term looks at Pentecost and we will be focusing on the appearance of Jesus after the resurrection. The feast of Pentecost of a celebration of the gift of God’s Spirit and its transforming power. Christians believe that the Spirit of God is active in each person and we will be looking at the different ways we can hear God’s message and use our energy for the wellbeing of others.

Last Term’s Success:   

Titanic Writers!
As part of our English and topic, Year 5 learnt a great deal about the Titanic and looked closely at the amazing initial launch from Harland and Wolff. The children have applied research and information to help them write broadsheet, formal tone newspaper report. It was clear to see just how engaged the children were and the exceptional progress that had been made in tone, layout, precision of language and use punctuation! 

Article 10: If you live in a different country than your parents do, you have the right to be together in the same place.

Keep your eyes open as we complete various activities we will post photographs on our class page to celebrate our achievements.
