Summer Term 2021
It’s good to be back up and running again. The children are already working hard to progress their academic skills. I am already impressed with Year 5’s effort and determination, especially with their creative writing.
This term we have the new topic of China to cover. The topic runs alongside our Power of reading book that we are studying during English lessons: Little Leap Forward. We will be learning a little about China’s history and a lot about Chinese culture. Hopefully, we will get to make some kites.
Our two Science topics this term will be: Space and Forces. Usually, Year 5 would take a trip to the Science Museum in Manchester, but I’m not sure the trip will be available this year. We will have to wait and see.
So let’s hope this term runs smoothly with no other interruptions,
P.S. The school garden is in need of some TLC: we are looking for unwanted shrubs and perennials to fill our borders. Any donations will be kindly accepted.
Here is a link to the Year 5 Curriculum Map outlining our topics and learning for the academic year.
