Our IPC topic this term is Go with the Flow which means we will be looking at rivers. We will learn how rivers are formed, terminology for parts of a river and their vital part they play in our livers.
This half term we have been looking at legends. We have enjoyed looking at a variety of legends from all over the world. Stories we’ve read include: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Arthur- High King of Britain and the Dragon of Krakow. We are almost ready to write our own Legend.
Our following topic is Poetry; we’re all excited to explore our ideas and showing off the creativity in Year 5.
During our Maths lessons this term, we are all exploring the relationship between decimals, fractions and percentages. Particularly when looking at Fractions, our topic has emphasised the need for us to learn our times tables!
This term we are exploring Liverpool in our new topic Here and Now, There and Then. We will be completing a Local History Study on how Liverpool has changed through tourism.
So far we have visited the Liverpool Museum, finding lots of interesting facts. We were also lucky enough to have had a fantastic tour of the city by great guy called Ian, with some seriously bad jokes.
We’re all really excited to find out more about the history of our home city!
For more information on Liverpool history, look at these websites.
Now our Living Things topic has finished we are getting ready to start our new topic on Materials. This week we created a mind map exploring what we already know and what we would like to find out. We’re all excited to find out if some of our predictions are true, especially the one about gases!
