Term 6 - Is It Better To Adapt Or Stay The Same?

Welcome to the final term of Year 5! We have lots of exciting things planned for our last term together, which you can read about below...


For Term 6, our VIPERS reading sessions will be exploring the wonderful story of Amihan and her life on Culion Island in 'The Island at the End of Everything' by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. The children will be practising their comprehension skills on this story of segregation and hope - banished across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it's too late?

For our writing sessions, we will be developing our poetry writing skills to reimagine Valerie Bloom's poem 'The Most Dangerous Animal in the World'. Which animal do you think it is? You might be surprised!


In maths, year 5 will continue to develop their understanding and manipulation of decimals to three places, as well as building on their knowledge of negative numbers by counting through zero. They will also be converting a range of metric and imperial measurements, finishing on volume calculation.


Topic & Science     

This term will have a Geography focus - desert biomes! Join us as we explore these harsh and often desolate habitats as the children learn where they are located, who and what might live there, how they are formed and their physical features. Scorching!


In Science, children will be learning about living things and their habitats, with a particular focus on life cycles and animal reproduction. They will be exploring the life cycles of a variety of different animals, and looking at how plants reproduce.
