Year 5

Survival of the Fittest

In the summer term, we will be learning about Ancient Britain. During this topic we will investigate the development of Britain from a hunter gatherer lifestyle to more sophisticated tools and farming. We will be completing a book study on ‘Wolf Brother’ which is set in the pre-historic era.
In science, we will learn about the life cycles of different groups of animals and their habitats. We will observe changes overtime with our own caterpillars. We will watch them develop and eventually release them as beautiful butterflies.
This term we will have the opportunity to develop our musical understanding through instruments. We learn musical notation and scales through playing p-bones.
In DT we will have the opportunity to revisit our joining skills for making framed structures. We will build on these skills by turning our frames into toys with a cam mechanism.
