Welcome to 5S!
We are taught by Miss Swain and supported in class by Miss Guest.
Come and look at all the wonderful things we have been learning about this year!
We have started this term remotely, so have a look at a mix of our in class and online learning for this term!
Our PSHE topic this term is Healthy Me. We'll be learning about the health risks of smoking, the risks of misusing alcohol, putting into practice basic first aid procedures, reflecting on our own body image, looking at our relationship with food and reflecting on how to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Our Science topic this term is Living things and their habitats. During this topic we will be learning about the life cycles of different animals and the life process of reproduction in some plants. We will also be catching up on learning missed from Year 4: using classification keys to classify living things and learning that environment changes can pose a risk to living things.
In Geography this term, our topic is What is it like to live in Guatemala? During this topic we will be comparing Guatemala to the Peak District in the UK. We will be learning about where these places are on a map, comparing the topography, vegetation and rivers of the two areas, creating artwork in the style of Henri Rousseau, learning about biomes and the climate.
In Reading this term, we have started to learn about deforestation. We created word clouds to show
what our initial thoughts about deforestation were after seeing a selection of powerful images.
