Our Summer Term topic is 'One World'

The books we are studying are: 'The Paperbag Prince' by Colin Thompson and 'The Last Wild' by Piers Torday,


The Paperbag Prince (Red Fox picture books): Thompson, Colin:  9780099933205: Books      


Many of our lessons will be themed around our topic. In Geography, we are studying 'Africa - A Continent of Contrast'; in art we will be using tradiitonal African techniques; in Science we will study forces and animals including humans.


This term, Year 5 have PE on Tuesday and we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.

Our other PE lesson this term is swimming (every Friday) and on this day full school uniform is to be worn, not PE kit.

Weather dependant, they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and House PE sweatshirt. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.

Long Term Plan
