In English in Year 5 we are looking at books by Shaun Tan including 'The Lost Thing' and 'The Viewer'. 

In Maths we will focus on percentages and geometry. The children can continue to practice their number fluency using mathletics! 

In RE we will be looking at Life in the Risen Jesus and the importance of prayer throughout our lives. 

In our Topic work we will be looking at the Amazon! In geography we will be looking at the following: 

  • understand geographical similarities and differences through the study of human and physical geography of a region of the United Kingdom, a region in a European country, and a region within North or South America (i.e. the Amazon)

  • describe and understand key aspects of:
    § physical geography, including: climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts, rivers, mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes, and the water cycle
    § human geography, including: types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water

In science:
