Sycamore Year 5

Welcome to Year 5, we are Tiger Class and our teacher is Mr Capp. We are very lucky to have Mrs Benson working with us too!


Our topic this term is 'Where Could We Live?' We will be looking at how homes are adapted for different parts of the world, cultural differences and how they can be more sustainable amongst other things.


Our Questions for Learning are:


1. How are biomes being protected and preserved?

2. What is the best way to appreciate what we have got?

3. What makes a house a house?

4. How are homes made to be eco-friendly?

5. Where and what kind of home do I want to build?

Throughout our curriculum we explore the PSHE threads: risk, resilience, rights & responsibilities and change, as well as respect and diversity. 


For PSHE we follow Jigsaw - this term, our 'piece' is 'Relationships'.

Our class book this term is 'Floodland' written by Marcus Sedgwick.

In Science, we are looking at Properties and Changes of Materials. Where we will be: using microscopes to look for visual differences; using equipment to measure changes such as temperature and coming up with our own ideas to solve real-world problems.

We will be doing Cricket in PE this term on Thursdays - please make sure that you have your PE kit on!


Forest School will be on Tuesdays so please make sure you bring clothes to change into!
