Year 5

Welcome to Sycamore Class!

A very warm welcome to our class page! We can’t wait to share with you all of the engaging learning that we are going to be covering this year.

We have no doubt that you will all make tremendous progress and you will amaze us with lots of hard work, positivity, enthusiasm and most importantly by living the ‘Flying High’ values you carry with you and that make our school a very special place to be in.

Fly high. Soar on wings like eagles. To an incredible academic year 2021/2022!

Summer Term Learning

Our whole school global theme this summer term is Sustainable Environmental Development and in Year 5, the children will more specifically try to answer the following Big Question ‘Should development cost the Earth?’ We will look at the Earth as whole, learning how to use lines of latitude and longitude to identify places around the globe. We are going to focus on North and South America, deepening our knowledge of the countries in these continents through our home learning. Using our enquiry skills, we will research the history of Hernán Cortés and the Aztec Empire. Our maxi product outcome at the end of Term 6 will be a speech to persuade others to help or change their behaviour in order to avoid development costing the Earth.
