INFORMATION ABOUT THE CURRICULUM IN YEAR 5
e will be reading a range of texts about space. Our writing focus is persuasive writing and the children will be writing job adverts persuading others to enrol onto NASA's space program.
This half term, we will be learning about rainforests. We will be using atlases and maps to find rainforests and explain what the climate is like there. We will also be comparing the average rainfall in different climate zones and the sizes of different rainforests, and will look at how the vegetation and animal life changes in the different layers of the rainforest.
Our topic for STEM this half term is forces. We will be carrying out a variety of experiments in our lessons to determine the effect of different forces.
We will be learning to recognise and name different hobbies in French. We will also learn how to express our likes and dislikes using 'J'aime' and 'Je n'aime pas'.
