Year 5 Curriculum Overview
Our topic this term is 'Grasmere'. During this term the children have the opportunity to explore Grasmere up close and personal as we participate in our first residential to really get to grips with the geography curriculum by taking part in geographical field study work comparing and contrasting the human and physical geography with that of Kearsley. The children will dive deeper into key concepts, using and applying their new found vocabulary. The topic has lots of opportunity for research and to ask questions to deepen their knowledge and understanding. Within this busy term we will also be familiarising ourselves with the roads in our immediate locality as we attempt to complete the bikeability life skill course of cycling building on last years cycling focus.
Year 5 Residential
Our class novel to promote reading is ' Danny the Champion of the World' by Roald Dahl. It is about a ten year old boy named Danny who has always admired his father and since he was seven, has helped him in the small garage they own. One night, Danny wakes up and his father isn't there, and he suddenly discovers a dark secret that has been kept away from him for many years. But Danny is determined to help his father, even with the horrible and rich Mr Victor Hazell watching them with a close eye. This is a fascinating story about the strong relationship between a boy and his dad written by one of my favourite,classic author.
