Year 5 Curriculum Overview
This term our topic is called 'Out Of This World' which is a science based topic based on the unit Earth and Space. We will be finding out about our solar system as well as investigating the craters on the moon and why shadows change in length during the course of the day. After the half-term holiday we will continue with the scientific theme by learning about forces in a topic called 'May The Forces Be With You'.
Year 5 Residential
Our class novel to promote reading is called the Accidental Time Traveller by Janis MacKay. This book was the Smarties winner in 2013 (Scotland). This is the blurb: Saul is on his way to the corner shop on a seemingly ordinary day, when a girl appears suddenly in the middle of the road. She does not understand traffic or the things she sees in shops, and she’s wearing a long dress with ruffled sleeves. Her name is Agatha Black.
Agatha Black is from 1813, and Saul needs to find a way to get her back to her time. With help from his buddies Will and Robbie, he tries to figure out how to make time travel happen.
This face-paced, time-traveling adventure from Janis Mackay (author of the Magnus Fin books) is full of funny misunderstandings and gripping action. Doesn't it sound exciting?!
