Welcome to Year 5
Our topics this autumn:
Rivers- Journey of a droplet from source to mouth
The first half term, we will focus much of our learning on finding out what a river is. With an exciting opportunity to do some fieldwork, we will be finding out how rivers can change along their course and their impact on the environment around them.
The second half term, will be focused on our enquiry; what did the Vikings want and how did Alfred help to stop them getting it? These fierce warriors sailed the oceans before invading and settling on the British Isles.
