We are now half way through our time in Year 5 and we've been working very hard and learning huge amounts already.
This term, we are off to North America (well not literally, just in our lessons!)
We will be following the story of Pocahontas and enjoying learning about balanced discussion texts by debating whether Britain did the right thing by settling in North America and developing a British colony.
Following this theme through our Linked Learning, we will also be looking at aspects of discrimination, using the book 'The Listeners' as our starting point. Of course, we'll also be finding out about the climates, environments, people and economy of the modern North America.
P.E. will continue to be on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure that your kits are in school and shoes are regularly checked to make sure they fit!
