Year 5 thematic learning - Spring term 2021
Our topic this term is ‘Spaceship Earth’. During this topic, we will be exploring the space and our planet, Earth.
In English, we will be using a range of books and film clips related to our curriculum to explore space. We are going to begin by writing our aims for the term as a STAR WARS intro crawl, then writing a balanced argument on the topic of sending animals to space. We will recount the moon landings as a newspaper, before drafting a narrative about being ‘Lost in Space…’
Later in the term, we will return to STAR WARS to inspire writing suspense stories, followed by writing explanation texts on the water cycle.
In Maths, we are beginning the term by focusing on problem-solving using all four operations, before moving on to converting units of measure.
In Science this term, our two topics are space and states of matter. We will be looking at the spherical bodies of our solar system, including their movements and the effects these have on our planet. When exploring states of matter, we will be investigation the properties of materials, grouping them appropriately and looking at how their states can be altered. Excitingly, this includes building and launching spacecraft!
