Educating the Whole Child

Year 5

Autumn Term 1


We have had a great half term in Year 5! The obvious highlight has been our Zoolab visit, where the children met various animals, including a snake, tarantula and tree frog! This supported our science work on animals and their life cycles. In English, we have been looking at The Good Guys, a book about fifty inspirational men who have changed the world with kindness. We have all really enjoyed learning about the range of people in the book, and we have even written autobiographical pieces ourselves. Our guided reading text has been Pig Heart Boy, a book about a boy who needs a heart transplant, but ends up receiving a pig’s heart! We have all settled back into school brilliantly and are looking forward to another amazing half term!
