Charles Darwin

Throughout the second half of the Spring Term and the Summer Term, our topic will look at Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution. We will start by learning about Darwin's life and travels. In Geography, we will be identififying countries and understanding the significance of the lines of longtitude and latitude. As we study the Galapagos Islands in detail, we will be looking at how Darwin's discoveries on these incredible islands were crucial to the development of his theories. Our trip to Chester to take part in the Zoo's Evolution Workshop will give the children the oppurtunity to see uncover more on this fascinating topic. We will also be revisiting the Biblical creation account and looking at the words of some Christian scientists to help us investigate whether Creation and Evolution are at odds with one another or can go hand in hand. In Science, we will be investigating how rocks and fossils form, and what fossils can tell us about extinct creatures before moving onto consider how animals have adapted to survive in their environments and animal classification. To launch our new topic Ranger Rob will be visiting school, which will give the children the chance to handle some rather unsual creatures!

Leading up to Easter in RE, the children will be looking at the 'Kingdom of Heaven'. We will be considering the importance of heaven to Christians and the meaning of the phrase 'the Kingdom of God on Earth'. In the Summer Term, we will be thinking about the 'Five Pillar of Islam' and have a visiting speaker coming to address the Year 5 Children

In French, the children will be learning numbers from 30 to 60 , revisiting greetings and learning the vocabulary for clothes in order to give opinions and describe what someone is wearing.

In PE, the three classes will be taking in turns ot attend the squash club on Thursday afternoons. We will also be developing skills in cricket and athletics.
