Our topic this term is a novel study 'Boy Overboard' by Morris Glietzman. In class we will be reading and studying the book which is centered around Jamal and his family and their experiences as they become refugees in the country of Afghanistan. In literacy we will be focusing on diary writing and taking on the role of a main character from the book. In addition, the children will be given the opportunity to participate in hot seating activities and learn how to write an informal letter. Linked to this topic, the pupils will be studying Islam in RE and Children's Rights in PSE. They will also engage in an Islamic Art topic where they will produce an Islamic Tile and D&T topic where they design and make bread (in the book the main character's father is a baker!)
After October Half Term, we will begin our Saint Lucia Topic and Healthy Bodies Science topic. As part of their Science work, the children will learn about a balanced diet and will have the opportunity to visit Tesco to take part in a healthy living trail.
In Year 5, we encourage pupils to attempt to read at home at least 4 times a week. This is checked every Friday and dojos, raffle tickets and/or merit points are issued as a reward.
