Year 5

Welcome to Year 5
Get ready for next half term. We have some exciting new books to read .There is another book by the fabulous author/illustrator Shaun Tan, who wrote The Arrival, Tell Me, Tell Me, Sarah Jane by Charles Causley
and The Water Tower by Gary Crew.
We will be writing narrative stories and looking at narrative poetry. There will be a new topic about the Americas and in French we will be learning how to talk about food. There is another exciting science topic about forces,which involves lots of experiments and investigations. As as we approach Christmas we will helping Santa by creating packaging for some very unusual gifts.
