Term 5 Asia, mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes

Dear Parents, 
 
We welcome your children back to their 5th term in Year 5 with, yet again, lots of exciting activities to start our topic off. Our topic is all about physical geography. We will be studying the continent of Asia and how mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes are formed and the changes that these physical features can have on a landscape. 
 
Our English will focus on the children writing reports as food critics, after visiting their very own Asian inspired restaurant at Brook Field. Be ready for an invitation really soon! We will be complementing our new topic by exploring folktales with an emphasis on The Magic Paintbrush, a traditional Chinese folktale of greed, generosity and retribution. We will also be studying the famous Willow pattern plate. Following this, we will be looking at performance poetry and creating our own raps. 
 
Within maths, we will cover fractions, decimals and percentages and the relationship between these as well as learning about angles and time. We will also be estimating, drawing and measuring angles and reading and interpreting timetables. We will also be learning about multiplication and division involving scaling. 
 
During PE, we will concentrating on athletics and tennis will form part of our games element of PE.  
 
Within PSHE, we will be looking at relationships and changes and how our bodies change as we grow older. 
 
Our art will cover pattern and printing, where the children will create their own beautifully inspired Asian prints. 
 
Trying to keep everything cross curricular, our ICT will focus on the children creating their own wiki pages to inform others about Volcanoes, Mountains and Earthquakes.  Finally, our DT will focus on food technology with the children designing, creating, tasting and evaluating their own Asian inspired dish.  
 
As always, we thank you for your continued support and if you would like to help out or have any resources or expertise that would benefit the children with their topic, please pop in.
