REQM Silver Award

Up until half term, the topic in year 5 will be Extreme Earth. This topic will be mostly Geography based as we discover how Earthquakes occur and what happens inside a volcano, including the internal parts. It will also include aspects of History as we study the 1906 Earthquake in San Francisco.

In our science lessons, we will be looking at life cycles, in both plants and animals. During this topic, we will be looking into the sexual and asexual reproduction of plants; this will include dissected a flower to find its female and male parts as well as cloning a plant from a cutting. We will also look into the different lifecycles of mammals, birds, insects and amphibians, how these differ from one another and how some animals are difficult to classify due to their lifecycle.

In our art lessons, we will be studying The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. Including how the art was created and how we can recreate it.
