This term in Year 5....

We have a very exciting project planned for the first term! It is called 'The Bells of Santiago', and is all about the true story of how four bells travelled from a church in Chile, all the way to Swansea after a terrible fire in 1863. We will be working with a professional musician and artist, as well as taking part in drama workshops. At the end of the project, we will be presenting our work in Swansea Waterfront Museum, and you are all invited! We will also be learning about how Hafod Copperworks links to the story, investigating the historical and geographical importance of the Copperworks to the local area, and using this information to produce extended writing.
In Maths, we will be focusing on understanding of place value in larger numbers and in decimals.
We will be enjoying learning about healthy eating and using local produce as part of the 'Pizza Project' which was started in Year 4. In addition, year five will be promoting 'five a day' by taking part in a fruit survay, and analysing the dada using a database.

After half term, our topic is World War II. We will be exploring how this event effected daily life, focussing on evacuees and rationing. We also hope to visit Swansea WWII Museum!
In science, we will be investigating electricity and exploring how to make simple circuits with a switch.
Numeracy tasks will link to our topic, e.g. creating a graph to show the number of deaths caused by the war.

Some key moments from last year!!!
