Summer term

In year 5 we have a very busy term! The year 5s will be starting a new topic - Canada! We will be exploring the history and physical geography of this massive country (the second largest in the world!). We will also be studying various aspects of Canadian culture including music, sports, food, religions, and the different groups of people who make up Canada's population.

In PE we will continue to be practicing our athletics in the summer term. In addition to athletics we will also be going swimming at Stanground Academy every Friday. Don't forget to bring your swimming costume! In science we will be continuing to take a deeper look at Earth and Space, including our galaxy, the sun and planets in our solar system. In PSHE we will be learning about diversity and community for the first half term. In the second half term we will be studying sex education and healthy relationships.
