Welcome to Rowan Class! I hope that you all enjoyed your summer holidays and are ready to start Year 5 with lots of energy!
Our Topic for Autumn One is going to be Earth and Space, and so we will be learning about the solar system, our place in it, and how this affects our daily lives.
In science we will learn about how the planets move, their shapes, and what they are made of. We will also design a parachute suitable for a rocket travelling through space, which will allow us to control variables, make predictions, and record results.
In Geography we will learn about the Earth, and how the sun affects our days and nights, as well as time zones. This also links to the equator, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and the Arctic and Antarctic Circles.
In English we will look at the book Cosmic: It's One Giant Leap for All Boy-Kind by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We will look at the characters and events in detail and ultimately write a newspaper report about what happens.
We will be having our PE lessons on Mondays so please ensure that your full kit is in school ready for this.
Looking forward to meeting you all soon!
