Our theme for the autumn term in year 5 is "Rich and Poor". We will be learning how society has changed since the Bronze age up to the present age with a focus on the Victorians. We will be visiting Fareham town centre and Westbury Manor Museum to help us with our learning and will also be dressing up as Victorians later in the term! On this day (28th November), parents are invited in to see your child's work and hear what we have been learning in music.
Our 1st class novel this term is "Street Child" by Berlie Doherty which is a great tale of a Victorian boy trying to escape poverty. Later in the term we will be reading "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.
In science we will be learning how we change from babies to old age and about life cycles of humans, animals and plants.
