Welcome to Class 5 Homepage
This half term our topic is ‘Frozen Kingdom’. We will be investigating the two Polar Regions and identifying the similarities and differences between the Earth’s most extreme continent, Antarctica, and the Arctic region. We will study the animals that make their homes in the harsh polar climate and find out how they are adapted to thrive in the extremely cold conditions. In addition we will explore the history of polar exploration and why people visit the Polar Regions today.
In English we will be writing poetry inspired by the polar landscape as well as writing reports about some of the species that make the Polar Regions their home. Finally we will learn about journalistic writing and write reports based on the events of polar expeditions in the past.
In maths we will develop our understanding of negative numbers when considering the extreme temperatures of the areas studied. In addition, we will apply all our skills when carrying out scientific investigations.
