Autumn 1 - That's Life

Our first topic for Y5 will be ‘That’s Life’ where we’ll be focusing on Science along with elements of the Arts.  We will be learning all about fossils and how they are formed and we’ll discover who some of the key figures were in the fields of paleontology and the Theory of Evolution. After this, we’ll be exploring how characteristics are inherited as we consider how we’re similar (or not!) to our families. Finally, we’ll be thinking about how humans change as they develop and age and how we compare with other mammals. In addition, we’ll be finding out more about how our bodies work – focusing on the heart and our circulatory systems.
