Autumn 1 - Window on the World


We hope you have had a super summer holiday and are looking forward to the start of the new academic year as much as we are! In Year 5, we will be beginning the year with our new topic entitled ‘Window on the World’ where we will focus on North and South America as well as parts of Africa.


Our main focuses will be Geography, History and the Arts. We will be developing our mapping skills and learning about the key aspects of physical and human geography in Brazil as well as Tanzania. We’ll then investigate the similarities and differences between cities in the UK, Brazil and Tanzania. In addition, we’ll be learning about the slave trade – where it took place and the resulting consequences.

***In Art this half term, we are looking at African Adrinkra Art which uses textiles and printing. Next week, we will be tie-dying cloth to make banners for the classroom. If the children would like to, they can bring in a pre-washed 100% cotton t-shirt, pillowcase or a craft cotton tote bag to dye as well. Please bring them in by Monday 21st September. ***
