Year 5 & 6: Topic information.

This term our topic in year 5 & 6 has been Darwins Delights, we have created sketch books & took a trip to Ponciau Park to look for different plants & animals to sketch. We have also presented news reports & created a new creature to report on from the Galápagos Islands which is where Charles Darwin travelled to discover new creatures. We thoroughly enjoyed this topic & have created some amazing sketch books.

Next week we are starting our new topic, which is called Scream Machine. We are going to visit Greenwood theme park to give us all an insight into how theme park rides work etc. This topic will be focusing on Science & technology. Throughout our classes the children will be designing their own theme park ride and explaining what it needs to make it work. I’m sure all children will really enjoy this topic!
