Beech - Year 5 2023 - 2024

Miss Plant


                                                                                      Welcome to Beech Class!

This half term, our topic will be Migration. We will be exploring this in our geography, D&T, shared reading and English lessons. We have different texts for shared reading and English this half term. Our shared reading text is called 'Wild is the Wind' by Grahame Baker-Smith. Our English vehicle text is called 'The Journey' by Francesca Sanna which has a link to human migration and refugees.  

Within our Geography lessons, we will be exploring animal and human migration. When looking at animal migration we will have the focus of a Cuckoo. In our human migration lessons, we will be exploring the reasons why people may migrate and looking at push and pull factors. 

In our D&T lessons we will be constructing our very own birdboxes. 

In Maths for this half term, we will have the focus of multiplication and division, fractions and decimals and percentages. 


Forest School

Forest school will be every other Wednesday and the dates are all on our school calendar. Children must come into school in their forest school clothing and bring their wellies/walking boots in a separate bag.


PE will be every Tuesday afternoon and we will have a focus of gymnastics for this half term. 

We will also try and get outside to complete the goldenmile as much as possible.
