Year 5 Yearly Planner
Below is our yearly planner for you to see the topics we will be covering over the course of the year.
We've been writing haikus and tankas based upon the artwork of Hokusai this week. Our poems are sounding incredible and we've also been practising our watercolour techniques, ready to produce our own interpretations of Hokusai's work next week. We will then write our poems onto our lovely artwork.
Our Flood-Proof Homes
We've been focussing on Japan as our topic this half term. Having studied the book 'I survived the Japanese Tsunami' in English, we decided to put our design and technology skills to the test and design flood-proof homes. We looked at examples of homes that have been designed to withstand tsunamis or earthquakes, before designing and building our own in groups.
