This term, class five’s topic is ‘Rivers and Coasts’. The children will be investigating the water cycle and learning about its role in Rivers and Coasts. They will be modelling this process themselves and making links to what happens in the world around us. They will be studying how the sea shapes the coastline and looking at examples of coastal landforms. Class five will also be studying coastal erosion and how it links to coastal landforms, as well as considering the impact we have as humans on the coast. The children will also be studying the journey of a river from source to mouth, looking at the different parts of rivers and their functions. They will be investigating key rivers in the world, as well as rivers in the local area. Class five will be doing observational drawings alongside this topic, which will tie into their Literacy this term. Towards the end of the topic, class five will be going on an educational visit to Dawlish Warren. There, they will be able to see what they have learnt about coasts in action, spot different coastal defences and landforms and experiment with using different materials to defend the coastline!
After half term, class five will be continuing with their learning about light from last term. They will investigate light and develop their knowledge of colour and shadow. They will then move on to learning about classification of a range of living things.
Class 5 consists of Year 5 and Year 6 children
