Welcome to Year 5 where all the excitement happens. You will go back in time to explore Ancient Egypt and discover what it was like to live through the Black Death pandemic. Not only that, you will journey out into the far reaches of space and explore different forces here on Earth through our Scream Machine unit.  You will come face to face with super aphid eaters in our Beast Creator topic and experience the highs and lows of farming and land use in our Sow, Grow and Farm topic. We hope you are as excited as we are.

This half term our topic is Beast Creator.

A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He’ll tickle your skin and then go in for the sting!

Arachnids, invertebrates, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks… Come and search for these minibeasts, and let’s sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it?

Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery – then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go!

Discover where in the world you’ll find the deadliest beasts – scorpions, ants and venomous spiders… Perhaps the Vespa mandarinia japonica is the one that your fear?

Why not become a ‘Beast Creator’? Selectively breed a killer predator that saves the world from the super-strong aphid. You’ll be a hero!



Please see below for home learning ideas. We would like you to choose one activity from the sheet and bring the work into school by the end of term.
