Hi! Welcome to Year 5! I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break and are looking forward to being back at school and ready to learn!
This half term we will be learning about the circulatory system. We will understand the parts of the heart and the job that they do. We will investigate our own pulse rates in PE activities and the effect that exercise has on it. In English we will be reading 'Pig Heart Boy' by Marjorie Blackman and using this text to undertake diary and letter writing in context. We will be developing our descriptions of characters and settings from the book. In science we will be using sheep hearts to dissect and look more closely at the chambers, veins and arteries, which we will then sketch, developing our drawing and shading techniques.
