Autumn Term

In year 5 we began the school year learning all about British Values and what it means to be British. We had a great time exploring this topic and participated in a fantastic role play afternoon, where we all became members of a Crown Court. This was a great way to learn about the rule of law and the consequences if you don’t abide by them.

During this week, we learned about how Britain is a democratic country and why we have the right to vote. As a class we produced manifestos as to why we should support different charities. After hearing all the declarations we voted for the charity we would like to support throughout the year. The winner of the vote was WWF (World Wildlife Fund). We look forward to raising money for this charity.

We have now begun our new topic on Earth and Space and have researched and found lots of amazing facts about the movement of the Earth, moon and sun. We have also been learning about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing. We can’t wait to learn incredible facts and explore this topic further.
