Term 3: Renaissance Man

This term in Year 5, we will be delving into the incredible achievements of Leonardo da VInci, from his portrait painting and inventions to detailed botanical sketches and anatomical discoveries!  We will be reading 'THe Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm' by Norman HUnter and using this comedic writing to inspire our own narrative writing. We will also develop our Word Processing skills in Computing, creating biographies for da VInci.

Term 2: Beyond the wardrobe doors...

Throughout term 2 we will have a literacy focus, using the classic novel, 'The Lion, THe Witch and The Wardrobe' by C. S. Lewis to inspire our writing and reading skill development. In our topic lessons we will learn about volcanoes and mountains and this will carry though to our Art, where the children will develop their skills in sculpture using papier-mache to create their own fiery volcanoes!
