Welcome to Toucan Class!
Welcome to Year 5! Please keen an eye on this page as it will be updated often with photos and other key information as we progress through the term.
In the first few weeks of term we will be exploring Rudyard Kipling’s Just So stories, using this as inspiration for a piece of writing about how the toucan got their colourful beak. In addition, we will research about the habitat and life of the toucan and portray this through art inspired by Henri Rousseau.
The remainder of the half term will focus on our biology learning, a topic called ‘The Circulation Game’. Here we will develop our understanding of muscles, the skeleton and the circulatory system. Alongside this we will be reading an adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to coincide with all things ‘body’!
