Year 5


Summer is on the way and we are extremely excited about all the fun activities that awaits us this term.

The topic for this term is ‘Green Planet’.  Our main focus will be science- classification of plants and animals, pollination and seed dispersal, movement of Earth and other planets in the solar system, including the movement of moon relative to earth. We will also consider human impact on our planet and contemplate prevalent topics such as carbon footprint, pollution and climate change.

We look forward to seeing you all.
