Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!
We are entomologists! Our topic for this half term is ‘Beast Creator’ which means that our key focus is exploring minibeasts: their habitats, features and food chains. Our English work is largely influenced by David Attenborough’s ‘Planet Earth’ through which we will be writing and performing informative reports. In maths, we will be continuing to learn about fractions, moving on to fractions, decimals and percentages. Our science work will involve learning about the lifecycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and we will get some real-life experience when ‘Animal Story’ come and visit with their amazing range of different animals!
We all enjoyed reading ‘Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone’ by J.K.Rowling- it was interesting to discuss the differences between the book and the film! This half term, our class book is called ‘Rooftoppers’ by Katherine Rundell.
