Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!
We are horticulturists! Our topic for this half term is ‘Allotments’ which means that we will spend a lot of time exploring the outdoors! We will be giving our school garden a much needed makeover; weeding the planters, planting flowers and hopefully even managing to grow some vegetables!
In Science, we will be learning about what plants need to grow by carrying out a range of experiments and also exploring the different parts of a flower. We will be studying the artist Van Gogh and having a go at recreating his famous painting ‘Sunflowers’ using oil pastels. English: Setting and character descriptions based on the short film ‘Little Freak’.
Maths: Geometry We all loved the twist at the end of our last class book ‘Rooftoppers’! This half term we are reading ‘Bad Dad’ by David Walliams.
