'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to Year 5

Our fantastic topic this half term is..

Allotments

Let’s grow! A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens. Harvest your crops and make soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. Learn about farms and where foods come from, writing reports on world-wide produce. Discover which allotments are closest to your school, and open the door to a secret garden.

Then establish your own farmers’ market, harvesting your crops and selling local produce. Include garden crafts and work out your prices, be sure to make a profit and not a loss!

After all that hard work have your fingers gone green?

 

 

 

 

 

This half term, we are going to look at:

* Different minibeasts from around the world.
* Geographical Skills and Fieldwork; Map work; Climates.
* Cooking and nutrition- making healthy foods
