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

Welcome to Year 5

Our fantastic topic this half term is..

Time Travellers

Tick, tock, tick tock… the hands on the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man. Find out what happens to our bodies and brains when we get older and how we cope with this. Take a good look at yourself.  How has your face changed since you were born and how will it change as you get older?  Can you photograph it, change it, age it? Tick, tock, tick tock… the hands on the clock never stop.

 

This half term, we are going to look at:

* Reflecting on SMSC issues, and setting personal targets.
* Photography and great artists such as Andy Warhol and Mackenzie Thorpe.
* The history of music.
* A local field study investigating the history of Middlesbrough.

Science will focus on body changes approaching puberty.
