This half term (Spring 2) our topic is 'Road Trip USA'
 
Buckle up, sunglasses on - we're going on a road trip across the good old US of A!
 
It's time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question: Do you wish you were here?
 
Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions.
 
It's going to be a long ride; put down the roof and let the wind blow through you hair - we're off!
Year 5 are taking part in a 3 week programme with Adam, a Plymouth Argyle coach, on Tuesday afternoons.

This half term (Spring 1) our topic is 'Water and Rivers'.
 
From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and into the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in. How deep does it go? How fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Let’s meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip into their watery world!
 
We'll be studying the water cycle, investigating why rivers are important and what they are used for, river pollution and its effects, as well as choosing a river around the world to investigate in depth.
