Year 5 (UKS2)
Welcome to the Year 5 Website Page
Hola! This half term Year 5 will be Geographers as they explore the land and culture of Spain in our topic ‘Viva Espana!’
We will begin our learning with a ‘Viva Espana’ afternoon where children will experience Spanish food, music and culture.
We will look at geography at a more human perspective, studying the country of Spain. Having previously looked at the continent of Europe, Year 5 will now do a more detailed study of a European country before moving on to another Spanish speaking country in another continent in Year 6. This unit involves looking at features such as the culture, economy, cuisine and climate of the country, comparing this to other countries we have previously studied.
To remain in our sunny Spanish topic, in English lessons we will create persuasive travel brochures all about Spain. Pupils will research and discover why people holiday in Spain and then persuade our readers to visit this wonderful country through a wide range of persuasive techniques.
We are excited to sample a range of Spanish foods and then create our own Tortilla de patatas in design and technology. We will refine our food hygiene knowledge as well as develop a range of cutting and chopping skills. We can’t wait to taste our delicious creations!
