Macaws - Year 5 2018-2019
Spring Term 2019
Curriculum Learning - Spring 1
Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a restful Christmas holiday and are ready for the enriching term ahead.
Our geography topic for this term will focus on North and South America. However, we will start the term by looking at the book “The Man Who Walked Between the Towers” by Mordicai Gerstein in English. In 1974, French aerialist Philippe Petit threw a tightrope between the two towers of the World Trade Center and spent an hour walking, dancing, and performing high-wire tricks in the sky.
The children will be planning and writing a recount about this daring tightrope walk between skyscrapers.
Furthermore, they will write a newspaper report about Philippe Petit’s extremely dangerous walk between the Twin Towers. We will also write poetry inspired by Pie Corbett’s “City Jungle”.
It is anticipated that the children will spend both half terms studying North and South America in geography.
To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.
Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact me using the email address at the top of the page or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.
It's going to be an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School.
