Macaws - Year 5 2018-2019

Summer Term 2019

Curriculum Learning - Summer 2


Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a restful break and are ready for the last enriching term ahead.

Our history topic for this term will focus on Central America and the Maya civilization.

However, we will start this half term by looking at the book “Manfish” by Jennifer Berne
. This story will take us on an adventure with Jacques Cousteau. 

"Once upon a time in France, a baby was born under the summer sun. His parents named him Jacques. As he grew, Jacques fell in love with the sea. He dreamed of breathing beneath the waves and swimming as gracefully as a fish. In fact, he longed to become a manfish."

The children will plan and write a diary entry about Jacques Cousteau's travels below the surface and a biography about how Jacques Cousteau grew up to become a champion of the seas and one of the best-known oceanographers in the world. We'll also write poetry inspired by this book and the creatures Jacques meets on the way.

It is anticipated that the children will spend both half terms studying Central America and the Maya civilization in history.

 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!

Kind Regards,

Miss Michiels
