Macaws - Year 5 2018-2019
Spring Term 2019
Curriculum Learning - Spring 2
Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a restful break and are ready for the enriching term ahead.
Our geography topic for this term will focus on North America and New York.
However, we will start this half term by looking at the book “Malala's Magic Pencil” by Human Rights activist Malala Yousafzai in English.
As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.
The children will be planning and writing an autobiography about Malala Yousafzai’s life.
Furthermore, they will also hold a debate discussing opposing arguments around different viewpoints.
We will also write poetry around refugees and inspired by Malala’s life.
It is anticipated that the children will spend both half terms studying North America and New York 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!
