Macaws - Year 5 2019 - 2020

Miss Michiels



Autumn Term 2019

Curriculum Learning - Autumn 2


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

Our geography topic for this half term will focus on the local industry and the children will find an answer to the question ‘How did Northwich evolve and flourish after the decline of the salt industry?’

However, we will start this half term by reading the book "The Hunter" by Paul Geraghty.

“One day while playing hunters in the hot dry African bush, Jamina hears a sound. A sad and desperate cry that tugged at her heart. She held her breath and listened. Jamina can’t stop herself from following the mournful sound deeper and deeper into the bush – and there she finds a baby elephant whimpering besides its dead mother. As Jamina bravely helps the little orphaned elephant, she vows that she will never be a real hunter!”

The children will plan and write a journey narrative about an orphaned animal and a non-chronological report on elephants.
We'll also write elephant poems inspired by this book.


As part of this whole school writing project around conservation, we will visit Chester Zoo on Monday 18th November 2019.

 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
