Autumn 2  Year 5 – Lights! Camera! Action!

Autumn 1  Year 5 – Space Invaders

Our topic last half term was 'Space Invaders' where we looked forward to the challenge of sending sending our eggonauts into Space! Alongside this, we learnt about the history of space, including finding out about the first people (and creatures) sent in to Space! We learnt about our Solar System and identified how the planets orbit the sun, as well as investigating how night and day are created. 


Autumn 2  Year 5 – Lights! Camera! Action!

This half term our topic is LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! 

During this topic we will be using Stop Motion to create our very own animations. Whilst creating our animations, we will be looking at camera angles, sound, sound effects and lighting.

In English we will be focusing on Film narrative, Modern fiction and Modern classic, along with digital literacy. We will be exploring the history of film and television and learning about the famous film composer, John Williams. Science this half term will revolve around properties and changes of materials, so be prepared for lots of scientific experiments!

Get ready to get your groove on in PE during our dance and gym lessons; Learn about Buddhism in RE; Brush up on your French speaking skills; Become an E-Safety Guru in Computing and create digital images and sculptures during our art sessions.

We have a busy term ahead with lots of fun and exciting activities. We can’t wait to start!
