Welcome to Class 5's webpage

Autumn Term 2021

Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed a great summer break and are ready for our new year of learning. From this term, we are going to be changing our curriculum so, rather than having a topic, we are going to have a big question.  We will then explore the question, break it down, become experts in our field and by the end of our unit of learning, we will all be able to answer our big question. 

 

 

This term our big question is:

 

WHY DO WE NEED TO SAVE THE RAINFORESTS?

 

We cannot simply answer this by googling the answer as it is a very complicated issue.  In order to give you a head start, I have given you some useful website links below so you can begin to explore where in the world rainforests are, what or who lives there, what they provide for us and also why they are threatened. There is also a termly subject overview detailing some of the curriculum highlights.
