Year 5

This half term we will be learning about the changes in humans as we develop into old age.  We will be drawing timelines to indicate the stages in growth and development.  We will also be working scientifically by researching the gestation periods of other animals and comparing them with humans; by finding out and recording the length and mass of a baby as it grows.  We will continue  with our topic Macbeth in English lessons to develop our writing, grammar and drama skills. In Maths our focus will be measurement, where we will convert between different units of metric measure and calculate the volume of shapes.
