Our first area of thematic learning in Year 5 is ‘Life Away from Britain’. In order to make a sparkling start to our learning, all the children spent the day dressed as Australians. There were plenty of t-shirts, shorts, cork hats and kangaroos- we even had a few surfboards! Despite a little rain at the start of the day, everyone had a great day learning about the physical landscape, the deadly creatures and traditional Australian food.
Throughout this term, we will continue to find out about the landscape and animals as well as finding out more about the country and people of Australia.
