Autumn 2

Welcome to Year 5!


At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics are called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to either Science, History or Geography.


For this half term, we have a Science driver and our question to investigate is…



Within this Science driver, we will be setting up a Crime Scene in our school and asking lots of questions to find out what happened! We will use clues to help us with our investigations and looking into forensic evidence. We will also name items that are reversible and irreversible and explore evaporation.


In English, we will be using our investigations to help us write Mystery Stories and then become Journalists in order to develop our own Newspaper Reports. We will also be supported every week by our Drama Coach, Mr Terry, who will help us bring everything to life!...


Here is an outline of the other curriculum areas we will be covering this term.



There are also links to some useful websites for the children to use for their own research and enjoyment.
