Welcome to Year 5!


Hello, welcome to Year 5.

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


For this half term, we have a History and Science driver and our questions to investigate are…



In our first driver, we will be looking at where the world’s rainforests are, we will study their features, try to understand their ecosystems and look into why they are under threat.


In addition we will be learning about the impact of deforestation on our environment and the importance of rainforests for all of us.


In our second driver, we will focus on South America and study the different cultures and lifestyles of the people who live there. We will do a particular study on Brazil and identify which cities attract tourists, finding out what it is like to live there.



As part of this unit, we also aim to put together everything we've learnt about Living Things in a performance of 'The Lion King' at the end of the term. We hope you enjoy it!


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