Our Learning
Topic / Writing
All our learning happens through our topic and this term our topic is all about being a CSI investigator. We will learn all about materials and their properties, as well as learning about some influential scientists. Children will do lots of interesting writing in the form of a instructions and recounts.
We will use this whole short term to focus on decimals. We will also re-visit a fractions and percentages to look at equivalents. 
Easter- In this unit the children will use the story of Lazarus to explore resurrection and eternal life. They will learn about the Easter Vigil and
the symbols that are associated with this ceremony. The overarching theme in this unit is not ‘death’, but actually ‘hope’.
Pentecost - Pupils should explore the concept of the Holy Spirit and its 4 elements:
2. Oneness (Unity)
3. Change (prompt)
4. Closeness
In particular in year 5 focusing on how the Holy Spirit creates one Universal Church community through its uniting nature and how the energy of the Holy Spirit is demonstrated in the whole of the bible and in the titles given to it throughout.
The children will also look at the trinity and the role of the Holy Spirit within it.
