Year 5 (Class 11)

Welcome to Class 11

Term 3 and 4

Frozen Kingdom

This term our topic is Frozen Kingdom. We will be using the books Shackleton’s Journey by William Grill and Kaspar Prince of Cats by Michael Morpurgo to support our literacy and guided reading work. At the beginning of the term, we will write a newspaper report about Shackleton setting off on his Endurance expedition and it’s fateful sinking. Will the crew survive? We will also be writing non-chronological reports about polar animals such as penguins and polar bears. During our work on Kaspar Prince of Cats, will be find out about the Titanic and imagine what it was like to be a passenger on board the ‘Unisinkable’ boat. In art, we will be creating abstract iceberg art and depicting the magnificent Northern Lights.
