Welcome To The Y5/6 Homepage!

           Spring Term 2019                         

Welcome back!  We hope you've had a great Christmas and New Year and are ready to start 2019!


This term our topic is 'South America:Luscious Rainforest Or Disaster Zone?' where we'll be investigating the physical and human geography of the continent of South America.  As part of our topic we'll be reading 'Survivors: Extraordinary Tales From The Wild & Beyond ' by  David Long & Kerry Hyndman.  See below for a synopsis of the book.

'When it comes to extreme stories of survival, few can match the true tales of heroism found in this book.  Ranging from classics such as Shackleton's expedition to the Antarctic, to modern exploits, including the adventurer who inspired the movie 127 Hours, these courageous survivors all have one thing in common: an incredible ability to draw on all their strength, bravery and self belief in order to beat the odds, and live to tell their tales.'
