Christmas has arrived in Year 5 this week and children have been learning all about Christmas in Australia!

We have learnt about continents, where Australia is located on the world map and focused on the Australian climate and animals. We researched and produced our own leaflets on different Australian animals. Children have even created their own Father Christmas outfit suitable for a hot Christmas in Australia!

We have also been getting into the festive spirit by baking Gingerbread biscuits and learning some new sewing skills for our felt Christmas tree decoration in Design Technology. In Art, we created our own 3D tissue paper Christmas cards.

All children will end the week with the annual Christmas singalong assembly where we will perform our song  ‘Silent Night’ and then in the afternoon we have a Christmas film reward for earning our 200 AR Reading stars!

Finally, the Year 5 team would like to wish all the children and their families a safe, happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. We look forward to welcoming the children back in 2020!
