Welcome to Year 5 - Mr McClelland


World Around Us


Our first term World Around Us topic is Australia.  The children have been learning and researching some interesting facts about famous landmarks and tourist attractions in Australia.  They presented their findings in class.  See pictures below.


Australia 1 The Rocks, Sydney
Australia 2 Sydney Opera House
Australia 3 The Great Barrier Reef
Australia 4 The Great Barrier Reef


In Literacy we investigated the differences between Fiction and Non Fiction texts.  They used their Guided Reading Books and compared them with an Atlas.  Children were able to share the many differences and similarities between the two types of text.

In art this term we have linked with our World Around Us topic of Australia.  We looked at some pieces of art by the artist Emma Gale and drew inspiration from her work to create our own pieces of art in her style.  We choose Australian birds as the focus on this occasion.  We have also been researching famous landmarks and tourist attractions in and around Sydney and pupils painted their own pictures of these famous attractions.
