Autumn 1- Living Things and Their Habitats
During the first half term in Autumn Year 5 explored Living things and their habitats.
We explored how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics, as well as researching and writing a biography about Carl Linnaeus. Additionally, we linked our grammar studies to the natural world using the Natural Curriculum and along with using the natural world to inspire us, we classified all the animals that helped us with our grammar.

Autumn 2- Electricity
During the second half of Autumn term we learnt about Electricity.
We learnt to associate the brightness of a lamp with the number and voltage of batteries used in a circuit, as well as giving reasons for variations in how components of a circuit function. We used recognised scientific symbols when representing circuits as diagrams. To extend our research further we experiemented with circuits and explored what elements make electricity flow.
