Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Our theme for the Summer Term is:







We will be looking at how Gloucester Docks has changed over time.  We will explore the changes to the land over time focusing on how the canal was and is still used, how settlements have developed, the ecology of canals and how tourism has had an impact on Gloucester Docks today.  We are planning a trip to the National Waterways Museum in Gloucester to explore the docks, this will allow us to familiarise ourselves with the area we are studying. We are always looking for any parents/grandparents who may have any expert knowledge of the topic. If so, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
