Panther Class Year 5 and 6

Who do you think you are?


"Who do you think you are?" is the title of Panther class' Term 5 topic and has a philosophical discussion thread running through it.  Our class text is Ferdinand (written by Munro Leaf in 1936).  Through this we will be exploring the themes of animal rights and conformity.  The children will be learning some conversational Spanish and will also be studying the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.  Our value this term is courage; Frida had a tough life so she is the perfect figure for us to learn about.  The children will be exploring  art from Central and South America, in particular Diego Rivera (Frida's husband) and the paintings of Frida herself.   In maths we will be covering the following topics: identifying and measuring angles, geometry, translation, reflection, symmetry and co-ordinates and converting units of measurement including time.
