On this page, you will find some very useful information about the learning that you are expected to complete along with some helpful resources. We really hope that these are clear and easy enough for you to use but if you do have any questions at all about anything, please do not hesitate to send an email to: year5@moricetownprimary.co.uk
 
Throughout our school day, we realise that there are many challenges and obstacles that the children have to overcome. With that in mind, a great way that we conquer these are by encouraging children to ROARR. This means means being ResilientOpenAspirationalReflective and Resourceful in their learning both inside and outside of school. This will make them successful in what they try to achieve so give it a go at home and please tell us if your child has ROARRed by emailing year5@moricetownprimary.co.uk so I can celebrate this with them!
Topic - Plymouth Explorers
 
During terms 1 and 2, the children will be learning all about 'Plymouth Explorers'.
 
Throughout this exciting topic, the children will find out about the expeditions that Sir Francis Drake, Sir Ernest Shackleton and more recently Antony Jinman went on to the Arctic region. Furthermore, each explorer will be delved into a little deeper where we will look at things such as Drake's battle against the Spanish Armada and how Shackleton survived being stranded on Antarctica's Elephant Island!
 
It's going to be a chilly one!
