Year 5 IPC Project, Summer: What a Wonderful World

  • What’s the big idea?

    Our world is truly incredible. In this project, we will explore the natural wonders of our world. We will become expert geographers while we map, gather and record data and compare different regions. We will also get very excited about our future travels – the world really is our oyster!

  • What will we be learning?


    We will be able to:

    • describe different climates around the world, and their impact on flora and fauna
    • describe global warming, and its causes and effects
    • explain global supply chains and where some of the highest value exports are in the world
    • record rainfall and temperatures from around the world on graphs, and interpret similar graphs
    • discuss the impacts of a variety of natural disasters on humans, flora and fauna


    We will know:

    • more about databases

    Design Technology

    We will be able to:

    • evaluate, design and create a bird hide


    We will know:

    • more about Aboriginal art

    We will be able to:

    • create our own versions
  • Knowledge organiser

    We use a knowledge organiser for every project in every year group. It is a helpful way for children and families to see the key knowledge that children will learn. This key knowledge helps the children ask more questions and then find out more information.

    It would be helpful to talk with your child about this knowledge organiser. As the project develops, they will be able to share more knowledge. Thank you!

  • Maths

    Some areas we will be learning include:

    • converting between fractions, decimals and percentages
    • round decimals to 3 decimal places
    • multiply fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers

    If your child is not yet secure in their times tables, it is essential that they continue to learn these.

    Maths from now on needs times tables knowledge even more than before.

  • English

    In addition to creative writing this term, we will be writing fact files about different areas of the world. We will try to use our knowledge rto persuade people to visit. We must ensure our handwriting is consistently neat. We will try to use different types of sentences to write non-fiction, while broadening our vocabulary.
