This scheme of work for Year 5 has been devised especially for Plazoom by teacher/author/trainer Debra Kidd, and is based on a fictional expedition to film Californian wildlife. It includes planning and resources to cover up to a half-term of learning.

This resource pack includes:

  • Teaching notes
  • Briefing sheet
  • Application form
  • Where are we going? images
  • How will we get there? Images
  • Mountain map
  • PowerPoint teaching slides

Cross-curricular subjects covered:

  • Geography (volcanoes, mountains, earthquakes, land use, map skills, location knowledge)
  • Science (states of matter, rocks, plants, forces, data logging)
  • English (writing to persuade and inform; reading for information and inference; speaking and listening; vocabulary development)

This is one of a set of six packs, covering Reception to Year 6 (with the final pack having strong potential for transition activities), each with a different focus, and all offering plenty of opportunities to weave literacy learning across the curriculum in a story-sharing context.

  • Teacher notes
  • Briefing sheet
  • Application form
  • Where are we going? images
  • How will we get there? images
  • Mountain map
  • PowerPoint teaching slides
