WELCOME TO THE WILD WILD WEST!
We we are very excited about our final topic of Year 5. We will be travelling to the Wild West to find out what life was like on the prairies. The children will be put into different Native American tribes to carry out research and write their own non-fiction report. We will be doing some traditional cultural artwork and designing and making our own tribal totem poles. We will be using an atlas to find out where the Wild West was in North America and looking at the human and physical features of the area.
The children are already excited about this topic and we have lots of fun lessons planned to get them even more enthusiastic about the Wild West topic.

We experienced 5 different areas of challenge:
