Year 5

This Autumn 5M’s topic will be Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.  We will learn about the daily lives of these groups and how they have influenced our lives today.  As part of this topic we will be having some Viking visitors from the Jorvik museum in York.  Our Science topics will be Life Cycles and Space for the Autumn term.  Our song this term will be Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Jovi and we will perform this song in front of the whole school.  For PE we will be swimming every Monday morning and during the week we will play Tag Rugby for our second PE session.

Our Curriculum 


It is extremely important that children read regularly in school and at home.  Please read with your child and ask them questions about their book.  There are questions in children’s planners to help you see the types of questions you should ask.  Our class novels that we will use in class this term are Viking Boy, Anglo-Saxon Boy and The Dragons Hoard.  

Extra Bits


Each week children will get spellings and a piece of maths homework.  Children will receive a topic based homework which should take a half term to complete.  This homework is ongoing.  The maths and spellings will be given on a Friday and needs to be returned on Wednesday, where children will be tested on their spellings.
