Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page!
I hope you are all feeling
refreshed and ready to start a new half term together!
We have a very exciting new half term ahead of us, with so much fun, engaging and action-packed lessons which I am really looking forward to teaching you all! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Our Year 5 team looks forward to a new and busy half term with you all!
This term we are Historians!
After delving into the exciting world of the Anglo-Saxons and Scots last half term, we are now embarking on a new crusade as we learn all about The Vikings! We all just know how exciting a topic this will be and can't wait for it to start!
We will be investigating a key period in history which is connected to our ‘Big Question’ – ‘How much did Britain change from 793 AD to 1066?‘. As always, we will be using our Knowledge Organisers and Discovery Box creations to guide us through this exciting period of History!
Our new book book is also linked to our Topic and is called 'Beowulf' By Michael Morpurgo. In fifth-century Denmark, a murderous monster stalks the night, and only the great prince of the Geats has the strength and courage to defeat him. Beowulf's terrifying quest to destroy Grendel, the foul fiend, a hideous sea-hag and a monstrous fire-dragon is the oldest surviving epic in British literature.
Please check on Class Dojo, Facebook, Twitter and of course, to see all the wonderful activities we have been up to.
We can't wait for the new half term to start!
