Year 5 2017/18

Autumn 2 Term

This half term we are taking a creative look back in time at the period of the Anglo Saxons, with our learning journey, 'The ART of battle.'

Children will be designing and producing their own Saxon helmet and looking at the detail of the engravings the Anglo Saxons used to decorate their costume.

Our home learning will enhance their knowledge further and we would appreciate you encouraging and supporting your child to complete as many of the tasks as possible.

Our 'Home Learning Challenge - Autumn 2' is available to download.

Autumn 1 Term

Y5 are looking forward to an exciting year of learning.

Our learning journey for this half term is all about the sea, 'How deep is deep and can we get there?' We will be learning about the depths of the ocean and what lives there.

In our English lessons we will be exploring a variety of genres also linked to our curriculum journey. We are looking forward to our sleepover at the Deep in Hull, as this will further enhance our learning as well as being an incredible experience.

Our 'Home Learning Challenge - Autumn 1' has been set and the teachers are really looking forward to seeing what the children will bring.

The Y5 Overview - 2017/2018 Autumn 1 explains our Autumn 1 learning in more detail.

Our Autumn 1 Learning

Y5 thoroughly enjoyed our journey to the depths of the ocean. We had a whale of a time at The Deep, where the children were literally sleeping with the fishes!! This experience ignited their passion for delving into the fascinating underwater world.

The half term was capped off with a classroom aquarium, where the children enjoyed sharing their learning with parents and carers.
