Class Five

Year 5 has had another busy term! Our topic has been the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and we have loved getting to know everything about these two civilisations. We talked about why they came to Britain, where they settled, and all about the turbulent relationship, culminating in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. To bring this to life, we went on a school trip to Tatton Park, where we were immersed in what life would have been like back then! Our English has been very focused around this topic too, using the texts: Beowulf and Odd and the Frost Giants. We also wrote brilliant battle speeches and acted out our very own Battle of Hastings, turning these into Oscar-worthy films!

Maths has been all about fractions this half term, looking at equivalent fractions, adding and subtracting, and multiplying! We will be moving on to decimals and percentages after Easter. Our science has been focusing on properties and changes of materials and we have done lots of exciting experiments to test these!

For Easter,we have re-read the Easter story, thinking about who was responsible for Jesus' sacrifice, and how we remember what Jesus did for us. 

We have an equally exciting Summer term coming up, and will be focusing on completing our Young Leaders' Award! 


For families of children already in our school please remember to regularly view Tapestry for our weekly shout outs and much more!
