Year 5

This term, our theme is Saxons and Vikings and we will be learning about these periods in time in an exciting and creative way. In art in particular, we will be creating our own Longboat pictures, exploring techniques including collage, painting and sketching. During English sessions, children will be given the opportunity to read the story of How to Train Your Dragon and lessons will be themed around both the text and some clips from the film. As well as continuing to develop mastery in number skills, we will also be focussing on shape, time and statistics. Swimming will continue until Easter and children we continue with PE sessions on a Thursday afternoon. Please can I also gently remind you all of the importance of reading at home regularly and learning set spelling lists weekly; it really does have a huge effect on their learning in class.
