Welcome to Year 5's Class Page

Year 5 have had a great term making pyramids, Ancient Egyptian death masks and learning about the Ancient Egyptian culture.

In January we will be returning to school and 'The Vikings'. We will, through our studies in geography and history, find out where Vikings came from and understand how and why they invaded Britain. We will be looking at how Anglo-Saxon kings dealt with the invaders, what Viking warriors were like and how they lived an worked.

In English, in order to immerse ourselves in Viking culture and lifestyles, we will be reading The Saga of Eric the Viking by Terry Jones.

 

In maths we will focus on fractions throughout the spring term focussing on fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

Our science studies will be focussed on space we will be learning about The Planets, Night and Day and the movement of the moon. 

Homework will be set on Google Classrooms and will include; reading, times tables practise, maths and spellings from the Year 5 Spellings list. Please help your children to learn their times tables. They can use TTRS or other online games.
