Year 5 curriculum

Welcome back to year 5 for the Spring Term!

This term our topic will be ‘The Rise and Fall of an Empire’, which will require us to develop our understanding of the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons. This exciting topic will allow us to demonstrate our knowledge and skills in many ways including, creating mosaics and become Roman Warriors on an amazing trip to Murton Park.

As well as this, we will look at how we welcome people and embrace their culture. We will explore our own buried treasure finding out about our own individual talents.

As always we look forward to PE on a Monday and Friday and the many other exciting learning opportunities that come our way.

Homework will be set at the start of each half term and collected in a week before the end of the half term.

We really love to hear about all of the exciting books, non-fiction text and poetry your children read at home and welcome any comments from the children, parents or carers about what has been read. The expectation of reading a minimum of three times a week has an excellent impact on reading stamina and creative writing in school. We would also encourage the use of Times Tables Rockstars as this supports your child’s fluency in Maths lessons.

Thank you for your continued support.
