Welcome to our year group page, where you can find our curriculum overviews, latest news, photos of learning opportunities and achievements in Year 5.

Current Topic- Vicious Vikings! -Spring Term 4

The theme of learning in Year 5 this half term is the Viking invasion!  Children will have the opportunities to build their historical knowledge by finding out why the Vikings invaded Britain and how they came to blows with the Anglo-Saxons when they arrived on Saxon land.  Pupils will then move on to learning about Viking settlements and find out why the Vikings settled in certain areas of the country.  A highlight of this term's learning is the chance to explore Viking art and how it links to modern art of today in the form of tattoos.  We have also organised for the children to take part in our Viking Experience Day with ‘Portals to the Past’ which promises to be a fantastic opportunity to learn even more through a viking expert!

Reminders and Routines

Children must bring a named water bottle into school each day and all school uniform should be clearly labelled to ensure it can be returned to your child if misplaced. If you have arranged for your child to be collected by another adult that this is communicated to the office or the class teacher.

During summer months, please also make sure your child has a sun hat to wear outside and has sun cream applied each morning before school.
