Working Together for Excellence

Year 5


Our topic this term is called 'The Invaders'. We will be studying the Vikings. The class will look at everything from the building of longships to life in a Viking settlement. We will explore our topic through history, geography, science, PSHCE, art, design and even PE! We are hoping to go on a class trip to London to look at a range of Viking artefacts and have a workshop on the adventures of the Vikings 



Homework and spellings will be handed out weekly on a Tuesday and must be returned by the following Monday. The children will have encountered similar activities in class prior to receiving the homework. They should only spend 30 minutes on their homework. If it takes any longer, please write a little note on the bottom. If you need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask. Children should practise their spellings at home but we will also practise them in class.



This term we will be having PE lessons on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. We will be learning to play tag rugby this term with Mr Burton and either dance or gymnastics with Miss Hudson. Children will need a navy t-shirt, navy or black shorts (tracksuit trousers as it gets colder) and trainers. All must be named. Please ensure that children bring their PE kits in on Mondays and leave them in school until Friday.We would recommend that children bring a named water bottle.
