Amazon - Year Five 

This half-term we are continuing our topic ‘Why did the Anglo-Saxons come to Britain?’. We will be finding out about where the Anglo-Saxons lived and how their daily lives changed in Britain- linking our learning to previous learning that we have done about the Romans and Norman castles. In art and DT, we will be looking at ‘illuminated letters’ used to decorate chronicles during the spread of Christianity in Anglo-Saxon Britain.  In science, we will be learning about different life cycles including flowering and non-flowering plants, mammals, amphibians and insects. In RE, we will continue our topic on ‘What do we know about Islam?’. In PSHE we will be studying Mindmate (coping with big changes in our lives) and ‘different influences’- drug tobacco and alcohol education. In PE, we will be working on our physical skills when taking on challenges, improving our dynamic agility skills and balancing skills as well as looking at the game of dodgeball. 

In Spanish, we will be learning numbers to 30, the days of the week and the seasons.
