Amazon - Year Five

This half term we will be learning all about ‘The Anglo Saxons’. Where they came from, where they settled in the UK and what life was like at that time. We will be going to Dunstan’s Hall to take part in an exciting Anglo Saxon day.

In literacy we will be looking at and writing adverts, our own adventure stories and news reports. Our class novel is ‘The Silver Sword’ by Michael Morpurgo and this will inspire our writing and also be used in our guided reading sessions.

In Maths we are continuing using problem solving and reasoning skills while learning about fractions, decimals and percentages, and then the properties of 3d shapes and angles. In Science we will be learning all about space and what’s out there’. We will also be having a visit from the Fire Service to learn about Fire safety.
