Year 5

Miss Chadwick is the teacher in Year 5. 

There are many exciting, engaging and awe-inspiring lessons in Year 5 this term. Our English will be all about myths and legends. Ancient myths and legends are really fun to learn about but not only this they hold a greater significance in our modern society as we take a lot of our common practices such as democracy, the Olympics or art galleries from Ancient civilizations that have passed these things to us through the telling and retelling of common myths and legends.

We are also looking at Geography part of our Humanities topic based on ‘Rivers’. We will be looking at oceans of the world, Scandinavia and the Vikings. We will study and map the amazing journeys on which the Vikings took on their long ships to plunder and rule far off lands.

Science and experiments, we have been looking at Forces, exploring gravity and carrying out many outdoor investigations. Our next plan will be to explore the plant and animal life cycle which will mean lots more exciting investigations to challenge us.

Spanish will be continuing as we use what we have learnt already and try using phrases for conversations and writing sentences about ourselves and our families.

There are some fantastic homework ideas to do each half term too based around all curriculum areas. Take a picture and send it to the Year5 email, then we can share your great work as a class
