This term we will begin our topic ‘How Did The Kingdom Become United?’ which is a historical and geographical study of the struggle for Britain during the Dark Ages (predominantly investigating the Anglo Saxons and Vikings as reluctant neighbours). This topic will be host to lots of practical historical enquiry, purposeful outdoor learning and exciting role-play so we can really experience the lives of people from the past.

Through immersive drama, we will explore the mystery of the empty Saxon grave, scrutinise primary and secondary sources and even search for evidence of the Dark Ages in our school grounds!


This term we will begin with a focus on the video The Present, which explores key concepts such as acceptance and disability awareness. The children will be completing their own version of the story. They will be then following this up with writing a set of instructions on how to look after a day, using the skills that they have utilised from their first piece of writing. 

In reading, the children will be focusing on retrieval skills to begin with, finding the key information from the text and copying the answer. Then, we will be exploring different techniques on how to answer more complicated inference questions.


We will begin to explore the Year 5 AREs with a focus on many different place value and aritihmetic skils that we want the children to develop. We will look at the value of numbers and how to work out what each digit means in a number. The children will also be rounding numbers, ordering them and using number lines in order to help them with this.


Monday- Gymnastics

Tuesday- Swimming


We will continue to post about our learning on Class Dojo so keep an eye out on there to see what we are up to. Please feel free to message us there too if you have any questions or concerns and we are always on the Year 5 ramp before and after school for a chat as well!
