Year 5 Curriculum 

Autumn 1

Anglo-Saxons and Vikings 


This term we are learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We have been having so much fun! In English, we have written character descriptions about Beowolf and Grendel and written instructions on how to capture and slay a monster. In History and Geography, we have learnt about Anglo-Saxon villages, food and where the Anglo-Saxons came from. Did you know...Vikings hung shields off the side of their longboats to protect them? Ask us anything...we'd love to tell you! 


We've also been working hard in other subjects too. In Maths, we have covered place value, addition and subtraction. We have learnt how to use the column method involving two exchanges! In Science, we have carried out different experiments based on materials and their properties. In Art, we have been learning to sketch and have modelled with clay to create some amazing dragon eyes to compliment the story we have been reading in English. We have also been working hard in French too, ask us what our name is, how we are, the numbers to 10 and different colours. In our wider curriculum, we have spent time celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali and did some fantastic work about Black History Month. 

 Take a look at everything we've been getting up to....enjoy! If you would like to support us with our learning, please see the curriculum overview for this term below.
