Curriculum overview - Year 5 Spring
The Wizard, The Ugly and The Book of Shame.
For the last two weeks of the Spring Term, Year 5 will be learning all about the Anglo Saxons. We had a very exciting start to the topic through our visit to Bishops Wood. We met a friendly viking, who took us on a journey across seas in a long boat to England. We found a settlement and worked hard to build shelters and make fires. We also experienced some traditional Anglo Saxon crafts, such as wool spinning, metal work to make jewellery and carving the Anglo Saxon alphabet onto clay pots we made by hand. We all had a great day and can't wait to bring the learning back to the classroom and find out lots more about this period of history. Keep looking at our Twitter page for pictures and updates!
Welcome to the Autumn term in Year 5 and 6
We have already started working hard on our topic:
The children will be finding out more about how the Circus changed through different eras, where the circus began, who the main characters were over the last century and where in the world influenced the different acts you find in the circus today. We will end our journey with Circus week where we will able to learn new skills and perform to an audience.
The second half of the Autumn term we will be focusing on World War 1. This brings our learning in line with the commemoration of the end of World War 1 in 1918.
