Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Lean!

Autumn Term 1 2021

Hello and welcome to Year 5. I hope you have all had a relaxing summer and are fully recharged for a new school year. Thankfully, we are getting a little bit back to normal and school life will be so much fun this year.

This half term, Year 5 will be looking at the Anglo-Saxons for their History and English. We will be learning about how they changed England and our class Novel will be the Saxon myth of Beowulf; super exciting and a little scary! In DT, we will learn how to use stiff and flexible materials to make an Anglo-Saxon house using different equipment like saws and bench grips.

In addition, we will be looking at forces in Science and how they are all around us whilst our continent focus this term is Africa, so we will be using our geographical skills to help research this vast and interesting area of the world. 

Finally in PE we will be learning how to play Tag Rugby, using our agility and speed to help score tries, whilst also having fun!


Below is the Medium Term Plan for what Year 5 will be doing this term, so feel free to look at the different objectives we will be covering. 


Kind Regards 

Mr Lean/Mrs Ruler/Mrs Tyrer
