This term our project is: HOW LONG IS YOUR BOAT?

We will be learning all about the Saxons and Vikings.

We will discover: where they came from, why they invaded Britain, what they wore, what weapons they used, what they ate and much more.

For our WOW event we will be making Viking shields.

Year 5 will be given homework on a Friday and it is essential that it is completed as it gives children the opportunity to independently practice the skills they have acquired in school and extend their learning.

Homework given each week in Year 5 is:

  • One piece of English homework;
  • One piece of Maths homework;
  • Spellings;
  • Homework tasks researching specific areas for our project is given when required.

Children may be set activities that require Internet access.  We appreciate not every child has home access to the Internet. Should this be the case, please contact your child’s class teacher in advance so alternative arrangements can be made.

Children should also be regularly reading at home. All reading, whether aloud to parents or quietly to themselves, should be recorded in their reading records, which must be in school every day.

RRS year 5 – all of year 5 have signed class charters at the beginning of the year to agree how our rights will be respected by pupils and adults throughout the school.

The main articles that we felt were appropriate for our class setting were : 12, 13, 14, 24, 28, 29, 30 and 31.
