Term 1 Overview

Year 5 Term 1 Overview

We are excited this term as we are learning about the Anglo-Saxons. The children will be researching about Anglo-Saxon life in Britain. We will be visiting the Michelham Priory to take part in a variety of Anglo-Saxon workshops.

In English we will be reading the Anglo-Saxon story “Beowulf”. We will also be writing about Anglo Saxon homes and using the Horrible Histories book “Smashing Saxons” as a stimulus for writing.

In Maths our focus this term will be on place value, the four operations and statistics.
