Autumn 1 Learning 2021

This term in Year 5 we have enjoyed learning about the Anglo Saxons and Vikings, their culture, beliefs and life style. During our literacy sessions, we looked at the book The Lost Spells and did the fantastic learning followed by writing poems and watercolor painting.

Our Science sessions we dedicated to the Earth, Moon and the Sun. We learned about Nicolaus Copernicus who proved that the Earth moves around the Sun. During our PSHE sessions we were learning how to be a caring friend, how to work as a part of a team and how to manage our distractions.

Also, we celebrated the Feast of St Teresa, learned about Judaism and prayed the Rosary.

Autumn 2 Learning 2021

In Year Five, we have continued learning about the Vikings. As part of our learning, we spent some time on exploring Viking jewellery and during our D&T sessions, we made them out of clay and evaluated them afterwards. Also, our art lessons focused on Viking art and sketching the dragon’s head using different sketching techniques.

We have also celebrated Black History Month and shared our knowledge about the Black History Icons. During our maths sessions, we learned about decimal numbers and how to multiply and divide them by 10, 100 and 1000.

During our literacy lessons, we focused on non-fiction text - The Monsterology where we learned about the incredible creatures and described them, using a variety of sentences with the adverbial phrases and subordinating conjunctions.

We have also taken part in learning about COP26, discussing climate issues, creating Eyes of the World posters and making pledges to care for our world.
