In RE this term, we will be answering the question ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died ‘Good Friday’?’ and learning the importance of Easter.
In English, we will be focusing on reading and writing classic stories, persuasive texts and explanation texts linked to our topic. To begin with, we are going to be reading about the adventures of Beowulf and the many monsters he faced.
In Maths, we have started the term by revising areas of maths explored in the autumn term. We will then be continuing to work on calculating with fractions, decimals and percentages, as well as beginning our geometry and statistics curriculum.
This term, alongside Class 4, Class 5 will be historians learning about The Middle Ages. The children will be travelling back in time to the Middle Ages, exploring this fascinating and interesting period. They will be learning about what village, town and castle life was like. We will be learning the key events that occurred during this period and putting them into timelines. A visit to a medieval castle will help us to experience what life was like and to see for ourselves artefacts from this period of time. At the end of the topic, we will be celebrating our learning through having a medieval festival (so get thinking about your costumes).
In PE, Class 5 will be learning the skills and rules of TAG rugby down at The Rec.
Class 5 consists of Year 5 and Year 6 children
