Year 5 – Dolphins

Latest Updates

This Weeks Learning

Next week the children will finish their click, click, capture topic with a DT week. They will design and create their own photo frame.

Our topic this half term is called ‘Vikings’.

The children will be looking at persuasive writing and poetry. This will link to our community outcome, where children will attempt to use effective persuasive writing to convince people to use their local library.

We will be spending a large portion of our topic time on history and art, studying the Viking culture and look at how the Vikings impacted Britain.

In ICT, the children will be using their growing understanding of coding to develop a simple game.

We have also set a home learning project, based on the Vikings. We are asking the children to design and make their own Viking shield or helmet. Children are expected to research before creating their design.

As we now enter the final term in year 5, reading 5 times a week is as important as ever, and we would really encourage the children to read as widely and frequently as possible. We will continue to use the Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars app in school, and it would be really beneficial if the children could continue to access these apps at home also. If your child has any concerns, we would really encourage them to come and see us.

Thanks, the Year 5 team.

Our topic this half term is called ‘Vikings’

The children will be creating their own graphic narratives based around comic strips.

We will be spending a large portion of our topic time on history and art, looking at how the Greeks developed over time and the art work associated with the Greeks.

In ICT, the children will be using scratch to create their own computer game, again drawing inspiration from our Greek topic.

We have also set a home learning project, based on the Greek gods. We are asking the children to design their own top trump cards, which the children will be able to play throughout the term.
