Invasions - Anglo-Saxons and The Vikings


Welcome to Year 5!

We have attached below a more detailed Termly Overview, which will provide you with a list of topics and subjects taught in Year 5 throughout the first Summer term.

This initial half term, there will be a History theme, Invasions and Anglo-Saxons/Vikings, which will be a focus throughout. In English, we will be identifying facts and information relating to why the Anglo Saxons came to England and where they came from. We will research the Battle of Edington and use our findings to create a newspaper report. Additionally, we will also be exploring a range of folklores and legends, linked to Norse Mythology. We will then write our own narrative based on these features.

Maths objectives will continue to be linked to White Rose, concentrating on geometry, specifically on shape, angles, position and direction. We will focus and use various concrete, pictorial and written methods to consolidate our understanding and recognise the relationship between each operation.  

In Science we will complete investigations and research linked to Properties and the Changes of Materials. In this topic, we will find out about different materials, their uses and their properties, as well as dissolving, separating mixtures and irreversible changes. We will sort and classify objects according to their properties. Furthermore, we will explore the properties of materials to find the most suitable material for different purposes.

Please see the overview below to find out about learning in other areas of our Year 5 curriculum.
