Welcome to Class 5
Miss J Pedder

Welcome to Year 5!
I hope you have all had a brilliant summer and you’re recharged and ready for the new term!
First of all, I would like to say that I was really impressed with the summer homework that the children have completed. The homework is being displayed in class and has really helped to build up our immersive Viking environment.
This term our creative curriculum topic is the book ‘The Viking Boy’, which is linked closely to all of our subjects. In topic we will be learning all about the Vikings, and their history, making Viking shields and learning to write their alphabet.
In English this term we will be baking and writing instructions for Viking bread, writing recounts from different characters’ points of view in the story, creating a non-chronological report on Viking Gods and writing a poem about the Valkyries.
In Maths this term we will be continuing to practise our times tables. Rehearsing these at home will really benefit your child’s mental maths abilities. We will also be focusing on place value, adding and subtracting 4-digit numbers and solving problems involving multiplication and division.
In October, we will be going on an exciting trip to the Danelaw Viking Centre, details will follow.
Thank you for your support. I hope you are looking forward to the new term as much as we are!
Miss Pedder and Mrs Crowther
We have done lots of exciting things this term so far! We have made Viking bread, made a large to scale model of the solar system outside with fruit and toilet roll and made Viking shields. Pictures to come!
