Year 5 Never Settle For Less Than Your Best


   Spring Term 

Can you imagine an alien landscape?

During the morning, years 5 and 6 worked in pairs to do just that.

Inspired by our text ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’ we imagined, designed, and created our own alien landscape.

We used a wide range of materials including paint, sand, bubble wrap, tin foil and straws to build and decorate our designs.

In the afternoon, we placed them all together and experienced walking through the alien world we had created together.

We had a fantastic time!

Autumn 2

This term we will be learning about the Vikings.

As part of our Wow day learning we learnt about the end of Anglo-Saxon and Viking rule in Britain and the battle of Hastings.

We looked at images of the Bayeux Tapestry and enjoyed sewing our own panel. These will be attached in order to tell the story of the battle.    

 Autumn 1

During the first term we learnt all about the Anglo-Saxons.

As part of our homework project we were invited to create a piece of our choosing inspired by the story of Beowulf.

I think you’ll agree we did a fantastic job! Our corridor looks fantastic.
