Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Our topic for the Autumn term is the Anglo Saxons. We will begin the topic by finding out who the Anglo Saxons were, where they came from and the location of their settlements. We will then be learning about the day to day life of an Anglo Saxon including what they did for work, their religion and their defence techniques.



Children will have PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Children will need to make sure they have a full PE kit in school on these days. Please make sure their PE kit has their name in it. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair will need to be tied back.


Reading Challenge

The All Saints reading challenge is an opportunity for children to earn certificates for reading in school and at home. The more the children read, the more certificates they can receive. It is really important to encourage reading to be done as often as possible at home. Although the children do not have to read to an adult, an adult will need to sign their records to say they have seen them reading. Children will need to ensure their reading records are in school every day.


Music workshop

On the 13/09/17 class 5 were lucky enough to take part in a music workshop using an online program. The children composed their own pieces of music and began writing lyrics ready to perform. As a class, we will be continuing these music sessions weekly, composing a class song as well as their own pieces. The children will each be given a login which they will be able to use at home.
