Welcome to Year 5!
This half-term, Year 5 will be learning all about the Victorians. We will be looking at how things drastically changed and discussing some of the main advances during this era. Year 5 will be writing biographies for some famous people from the Victorian period. After finding out about the author Charles Dickens, the children will be analysing the classic novel and film adaptations of 'Oliver Twist' which is set in the Victorian times.
In addition to our History-based theme, we will also be learning about Space through our Science topic. Year 5 will find out about the different planets as well as the Sun and Moon.
In P.E. we will be working on our fitness as well as improving our own results in different athletics activities. On Thursday afternoons, Mrs Wright will be supporting the children with their skills in Ronders! Swimming will continue on a Friday afternoon.
Time is literally flying by! There are always little changes around this time of year so please keep your eyes on 'Weekly Newsletters' sent home.
