Welcome to Year 5! I have lots of fantastic things planned for Monkey class this term. I am very lucky to be working with such a wonderful group of children. This term we will be exploring ‘Did the past write the future?’ The children will look at the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings and the way they influenced our world today. We are going to be looking at everything from Anglo-Saxon creations to how transport has changed over time. In literacy we will be writing a diary entry based on a day in the life of a Viking and writing an information text based on all of our new knowledge of the Saxons and the Vikings. In class we will be reading the novel ‘The 1000 Year Old Boy’ by Ross Welford. I am very excited to get started!
