Our Learning- Summer Term

In English this term, we are learning about myths from the Ancient Mayas. We will be analysing the story of 'The Hero Twins', linking it closely with our history topic of the Mayas. We pay close attention to how the Mayas lived their lives, sports that were played and things that they believed in.

Measurement and position will be covered in maths in a variety of different ways, as it is important that we can solve more challenging problems by carefully explaining our methods. Arithmetic skills and times tables will also be covered.

Anglo-Saxon Day

We thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as Anglo-Saxons this term. We created Anglo-Saxon pottery and made pottage, which we then cooked over the campfire.

Everyone in Year 5 had the opportunity to participate in a 2-day bike course that taught them how to ride safely on the road, signalling to change direction and how to listen out for potential hazards. They all did extremely well.
