Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life

Y5 Curriculum

Spring Term 1 

Welcome back, I hope you have had a fantastic break and celebrating the holidays in style. 

We enter the New Year of 2022 by immersing ourselves in the world of the Vikings (raaaarrrr!!!) We will be learning all about Britain between 793AD and 1066AD. In year 5, we will be exploring questions like; Who were the Vikings? Where did they come from? Were the Vikings as vicious as we're told? 

Art will be covered by Mrs Carol-Lane but will also link to out exciting topic. 

In Music, we will be exploring music notation and begin to create our own tunes using the correct written format to express our music. 

In RE, we will be exploring religious teachings and begin making our own decisions about whether these teachers are relevant to modern day. We will be partially focused on how religious teachings have changed and why this might have occurred. 

In Wellbeing, we will be thinking forward to our futures and begin discussing future careers, goals and ambition. Year 5s will have the opportunity to begin exploring the things they may do in life to support their future goals. 

Spanish will cover the house and we will begin building sentences and writing these using our Spanish vocabulary. 

In Maths, we are revisiting place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 

In English, we will be delving into myths and legends and re-writing our own version of Beowulf (GRUSOME!)

Of course, we also are lucky enough to be able to go swimming - so remember those kits on MONDAY
