Year 5

Year 5 Class Page

So far this term, we have explored the stories of Oliver Jeffers, Anthony Browne and David Walliams and written stories inspired by these authors. We are now reading the Legends of King Arthur and working towards writing our own legends inspired by these stories. We have been revising and extending our knowledge of place value and addition and subtraction in Maths.

Our topic for this half term is ‘Off With Her Head’ and we are learning all about The Tudors with a focus on Henry VIII and his wives. The class have produced some fabulous portrait work based on the Tudor portraits of Hans Holbein.
