Dear Year 5 Parents and Carers
We had a fantastic day at our Anglo Saxon Workshop. All the children were fully engaged and we thank you for your support with costumes!
Our learning next week:
In maths, we will use our place value knowledge to round numbers. We will move onto addition, using the formal column method.
In English, we are writing our setting descriptions based on our year text – Anglo Saxon Boy. Then the children will have the opportunity to create their own setting descriptions.
In science we will research how some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution.
During foundation we are learning that there are a range of factors that contribute to a person’s identity (e.g. ethnicity, family, faith, culture, gender, hobbies, likes/dislikes) in PSHE, planning a game in computers and in history we will understand why the Romans left Britain.
Please continue to use email@example.com to contact the staff with any queries or comments.
The children have received a topic homework that needs to be completed by Monday 17th October. The details are as follows:
For our Autumn term home project we would like to you think about Anglo-Saxon life and create something which reflects your knowledge of this period in British history. This could include:
- Design an Anglo Saxon settlement (either as a model or a picture/map noting down key features such as choice of area, building materials used and deciding what animals would be kept and why)
- Re-create an Anglo Saxon house (this could be a labelled drawing or a sculpture)
- Anglo Saxon food (you could create a traditional dish and photograph it or bring it in to school or make a recipe or recipe book)
- Create a written presentation or a PowerPoint on ‘Anglo-Saxon Life as a child’ and compare it to how children live today
BBC bitesize have lots of ideas and is a great place to help your research.
This project is due by Monday 17th October. If you need any help or materials, please talk to your teacher.
Miss Smith, Mrs Khan, Mrs Stephens and Mr Lowe and all the Year 5 team
