Year 5 Topic overview.pdf



In English, we will be reading The Legend of Beowulf and Grendel and writing our own versions. We will also be reading ‘Viking Boy’ by Tony Bradman and studying the genre of historical fiction, writing our own stories set in the past. We will be consolidating our work on relative clauses and parenthesis, as well as using more advanced punctuation. We will be continuing to develop our comprehension skills in reading.


In Maths, we will be further consolidating our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages. We will study shape, space and measures and statistics.


We will be finishing off our Forces topic in the first part of the half term. We will then be studying the ‘Vicious’ Vikings and trying to find out if the Vikings really were vicious. In this history topic, we will be focusing on changes during the Viking period and the ways different people across the period lived. We will also look at different accounts of the Vikings throughout history and draw our own conclusions. We will make our own moving toys based on Viking long ships.


This half term, our PE sessions will be based on football for our outdoor PE and martial arts style dance for our indoor PE.
