Teacher – Miss Crisp
Here in Saint Teresa’s class we start every day with Guided Reading. We would be ever so thankful if any parents could kindly come in and hear us read (we love showing off how good we are!). Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you are able to help for 20 – 30 minutes any morning.
- Saint Teresa’s homework will be set on a Friday, this will include: Spellings (green book) – These will need to be practised at home ready for a test every Thursday. Alongside grammar, math or topic based work. This all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Wednesday.
- PE will take place on a Friday afternoons, please ensure your child comes to school in their kit. This includes trainers, a house colour top and navy/black shorts.
- Reading at home is a real passion for Miss Crisp. We would love all of the children within Saint Teresa’s class to read 5 times per week to an adult outside of school (it would be fantastic if you are able to document this in the children’s yellow reading diaries). Both myself and the class teaching assistants will keep a close eye on this (Monday – Monday) and any children fulfilling this task will be rewarded with a stamp towards their reading awards.
- Our weekly mile is scheduled to take place every Wednesday, so make sure you're ready to take part, enjoy and increase your fitness!
Throughout this topic, Year 5 will be historians, exploring the raids and invasions by Vikings in Anglo-Saxon Britain. The children will learn who the Vikings were as well as when and where they raided and settled. They will learn about significant events from the period and order these chronologically on a timeline.
As well this, the children will find out about the Anglo-Saxon kings who ruled during the 'Viking Age' and examine their influence and significance in British history.
In addition to this, they will learn about the Anglo-Saxon justice system and compare and contrast crimes, punishments and laws with their modern day equivalents.
The children will also have the opportunity to learn about different aspects of everyday Viking life. They will explore the types of houses that the Vikings lived in, what clothes they wore and even what types of food they ate.
