Cross-Curricular Topics

This Autumn term, we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings in our history topic. This will take many forms over the course of term, as we find out about how the Anglo-Saxons affected our country, write stories and play scripts about Viking raids and even meet a ‘real-life’ Anglo-Saxon or Viking and excavate a grave on our trip to Weaver Hall.


Along with our cross-curricular writing about the Anglo-Saxons, we will be reading a dark and spooky version of Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman and basing writing across a range of genres on this book.


In Maths, we will be beginning our year 5 work by looking at Place Value, rounding, negative numbers and comparing and ordering numbers, before we begin to look at our written methods of addition and subtraction.

Much of our work in maths this year is aided by a sound knowledge of times tables, so please help your children practice in any way you can at home.

All children should have a Times tables rocks! password. Your child should be accessing this atleast once a week at home to practice their tables.

Helpful Website

Please click here to visit the BBC bitesize website to practise aspects in all the three subjects- maths, science and English. Our calculation policy on the website is very useful to practise methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
