Term 1

Our Term 1 topic has been World War One, which the children have enjoyed immensely. The book ‘War Horse’ by Michael Morpurgo has been a fantastic stimulus for our reading and writing lessons, meaning that all of our written work from this term has been set during the events of World War One. The year group have made some excellent progress already, expanding their knowledge of punctuation and beginning to make more deliberate choices when selecting vocabulary and phrases to enrich their writing.

In maths, the pupils moved onto larger numbers with confidence and have been impressing us with their addition and subtraction skills using the column method. We have also been learning about line graphs, which can sometimes be a tricky concept to understand, but the children have produced some brilliantly accurate and clear graphs in their books. Well done Year 5!

Year 5 really enjoyed their World War One day, for which a educational reenactment company visited to deliver ‘Not only the boys’ and ‘Spy school’ workshops!

The children enjoyed working out codes to deliver messages! These we were a large feature of World War One. We also explored artefacts such as cameras, phones and telescopes from the time of the war.



We also learnt about the field hospitals from Nurse Carter and how to dress wounds.
