St Peter's Community Primary School

Year 5

This term in Lighthouse Class...

Spring term: What an exciting term ahead of us in Year 5! This term’s topic is the Tudors and we’ll be starting this in style by taking part in a Tudor-themed scavenger hunt around the school in the morning and then learning to dance like a Tudor in the afternoon. We’ll also be visiting Brighton’s Theatre Royal to watch a performance of Terrible Tudors, as part of the Horrible Histories series.

Meanwhile in Literacy, we'll be using our topic knowledge to write a diary entry about what it was like to be a child in Tudor Britain and exploring the work of William Shakespeare. In maths, we'll be learning about written multiplication and division methods using 2 and 3 digit numbers, while also reading and interpreting information in tables and line graphs. I'm also really looking forward to history, where we’ll be focusing on the reign of King Henry VIII and considering his legacy and impact on the nature of present day British society.

In P.E. during the Spring term, we'll be focusing on athletics while also continuing to develop our knowledge of a variety of invasion games. While in science, we'll be finding out more about how the heart works and the functions of blood and evaluating what it takes to lead a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet.
