Welcome to Year 5

The Terrible Tudors

This Autumn Term our topic is called The Terrible Tudors, where we will be learning all about the Tudor times. We will be exploring events such as the Battle of Bosworth and discover all about Tudor crime and punishment through to Tudor pastimes!

During science lessons this half term, we will be looking at properties and changes of their materials! We will be separating mixtures, creating our own investigations to dissolve salt in different solutions and investigate filtration.

 We have already started to read our class novel - Kensuke’s Kingdom and so far, in our reading lessons, we have made some fantastic predictions about what we think might happen in Kensuke’s Kingdom and are intrigued to see what will happen next!

 Books we are reading this half term:  'Road to London' by Barbara Mitchelhill and ‘Kensuke's Kingdom' By Michael Morpurgo
