Kingfishers - Year 5

Autumn – Term 2

Welcome to Kingfishers' class page!


This half term, Kingfishers will be exploring the world of the Ancient Greeks - including their myths, Gods, democracy and the Olympics. 


In our writing lessons, we have written battle speeches to inspire the Athenians before the fall of Troy, and a newspaper report of the cunning plan by Odysseus to offer a gift of a wooden horse to the Trojans. We will also be creating our own Greek myths and adding an extra trial for Hercules to complete!


Our current book is Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. Throughout all of our reading lessons, we will be focusing on using our VIPERs reading skills. These skills are vocabulary, inference, prediction, explain, retrieve and summarise. 


In maths this half term, we are exploring statistics, multiplication/division and measurement. Children will be building on the knowledge they have gained so far in their learning. 


Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:

Science – Earth and Space

Computing - Online safety

RE - Sikhism 

PSHE - Thinking Positive

PE - Tag Rugby

Music - Brass lessons

Forest School


This term is set to be busy - and Christmas is around the corner!
