Swallows - Year 5

Welcome to the Autumn Term in

Swallows Class


Thank you to those parents who were able to make it to my

'Meet the Teacher' session during week 1, please find my power point

presentation below for those of you unable to make it. 

Please also find below a copy of my curriculum map for the year.



The Anglo Saxons

and the Vikings


In the first two weeks we have been enjoying finding our way around our new topic:


We are studying the story of Beowulf in English and deciding how we can create our own 'Defeating the Monster' tale. 

We have been hot seating as the main characters King Hrothgar and Beowulf and thinking about how the characters are feeling. 

We have written a narrative poem using rhyme. 




Week Beginning 16th September


Look out for two letters coming home this week about some trips we have planned this half term, please return them as soon as possible.


We are expecting to find out the dates for our two 'Taster Days' up at Shaftesbury High School - this is a fabulous opportunity for your child to experience a morning in secondary school and even if your child is not planning to attend Shaftesbury, I thoroughly recommend that they come with us.
