Chaffinches – Year 5


Teacher: Mr P Morgan

Teaching assistant: Mrs Peachey-Austing

Welcome to Chaffinch Class!


We are very lucky this year to be in a brand new room which used to be the ICT suite. 


Term 1:

This term our topic focus is The Anglo-Saxons. This is a great topic full of great art and craft opportunities in addition to the epic poem 'Beowulf'. Beowulf is possibly the oldest surviving long poem in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature. It was written in England some time between the 8th and the early 11th century. We will be reading the completing work based on the Michael Morpurgo version. Please feel free to purchase this book or to complete any additional tasks based on this. 


Although it is not expected, it is always great to see the children inspired by our topic and see them complete any creative or written tasks based on our topic. Please feel free to bring in any work to put on our class display.


Other focuses this term will be materials, in science; football and gymnastics, in PE and kennings and descriptive writing, in literacy.
