Year 5 Hockney


Welcome to Hockney Class. Our teacher is Miss Bowman and our teaching assistant is Mrs Holloway. In our class we always try our best and have as much fun as possible, learning in different ways!

This term our topic is ‘The Vikings’. We will be learning about who the Vikings were, their longboat creation as well as their raids and invasions. Hockney will also be using this topic in other areas of our learning by looking at Maps to understand where Vikings are from and the routes they took to complete their raids in Geography. We will also be finding out how place names are linked to the Vikings too. During Art and D&T we will also be having lots of fun in making a Viking Brooch and designing a shield.

We continue using this topic in our English learning where we compare our alphabet to Viking Runes, write our own Viking narrative poems and own exciting legends, looking at Jeremy Strong’s ‘There’s a Viking in my bed’ as a stimulus. Will Siguard, our Viking warrior, be successful on his quest?

We always love PE with SuperSports and are looking forward to starting our new music and computing topics. So far we have especially loved learning about our class Artist, David Hockney, and have made some beautiful works of art.
