Year 5 Sanchez

Welcome to Sanchez Class. Our teacher is Miss Stanbrough and our teaching assistant is Mrs Toms.

This term our topic is The Vikings. We will be learning about who the Vikings were and why they raided our shores. We will be using this topic in many other areas of our learning too – by looking at Maps to understand where Vikings are from and the routes they took to complete their raids in Geography, finding out how place names are linked to the Vikings and understanding Viking law. During Art and D&T we will also be having lots of fun in making a Viking Brooch and designing a shield. We will 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? Sanchez Class look forward to sharing all of this with you in their class assembly in October!

We always love PE with SuperSports and are looking forward to starting our new music and computing topics too. So far we have especially loved learning about our class Artist, Jose Benitez Sanchez and the children have made some beautiful works of art. Don’t forget to come and see our displays along the corridor on parents evening!
