Macaws - Year 5 2020 - 2021
Autumn Term 2020
Curriculum Learning - Autumn 1
Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a lovely summer break and are ready for the enriching term ahead.
In our history topic for this half-term, the children will learn about the world of the Anglo-Saxons. We will discuss "Was the Anglo-Saxon period really a Dark Age?" They will consider why the Anglo-Saxons came to Britain and whether the period deserves to be called the ‘Dark Ages’.
However, we will start this half-term by looking at the book "Where Once We Stood" by Christopher Riley.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk on the Moon? To follow in the footsteps of the Moonwalkers from the Apollo missions? “Where Once We Stood” tells the stories of the twelve human beings who landed on the Moon between July 1969 and December 1972, spending a total of just over 300 hours there. Each mission is retold, using the actual conversations that took place between the astronauts on the lunar surface.
The children will plan and write an exploration narrative and a formal report to recount the Apollo mission’s events. We'll also write poetry inspired by this book.
Reading, Spelling and Maths homework will be set each Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
There will be 2 pieces of online homework for the children to complete.
To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.

It's going to be an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School!
