Macaws - Year 5 2020 - 2021

Miss Michiels



Spring Term 2020

Curriculum Learning - Spring 1


Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and have started the new year with lots of enthusiasm.


Our history topic for this half term will focus on the Vikings and the children will find an answer to the question ‘Would the Vikings do anything for money?’ In this unit, the children will learn about the Vikings and consider the reasons why they raided and then settled in Britain. They will investigate the popular view of the Vikings as raiders, ruthless in their ways of obtaining wealth. They will study primary sources of evidence, such as accounts by monks of the raid on Lindisfarne, as well as archaeological finds, to understand why this interpretation of the Vikings has become so popular.

However, we will start this half term by reading the story of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" by Arthur Conan Doyle.  

“Excitement! Intrigue! Suspense! Horror!
Beware of the Hound…
Will Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson discover the truth behind the fearsome legend of the beast with blazing eyes and dripping jaws?”

The children will plan and write a cliff-hanger narrative and a formal event report. We'll also write poetry about wolves inspired by The Hound. 


To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.

It's an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School!

Kind Regards,

Miss Michiels
