"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

This term we are learning...

Condover Hall Topic Book (please see below for Summer One's learning overview):

Some of Year 5's Current Favourite Books and Authors:

Anglo-Saxon and Viking Day (10.1.22)


Year 5 will have a very exciting start to our Spring One Topic as we'll be receiving a special visit from an Anglo-Saxon! 


Throughout the day the children will be taking part in a number of different activities to fully immerse themselves in our new 'Invaders' topic (the Knowledge Organiser and key information for this half term can be found below). To add to the experience, we are asking the children to dress as an Anglo-Saxon, or Viking, for the day.  We know how creative you all are so please use your imagination and what you already have at home- we do also have a number of items that can be borrowed for the day if needed. 


Thanks as always for your support and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or need any help. 



Your school trousers or skirt and a white shirt/top would be a great start. You could even have a go at making your own Anglo-Saxon or Viking helmet from card (or a bowl and tinfoil can work wonders!)
