Welcome to our Year 5 class page! Your teachers this year will be Mr Taylor, Mrs Brannan, Mrs Brown and Mrs Gough. In year 5, we will be preparing you for the move up to your final year at Cayton. We will be working hard in Year 5 and having lots of fun learning about our world, how we can be the best that we can be, and all the fun topics that we will be learning about this year. If you work hard and put in the best efforts you can, and strive to be a great ambassador of the school, we can assure you that you will be rewarded and really see the benefits throughout the year. Our hopes for you this year are lasting happy memories of school, amazing friendships that can never be broken, the confidence to tackle new challenges head on and the independence that is needed as you journey through life. We cannot wait to see what the year ahead brings and we are really looking forward to sharing all these precious moments with you.
What are we learning about?
The story of one Anglo-Saxon boy's journey to the Battle of Hastings in 1066: Key Stage 2 History brought to life as battle-packed adventure.
1065: Magnus is the son of Harold Godwinson, lord of the Southern Saxons and ruthlessly ambitious claimant to the throne of England. Overnight, Magnus finds himself cast centre-stage in the blood-soaked family feud that led to one of history’s most famous battles.
This is the family tragedy behind 1066: live it with Magnus, as the wolves of history close in on his Anglo-Saxon boyhood.
