Year 5

Year 5 pupils…

Welcome back to Alban Wood and your new class! I am so excited to start Year 5 Rowan with you all and I am sure we will have a fantastic time together!
It will be a big change for many of you after so long at home, but we will get there together – we are here to help and support you as much as we can!
This term we will be exploring the Romans and Celts, poetry, descriptive writing, explanation texts, mosaic art, woad patterns, animal life cycles, coding and so much more!
Excitingly, Mr Smith (who teaches Year 5 on a Friday) will be starting to teach the class Spanish! Extremely lucky for us because he is a fluent Spanish speaker! 
We will be reading ‘The Thieves of Ostia’ by Caroline Lawrence, as our class book, since it is a brilliant start to The Roman Mysteries series and ties in beautifully with our topic!
Let’s work hard together to have an incredible first term! Carpe diem!
Mrs Overy
