First of all we designed a weaving pattern on brick patterned paper. This will be the first step of our Viking weaving. 



In RE this half term, we are studying many readings from the Bible as we look more in depth at Christianity. 



We began Year 5 by researching the country of Peru, looking at the three different terrains in Geography and completed a detailed factfile to describe Peru. Further, we discovered the marvel of Machu Picchu was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!


Our topic for Autumn term is the Industrial Revolution, where we explored the novel of Street Child by Berlie Doherty in our English lessons, all about the hardships faced by the children of the Victorian Age. We then built upon this learning through our trip to the Beamish Open Air Museum.
