Welcome to the Year 5 area! The Year 5 teachers this year are Miss Sheehan, Miss Matar and Mr Byrne.
This term we will be focusing on the Romans. We will learn about the way they lived- including their clothes, diet and daily routines, their gods and their goddesses. We will learn about their influence, battles, defeats and successes through our Literacy and Art lessons. Don’t forget- We are having a Roman Day workshop on Friday 15th September in the hall! The children will experience a day in the life of a true Roman.
This term will also be spent focusing on Numbers and Place Value in Maths, which will provide us with the perfect opportunity to incorporate the Roman numerals.
