Hall Green Junior School

School re-opens on Monday 6 September.

Year 5

Welcome back!

We hope you have enjoyed the sunshine during your holidays and are ready to step back in time for our final module. Where has the time flown- how is it the last half term of Year 5?

This half term we are going to be taking a trip to the past, to investigate a period very different to today. We will be exploring the history of royals and how they have changed laws to make England what it is today. In school, we will begin by focusing on one royal family in particular, who came to power in England in 1485. You will then be set a homework task to research a King or Queen which you will use to create a Key Note presentation in School.

We will discuss some very interesting individuals from this period too. One individual is well known for drastically changing the laws in England to benefit his needs and forcing people to change their religion. This individual also has a phrase which summarises how he treated his wives! Can you guess who the phrase below belongs to?
‘divorced, beheaded, died... divorced, beheaded, survived’

We’re going on a trip! This half term we are fortunate enough to visit a local house linked to our module. It looks quite different to houses we generally see around Hall Green and inside holds lots of articles which will help us to understand more about the past. We will be taking part in exciting activities during our session and will help us to stretch our inquisitive Learning Muscle.


This module links closely with our Core Skills of Lifelong Learning and Being a Good Citizen.

This half term we will continue to read ‘My Life as a Cat’ by Carlie Sorosiak, as well as a variety of poetry.


Please remember to label your child's uniform, water bottle and PE kit. PE kits will be sent home each week to be washed and returned on Monday. Year 5 should arrive at school between 08.50 and 09.00.
