Year 5 Summer

Survival of the Best

How do we persevere when faced with challenging situations?

Concept of Resilience

‘How do we persevere when faced with challenging situations?’ is the key question that year five explore in the summer term. Through the Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasion of Britain, the children Summer 5investigate the concept of resilience, learning from historical society how they can persevere even when situations are challenging.
During the term, the children learn about what life was like in Anglo-Saxon and Viking times; geographically studying their native countries as well as their methods and reasons for the invasion of Britain. From this they take the value of resilience and apply it to their own lives through work with the Green Safe Star and science, in preparation for moving into year six, their final year at Ranvilles Junior School.
