Autumn 2

Year 5 Autumn 2 Curriculum Snapshot

"We have found learning about crime and punishment really interesting because we did not realise that there were different punishments for different time periods. We enjoyed writing a diary entry in role because it gave us an opportunity to get into someone else’s shoes and write about what they did wrong. We liked learning how to create a mindmap as we thought they were fun but also educational. We enjoyed reading The Highwayman because it is not a story we would usually choose to read."
