History and Geography

History

Children will have their history topic during the first half term in school. The class will be looking at the Vikings. The class will be focusing on skills such as constructing the past, finding changes and developments and using reasoning skills to find cause and effect.

Geography

Year 5 will be finding out how settlements in Early Britain are similar and different in comparison to modern day Britain. The children will be looking at this in the half term leading up to Christmas. This topic has links to the history topic (types of settlements), as well as using locational knowledge to locate and name the countries and major cities in the UK.
