Year 5 Blog 2022/23

Welcome to the Year 5 Blog. Please read below to find out more about what we have been learning throughout the Autumn Term.

At the start of the term we launched our inquiry by discovering and learning about the landmarks of our fine city, Norwich. As part of our learning we used a range of books, leaflets and online materials to research facts about Norwich. In groups we chose the facts we wanted to share and created posters. After that we created a presentation and shared the information with the rest of the class. We enjoyed using our public speaking voices and being the audience for one another.

Year 5 Trip to Norwich

We went on a trip to Norwich to find out how George Skipper has influenced the architecture of Norwich. We visited Surrey House and the Royal Arcade and created sketches of the botanical tiles. We also went on the Hidden Streets Tour. This was exciting because we got to go underneath the modern day streets. We used our history skills to find out more about the past.

To complete the trip we stood at the top of Norwich Market and drew a map of the Norwich skyline and key landmarks. We really enjoyed eating our lunch on the Forum steps.
