Hi all! My name is Miss Gregory and I am privileged to be the new Year 5 class teacher at Huncoat Primary School. This half term we are going to be studying 'The war and witches of Lancashire'. Our BIG question focus is 'Who really won the war of the roses?' . During our topic lessons, we are going to be enquiring about the Pendle witches, researching them and understanding the chronology of history. Our key person is Alice Nutter (one of the Pendle witches). We are going to be researching her and why she is relevant in modern day society. Year 5 are going to be linking this topic to 'The war of the roses' and the children are going to be ordering events, organising information and linking their knowledge together to answer our big question. In English this half term we are focusing on 'Legends'. We are going to be reading 'Outlaw' by Michael Morpurgo as our class novel as well as studying 'Beowulf in our Literacy lessons. In Religious Education, Christianity is the religion we are studying this half term. We are going to be focusing on God and our investigation question is 'Why is it sometimes difficult to do the right thing?'. We are going to be analysing the Christian faith and the Lords prayer. We are going to be studying what Christians believe is the 'truth' and how there can be different types of truth. Below you can find some of our knowledge organisers.
