During the final half term of the year, Year 5 will be learning all about Lancaster’s historic involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade. We will be visiting key places locally which will tell us more about this often overlooked, but important, History.

In English, we will be studying two important and historical texts: The Highwayman and Macbeth. Both were written hundreds of years ago and yet have stood the test of time.

We will also be exploring digital art and cooking in D&T.

It’s a jam-packed half term as always, let’s learn and have lots of fun!

Homework this half term is a local history trail which can be completed as a family during a weekend.
