Welcome to Year 5!

Year 5 Legends!

(Miss Pickup)

This term we will be learning about Ancient Egypt as our history topic! We will travel back in time to discover what is was like to live as an Ancient Egyptian. Already, we have learned about the pyramids and even tried to build one for ourselves. We are currently researching and learning what an Ancient Egyptian house would look like and the importance of the River Nile. 

However, throughout the year we will also be learning about: Water, The Vicious Vikings and Mapping skills. We have lots to look forward to!

In Science we are learning all about forces.  What is a force? How can force change an object? What is gravity? Who discovered gravity? 

P.E. will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Please could the children bring an outdoor P.E. kit on Tuesday and shorts and T-shirts for gymnastics on Friday.

Home work for this year focuses on reading at home, learning and practicing all of the times tables so that we are fluent in them and completing the various homework projects we will be given throughout the year.
