Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Groovy Greeks

Ancient Greek civilisations, Athens vs Sparta and life for a child during Ancient Greece are just a few of the things year 5 will be learning about in History during the summer term. We will also research and explore the human and physical features of Greece in geography and create our own persuasive travel brochures. As well as designing and making our own Greek vases out of modelling clay in art.

In English, we will be reading ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’ by Maz Evans, a brilliantly fun book linked to Ancient Greek Gods. We will be using this as inspiration to write our own narratives, as well as creating our own poetry.

Year 5 will learn about evolution during science including inheritance, adaptation and natural selection.

We are really enjoying our P.E sessions with the sports coach every Tuesday, this half term we are practising and developing our cricket skills!

Books we are currently reading are ‘Who let the Gods out?’ by Maz Evans and ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cotrell-Boyce.
