Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Welcome back! We have an exciting term ahead of us - including a trip to Weston Park to learn more about our first topic ‘Who were the Ancient Greeks?’ We will be exploring Ancient Greek culture and identifying how they have influenced us and the way we live.


In Term 2, we will be travelling through the solar system as well as investigating the moon and the sun.


As part of our topics, there will be two great homework project challenges:

Who were the Ancient Greeks? The lost city of Atlantis – historical fact, legend or myth? Complete research about the lost city of Atlantis and investigate whether you think it is historical fact, legend or myth.

Earth and Space: Produce a fact file about the planets or the phases of the moon.

For more information about homework this year, please see the curriculum newsletter.
