Year 5

Spring Term

This term our theme is Ancient Greece. We will be learning about the major historical events of the time. To conclude our studies we will hold an Ancient Greek Day.

Our English is very much linked to the topic. We will be writing mock CVs for a god of our choice. We will be writing our own Ancient Greek myths. We will write newspaper reports using the siege of Troy as our inspiration. We will also learn about the origins of theatre and write our own playscripts.

In art and design, we will develop our portrait and figure drawing skills. We will make and decorate Ancient Greek style pots.

Our first scientific study will be of our solar system. In the second half of the term, we will study the life cycles of plants.

In Mathematics, a core element for the term will be developing the understanding of fractions. Arithmetic skills and tables are a continuous focus.

Computing this term will develop coding skills using Lego WeDo and Scratch.

PE will be gymnastics, cricket and team building skills.
