Welcome to Year 5. It is great to see you here!

My name is Miss Lewis and I am the class teacher for year 5. I work alongside my class TA, Mrs Smadi. On this page you will find some information about the different things that we do in Year 5.

Autumn 1:

This half term’s topic is The Ancient Egyptians. We will be learning all about life in ancient Egypt, Mummification, the famous Pharaohs as well as the Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. We will also be creating an adventure story based on an adventure in an Ancient Egyptian tomb to link in our Literacy work as well as reading the book Kensuke’s Kingdom in Guided Reading.

We have PE on Wednesday afternoons, please make sure that you wear your PE kit to school and have weather appropriate clothing and suitable shoes – most sessions will be outside.

Spring 1:

This half terms topic is titled Ancient Greece. We will be learning about life in Ancient Greece as well as using a lot of our oracy skills to hold debates like they did during these times.
