Learning in Year 5 this half term:
Our main topic this half term is titled, ‘Pharaohs’ and focuses on the key aspects of Ancient Egypt: the famous River Nile, mummification, famous Pharaohs and of course, Tutankhamun. Our topic culminates in an Ancient Egypt exhibition put on by our year 5 and 6 pupils.
In writing, we begin by writing a non-chronological report on the famous Tutankhamun. Combining new and existing skills, pupils will draft and publish an informative, eye-catching report which will be showcased at our exhibition.
In our reading sessions, we will begin by developing our reading fluency. Ensuring we are reading with good pace, intonation and appreciating punctuation. Later in the half term, we will begin our class book titled: Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll.
In maths, we will be completing our unit on addition and subtraction before studying multiplication and division in detail.
The main religion we will continue to focus on this half term is ‘Christianity’, with our key question titled, ‘Was Jesus the Messiah?’ and the theme of incarnation running throughout.
Our topic combines a range of skills and subjects as we consider Ancient Egypt and the incredible civilisation which shaped the world. There will be links to all subjects.
