Year 5


It's All Greek to Me!

The history focus will be studying Ancient Greece. The children will study where this period fits into history, what schooling was like in those times, what the Ancient Greeks have done for us and experience democracy through debating. The work will be brought to life with the children participating in a Who dunnit mystery and in a Greek Day with different activities!


During this term the children will be exploring recounts and reports based around our history topic. They will also be studying the picture book ‘Tuesday’ where they will have the opportunity to write newspaper reports and police interviews. In addition, the children will also be required to write their own myth having studied a range of them across the term.


The focus of our Design and Technology project this term is cam toys. The children will first evaluate a range of toys. Following this they will be provided with a design brief to design and make their own cam toy ensuring they follow a set of given criteria.
