Year 5



Welcome back to school!

This term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians - finding out how and why they built the pyramids, who they were and the impact Ancient Civilisations had. We will learn to use hieroglyphics on homemade papyrus paper and build our own pyramids (with secret chambers) and Egyptian death masks. With all this alongside our trip to the Leeds City Museum we'll be experts on mummification before you know it!

Get your reading goggles on as we explore texts linked to Ancient Egypt - fiction and non fiction. We will be reading 'Secrets of the Sun King' as a class reader which will give us an opportunity  to enjoy reading together and find out more about the secrets of the Ancient Egyptian civilisation.



We will be finding out about Changes and Properties of Materials in science. 

In maths this term we are focusing on place value and number.

Homework will be set every week and will include; reading, times tables practise, maths, spellings and comprehension.  On occasion we might set longer term projects instead.

Work on remembering your times tables you can use TTRS or other online games.
