Theme-Led Curriculum

For this half term, year 5 will begin with exploring the world of Ancient Egypt. This is a topic that will see us research achievements from this era, investigate what daily life was like and learn about their beliefs. An important part of our history curriculum is to be able to make comparisons with modern life so we will be doing just that. We will be taking delivery of a treasure chest filled with artefacts for us to experience.


Year 5, this half term will explore: ‘Could you be the next CSI investigator?’ The unit will involve developing our investigational skills to find out about properties of materials (hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity and response to magnets).  We will also investigate reversible and irreversible changes (dissolving, evaporating and filtering).

All of the children in Year 5 and 6 will be given English and Maths homework weekly. This will include a variety of tasks, including spellings, to encourage the children to continue their learning at home. Children will be expected to complete at least three 20 minute readings per week.
