Year 5 2018/19

Hello and welcome to Y5!

The teachers this year are Mr Sandrey and Mr Matthews. Between Monday and Wednesday we are fortunate to have extra support from the very talented Mrs Walker. Mrs Shutt and Miss Hale are our wonderful teaching assistants.

Our P.E. days are Thursday and Friday and we would like children to have both indoor and outdoor kits in school as we will be working outside as often as the weather permits.

Autumn 1 Term

This term, the eager, brave learners and adventurers of Year 5 are travelling back in time to Ancient Greece. Whilst sunning themselves in Ancient Greece, they will witness the birth of modern democracy and how it has influenced the political system in the United Kingdom.

As well as that, they will voyage across Europe by discovering the origins of the Ancient Greek Empire, how it expanded and ultimately how it fell. Not only that, they will be delving deep into the family problems present on Mount Olympus as they become more familiar with the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses.

Later in the term, these intrepid voyagers will also become Ancient Greeks for the day, taking lessons from the Ancient Greeks themselves before indulging in a Greek feast fit for mighty Zeus himself.
