Welcome Back to School Year 5.
Escape the Labyrinth
This topic is all about Ancient Greece and we will be delving into the history and exploring the Greek Gods and Goddesses, studying ancient art work including patterns and sculpture associated with the era. The children will take part in a Greek themed day, where they will learn about Greek music, singing and traditional dances. The children will also taste Greek food and make a laurel leaf headdress.
In English, we will be reading ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’ which links with our current topic. We will also be reading about lots of the favourite Greek Mythology such as – Pandora’s Box, Medusa, Theseus and the Minotaur. They will be learning how to use description in their writing to create tension and imagery. They will have many opportunities to publish their work.
Towards the end of the term, we will be focusing on poetry.
In Mathematics we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and Roman Numerals. We will continue the times tables practise alongside weekly arithmetic and key skills.
