Autumn 2 is upon us as we have lots to look forward to in Year 5. This half term our topic focus is all about Ancient Egypt and we will be considering how their lives are different to ours today. In English, we will be focussing on ‘The Day of Ahmed’s Secret’. From this text we will be producing a balanced argument to weigh up the pros and cons of life as an Egyptian child and life as a child living in England. After this, we will be unpicking ‘The Wilderness War’ and creating poetry using figurative language. In Maths we will be focusing on shape, statistics, fractions, decimals and percentages and applying these to real life contexts and problems. This half-term our PE will include; gymnastics with a focus on balance and flight, whilst our invasion game focus will be Basketball and the skills required to play the game. We are also really excited about our other foundation subjects being taught, such as: French, Music, Computing, R.E, Art & D.T and PSHE. For more information and to see what we will be doing weekly, please refer to the half-termly planner below.
