Year 5 Term 3

Ancient Civilisations

This term, our learning journey will take us back in time to take a look at the ancient civilisations of the Indus Valley and Ancient Egypt.

Teaming up with Year 6, we will explore Pharaohs and Pyramids, Hieroglyphics, take a journey down the River Nile and discover how people lived all those years ago. To finish our topic off, we will delve deep into how the era came to an end. 

In English, the children will be expanding their skills of writing for purpose and precising longer passages of writing through non-chronological report writing, as well as broadening their understanding of tone and sentence structure whilst writing newspaper reports. All of this will be supported and enriched by the novel 'The Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll. The term will be rounded off with some descriptive writing, focusing on character and setting.
