Class 5’s topic this term is the ancient Egyptians. The children will develop their knowledge of the ancient Egyptian civilisation through a range of informative and practical activities. We will be investigating the men and women who studied the kingdoms and exploring their discoveries. We will then look at some of the Pharaohs and the development of the pyramids, as well as the mythology that surrounded this early civilisation. We will also consider the role the Nile had in allowing this civilisation to flourish and examine daily life, comparing it to our own.
In Science, we will first be investigating light, developing knowledge of light, colour and shadow. We will then look at electricity. The children will design and market their very own festive lights decoration. They will use motors, switches, bulbs and buzzers to make their product stand out.
Class 5 consists of Year 5 and Year 6 children
