Year 5 2022-23

On our class page, you will find information about all aspects of our learning, including curriculum coverage, P.E days, homework, spellings and useful website links. Please check regularly for any special events, changes and reminders.


In Summer 2, our theme is 'Incredible Egyptians,' a history focus exploring the way of life, beliefs and rituals of Ancient Egypt.  We will use timelines to understand the chronology and investigate different sources of evidence to find out information.

In Art, we will be exploring Ancient Egyptian designs on clothes, tomb-paintings and death masks,  and developing ideas for our own pharaoh-style mask. 

Also this half-term, the whole class are lucky to be receiving weekly ukulele lessons by a musician!
