Year 5


For our final theme, Year 5 children will be exploring the impact of Ancient Greece on the Western world today!  Starting with a grisly murder mystery in the shadow of the Olympics, children will compare life in different Greek states and consider Greek ways of law, democracy as well as all the amazing Myths and Legends that form part of the culture...


In English, children will be studying the epic poems the Iliad and Odyssey by Homer whilst a DT project will see the children thinking like the Greek inventors themselves! As the warmer weather continues, we will be enjoying Athletics worthy of any potential Greek warrior!  For more information please see the Curriculum umbrella link below.


Our amazing websites created by Year 5 are here.
