Our topic this term

This term, our topic will be based on the question 'Who were the Ancient Egyptians?'. We will delve into their world and become history detectives. We will find out all about where Egypt is located in the world, how the Ancient Egyptians lived their daily lives, who they worshipped and the gruesome ritual of mummification! As part of our topic, we will also visit Leeds City Museum to see an actual mummy, and to become archaeologists for the day.

Very important reminders for Year 5:

* It is exceptionally important that your child reads at least 3 times a week, and that this is noted in their journal. Reading will be a very big part of Year 5 and it is important that your child continues the development of their skills at home.

* Spellings will be given out every Friday and your child will be tested on those spellings on a Wednesday. It is vital that your child practises these, so they can begin to use them in their work.

* PE will take place every Wednesday. However, please make sure your child's PE kit is in school from Monday to Friday as, due to unforeseen circumstances, PE day can sometimes change.

* Our creative homework grid is below. As you know, creative homework is optional, however, it is fantastic to see the high levels of effort that goes into this at home, so please try and complete them. Homework will be given out every Friday and is expected to be returned on the following Wednesday. Each week your child will receive a piece of Maths or English homework to complete.
