Welcome to Year 5 where all the excitement happens. You will go back in time to explore Ancient Egypt and discover what it was like to live through the Black Death pandemic. Not only that, you will journey out into the far reaches of space and explore different forces here on Earth through our Scream Machine unit.  You will come face to face with super aphid eaters in our Beast Creator topic and experience the highs and lows of farming and land use in our Sow, Grow and Farm topic. We hope you are as excited as we are.

This half term our topic is Peasants, Princes and Pestilence.

Flea your fields, close your doors and pull up your drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly ‘Great Pestilence’ is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th Century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country!

Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battles and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales, and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body.                                 

And if you smell a rat, my friend – get out of there!


Please see below for home learning ideas. We would like you to choose one activity from the sheet and bring the work into school by the end of term.
