Year 5

Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to 5KH and 5RM. In Year 5 there are people who help you with your learning – Ms. Hodgson, Mrs. McDermott and Miss. Baines.

Our topic is the Ancient Greeks. In this topic, we will learn how Ancient Greece fits into world history and how Ancient Greek society was organized. We will learn about The Battle of Troy, soldiers and weaponry. Moving on from this Year 5 will research the layout of Greek houses and the activities that took place in them and we will end with a debate about an aspect of the topic.

In English we will be concentrating on Greek myths. We will read them and magpie language from them to use in our own extended writing.

Children will be planning, writing, editing and redrafting their own narrative based on the Greek myths. They will be creating their own character to include in the stories.

During the unit, children will be concentrating on using dialogue to progress the action and developing cohesion within the piece.
