Welcome to Year 5 Swallows

Welcome to Swallows class!

This term we will be investigating Ancient Egypt, the rise and fall of pharaohs and the importance of the Nile. We will aim to make connections with other river dependent civilisations and previous learning to build the big picture of the past - to support this, we will be having a visit from Hands on History. Our English work will either be linked directly to our history topic or our class text: The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.

Our science topic this term will be exploring states of matter. The children will be preparing and conducting investigations, making predictions, recording data and evaluating their work...all following the Empiribox programme. 

Our RE sessions shall be learning about the people of God; their relevance and significance to Christians.

Finally, the children spend lots of time exploring outdoor learning, taking every opportunity to explore our local environment and making the most of the fantastic new facilities the school has to offer. This term, the children will begin forest school.
