St Joseph the Worker

Catholic Primary School

Year 5

Following our in-depth and very enjoyable study of Ancient Egypt in the Autumn term, Class 5 are looking forward to learning about the history, geography, literature and culture of Greece. They are particularly excited about mythical heroes,gods and creatures, about reading, and writing their own Greek myths.

To accompany this topic, in Music the children have been learning and performing songs based on the story of Troy and the Trojan horse. As the weather becomes brighter and warmer, our Science topic will look at life cycles in plants and animals and we await the arrival of our own caterpillars, which we hope to raise and observe their transformation into butterflies!

Swimming lessons have begun and in other areas of the curriculum, pupils are learning hockey skills in PE, Graphical modelling in Computing, and bread-making in Design Technology.
