Welcome to Year 5! This is your first year in Upper Key Stage 2 and will be filled with new challenges and learning experiences. Mr Imeson is your class teacher and the class TA is Miss Wignall.

In our autumn term, we will be learning exploring the wonders of Ancient Egypt. We will exploring the importance of the river Nile and how ancient Egyptians used the river for their livelihood. We will also be exploring the contents of Tutankhamun's tomb and the stories we can learn from his possessions.

In science we are exploring how the different cellestial bodies in our solar system interact with each other. In art, our topic will be focussing on drawing skills and how this can be applied to draw faces of different expressions. In DT, We will be working together to analyse and design a functioning bridge with the specific parts to make it withstand the appropriate weight! In maths, we are exploring the place value of larger numbers up to 1,000,000. Our guided reading text explores the legendary story of Charlie and the chocolate factory written by famous author Roald Dahl.
