Autumn Term

This half term, Year 5 have been learning about World War 1 and World War 2. We have learned about rationing, evacuation and how women were involved in the war. We then had our World War 2 day, where a theatre company came to visit us​. The children were all involved in a play called, 'We'll Meet Again', where the children were playing evacuee school children. The children all learnt a lot from the visit. We have also been enjoying our class reading book 'War Horse' which has given us all a greater insight into World War 2.

Spring Term

This Spring Term, we are learning about the Ancient Kingdom of Benin and Egypt. We will be researching when these kingdoms existed, the way they lived and what their civilisation contributed to modern day life in terms of their art and inventions. We will also be learning about Africa as a whole and its very diverse cultures and environment.
