Our new topic is Ancient Egypt. As part of our home learning, we will be exploring a range of aspects of life in Ancient Egypt, including: The River Nile, Egyptian Pharaohs and Gods, the pyramids, Egyptian burials, hieroglyphics and mummies. We always aim to follow the children’s lines of enquiries when starting a new topic. If there is anything specific your child would like to learn about Ancient Egypt, please do get in touch via our class email, firstname.lastname@example.org
During our home learning, we will be revising key maths skills and prior learning, starting with methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as related number facts and use of the inverse.
Our Science topic is Earth and Space. Keep an eye on your weekly home learning grids and on the weblinks section of this page for Science learning ideas.
Try to make sure you are getting at least 30 minutes exercise a day to keep you fit and healthy. This can include going for a walk or bike ride around where you live, as well as home workouts such as PE with Joe, dance classes or online yoga classes (see links below).
Class 13 Home Learning
Home learning grids can now be found at the bottom of this page. There will be a new one every Monday. We know lots of you are busy learning new skills or picking up old ones, such as gardening, baking or learning to play an instrument. We'd love to hear about these things too!

Please continue to support your child's progress in reading by hearing them read every day and asking questions about what they have read. Reading to your child also continues to be important in year 5 as it can play a huge role in developing understanding and building on vocabulary by enabling children to access more sophisticated texts.
