Year 5 Autumn Term

Year 5 Autumn Term 1

Food for Thought

 A predominantly design and technology based project

Children will be learning where our food comes from, looking at the journey of bread from seed to store.  We will be taste testing and evaluating a variety of savoury foods and making our own bread, learning about hygiene and safety in the kitchen along the way.  In science we will be investigating the properties of different materials and exploring reversible and irreversible change.  Our art sessions will begin our study of different well known artists and we will be developing our pencil skills to create a fruit still life picture.

To support this project the children will be visiting the local Morrisons at Bramley to learn a little more.

Ancient Greeks

 A predominantly history based project

 In this topic we will be focusing on empires and democracy; learning how democracy worked in Ancient Greece and comparing it to modern political systems.  We will explore the Ancient Greek Olympics and use sources such as art to learn from the past.  Finally, we will investigate both The Battle of Marathon and The Trojan War, learning how the past is constructed from a range of sources.
