Year 5

Croeso i fflwyddyn 5! Welcome to Year 5!


Welcome to our Year Five webpage.

Please visit regularly to keep up to date with all our year group's news.

Our new Topic - Pharaohs


We are looking forward to our new topic which will take us back in time to the time of the Pharaohs and the land of Ancient Egypt.


We will be learning about the timeline of the pharaohs, why and how their pyramids were built and the treasures discovered in one of their tombs. We will find out about ancient hieroglyphs and why mummies were a part of burial rites.  We will discover the reasons why the River Nile has been important to the people of Egypt for thousands of years and look closely at the landscape of Egypt and its place in the world.






Please find below a link to year 5's Egyptian homework grid. 

There is also a Key Stage 2 grid of ideas for pupils and a list of story starters to use whilst they are at home.
