Year 5

Groovy Greeks

Our main topic in the Autumn term is ‘Groovy Greeks’, where we study Greek life and their

 achievements and their influence on the western world.

Through our History, Geography and English lessons, children will look at everyday life; they will research who the gods were that the Greeks used to worship, Greek architecture, the theatre and the Arts, famous Greeks and the Olympics. In computing, we will be improving our skills in using Microsoft Word and creating our own research files about Greek food. We will also be learning about computer systems and networks. In Science, we will be learning about forces, gravity and the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction.


After half term, we will be continuing our Ancient Greek topic, linking this again with a variety of subjects. In Science, we will focus on finding out about the Earth, Sun and our Moon. We will also learn about our solar system and the conditions on other planets. We will rise to the challenge of designing and making our very own battery powered Mars Rovers in DT; wish us luck.
