Topic this term - Peasants, Princes & Pestilence

 

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly 'Great Pestilence' is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country!

 

Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body.

 

And if you smell a rat, my friend - get out of there!

Pre-learning shout out!

 

This week, it would be advantageous for your child to have a basic understanding of:

  • The effect of air resistance and friction as forces.
  • How to measure the volume of a shape. How to apply this to capacity of liquid.
  • The features of writing a speech and what needs to be included. The language that would be used for this.
  • Revise any prior Spanish teaching from Year 5 and previous years.

Term 5 Learning

 

Let's travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings.

 

Find out about life on the river's fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture.

 

Unravel the secrets and ancient tombs, using historical sources and age-old artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods! Make yourself a nemes and you'll really look the part!

 

Become an apprentice and work for Ramose; he's the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife.

 

Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt - who knows what treasures you will find?
