Welcome to Year 5

Our topics this summer:

National Parks

Ancient Egypt


The first half term, we will focus our learning on the significance of Dartmoor National Park. Through a study of National Parks in the UK and overseas, and a Dartmoor visit, we will discover the impact of designating public parks on human activity.


The second half term, we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. This period of history was a significant time for trade and engineering, and through an exciting study of the life of an Egyptian, we will discover what made the civilisation so remarkable and fascinating.


Literacy: to link to our topics on National Parks and Ancient Egypt, we will be producing persuasive writing to encourage tourists to the Dartmoor region, and creating writing based on the novel ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ by Emma Carroll.
