Welcome to Year 5 - Saturn Class

This term we are travelling back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. The children will learn about life along the Nile, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. They will develop enquiry skills by using historical sources to ask questions and speculate answers. Pupils will learn about the human and physical features of the river Nile and use this skill to draw a sketch map. Alongside this, the children will learn about the myth of Isis and Osiris and write their own version in the form of a play script. They will then read and analyse The Egyptian Cinderella and use this to write an Egyptian version of their chosen traditional tale.
