This term in Year Five



Connected Curriculum: For our first topic, the children will be looking into the lives and tales of 'Pharaohs'. They will delve into Ancient Egypt and look at how they used to live and what the role of a Pharaoh was in Egypt at that time. ART will feature throughout this unit, so children will use different techniques to create sketches of masks and Nemes.

Our PE days are...

If your child does not have appropriate kit in school then they will not be able to take part in P.E lessons.


Children should have an outdoor and indoor P.E kit. All t-shirts should be white, plimsoles should be worn for indoor P.E and trainers for outdoor. One type of shoe can not be used for both. 



As a year group we  will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Trust". Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a compassionate in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how  trustworthy they are at home do share this with us.
