Hi all! My name is Miss Gregory and I am the Year 5 teacher at Huncoat Primary School. Spring term is such an exciting term for Year 5 and we are going to be learning about some fantastic topics. During the first half term we are going to be studying 'Ancient Greece' in our History topic. Our BIG QUESTION for this topic is 'What did the Ancient Greeks do for us today?'. We are going to be focusing on enquiry, chronology and researching and comparing the Ancient Greek era to 2022. In our Science lessons this half term we are going to be looking at 'Properties of materials'. We are going to be investigating electrical conductors and insulators, we are going to be designing a dog coat based on material properties and we are going to be looking at thermal insulators and how they are used in everyday life. This will be great fun! Our key focus person this half term is the Greek Philosopher 'Aristotle'. He relates to our English topic 'Ancient Greek Myths' and 'Non-chronological reports on the Ancient Greeks'. We are going to be exploring a range of Greek Myths, creating our own Mythical creatures and we are going to be writing our own comic style version of a Greek Myth. In R.E this half term we are going to be studying the religion 'Hinduism'. our BIG QUESTION is going to be 'What do Hindus learn from the stories of Krishna?'. We are going to be studying the different Hindu Gods, the religious traditions such as Diwali and we are going to be thinking and guidance and how Hindu Gods guide them to live a good life. In Art and Design this half term we are going to be exploring Greek Patterns and Repetition. We are going to be using different drawing and printing techniques to create our own Greek Patterns.
