This half-term we are continuing our topic of A Civilised Bunch.

Last half term, all of our reading, writing and history was based around ancient civilisations: the Ancient Egyptians, Indus Valley, Sumer and Shang Dynasty.


This half term, we will be continuing the adventure by focusing on the Egyptians in more detail. In our Horrible Histories week (Monday 4th March) we will be writing tomb raider stories.


Week 1, we will be having a short break from the Egyptians as we will be writing plastic pollution poems which are going to be displayed at the Romsey Green Fair on Saturday 9th March in the Romsey Methodist Church.


In science, we will be learning about life cycles of plants and animals. This will include us planting a variety of flowers and learning about how they grow and produce seeds.


Homework - We will now be setting Maths and English homework on Monday's and it must be handed in on the following Monday. This half term, all the Maths homework is on Matheletics. Please let us know if you need a reminder about your log on or paper copies.

We will mark the English homework together in class. If you loose your homework, copies can be found in the year 5 information page.
