We hope you have had a restful half term break, after a short, but very busy half term. This half term we you will need to get ready to ask lots of questions and use your skills of historical enquiry.

We are travelling back to civilisation many years ago. This civilisation truly connected the world of trade and has had influences in modern society today. Let’s see if you can spot which modern day things we still use from this time period.

There is something awaiting your investigation when you arrive back at school. We need you to use all of your knowledge of different periods of history so far to help make a conclusion about where we might be. You will need to study the items carefully... what conclusions will you make?

You will be stretching your inquisitive learning muscle as we ask questions, draw connections and challenge ideas in this module.

Our golden thread will be: What is the impact of change?
We will discuss and develop our understanding of change and the impacts that it can have not only within a historical period, but over many years to come - even in today’s society.


A few routine reminders:

Learning Journals should be in school everyday as new information about reading books, trips, letters, homework and upcoming events will be added throughout the week.

So we can get our learning off to a quick start, please make sure your PE kit is in school everyday (take a look at our prospectus to double check what you need). Each item should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Please remember to label your child's uniform, water bottle and PE kit. PE kits will be sent home each week to be washed and returned on Monday. Year 5 should arrive at school between 08.50 and 09.00.
