Year 5

Mr Dunnigan and Mrs Watson
Welcome back to year 5. Hope you’ve had a great Christmas. This half term we are going to be exploring the mysteries of Ancient life in Egypt, embarking upon life along the banks of the river Nile and the fascinating culture within this time period. In RE we’re going to be learning about significant women in the Bible. In Computing we are going to be making our own games using Scratch and PE we’re going to be doing Netball. Lots of exciting things to look forward to!
Remember… year 5 are no longer going swimming on Friday.
