Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 5 Page


Welcome to the Pallister Park Y5 page!

This term we will be covering:

Over the next six weeks, year 5 will be exploring the exciting civilization of Ancient Egypt: Learning about the young King Tut, translating hieroglyphs and acting as historians to uncover the mysteries of life in 2000BC. During English we will be writing portal stories and instructional text on just how and why mummies were such an important part of Egyptian culture.

After half term, the children will take on the topic of ‘Beast Creator.’ A unit which looks at the way humans and animals co-exist on our planet. We will be creating documentaries in the style of David Attenborough and researching the fascinating creatures that creep, crawl, walk and talk on our planet. During this topic, we will also think about important environmental factors that are currently effecting the world we live in.



Resources to access at home:

Whilst we will be covering many aspects of life in Ancient Egypt, it would be really useful if children took some time to research parts of this famous historical period themselves; From food to fashion, Princes to Pyramids and Mummies to Money. Any additional knowledge will be incredibly beneficial to learning.

We will try and demonstrate the variety of local habitats where animals exist during our Beast Creator topic but your child’s learning will certainly be enriched by visiting local places of interest:
Flatts Lane Park, Guisborough Forest, Saltburn/Redcar etc. all have a fantastic range of educational experiences to discover.

Some Y5 children will be competing in both the local swimming gala and basketball competition this half term.

Swimming will take place after half term.

All other additional clubs continue as normal.




We do not set weekly homework for your child in Year 5, however we encourage them to read as regularly as possible.

Reading Plus: This is an essential tool to help your children improve their reading and comprehension skills. If children cannot access the program at home, they can do so at Book and Bagel

Times Table Rockstars: Improve knowledge and speed of all multiplication tables.

Spellings: Please ensure your children practice their spellings regularly.

Most importantly, try and encourage a love of reading by sharing stories with your children on a daily basis
