Year 5 – Into Africa

Through discovering the Secrets of the Sun King year 5 reveal the life of an ancient Egyptian and how they built a community. In Geography they look at the physical and human features of Africa and compare to other places studied. Our understanding of how we see and how shadows are formed in science help us to see this world more clearly and how we have developed as scientists over the years. Through our art we create our own set designs for some of our Egyptian suspense stories. As we close the topic our music leads us into an exploration of a range of genres.
