During the Spring Term Year 5 will study The Ancient Egyptians and learning across most subjects will be linked and/or related to the Life in Ancient Egypt. Our new class English novel ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ is based around the life of King Tutankhamen.  

In History, Geography Art and DT, we will study the following areas: 


  • Locating Egypt on a world map and knowing which continent it belongs to and which countries it is close to. 
  • Learn about modern Egyptian tourism and culture. 
  • Placing Ancient Egypt on a World History timeline, and knowing what happened in history before and after this period. 
  • Learning about Egyptian landscape including a study of The River Nile. 
  • Finding out about the life of King Tutankhamen and the discovery of his tomb. 
  • Understanding the importance of artefacts in helping us find out about the past. 
  • Find out about ways of life in Ancient Egypt. 
  • Learn about Egyptian tombs, pyramids and burial sites. 


In addition we will also study the following areas:


  • The life and works of Frida Kahlo, combining portrait and collage. 
  • Practise sketching buildings, rivers, pathways and roads within landscape pencil drawings. 
  • Design, construct and evaluate a shelter. 
  • Investigate pulleys and gears within mechanical systems.
