Year 5



In the Spring term, the year 5 students had a chance to be historians. In this topic, we were looking at the Ancient Greeks. Each lesson students had the opportunity to look at primary sources and from this use their inference skills to assess what this source told them about the Ancient Greeks as a civilisation.  They thoroughly enjoyed acting out the Battle of Marathon and deciding which Ancient city (Sparta or Athens) would be the best to live.  We compared democracy in this time to democracy now and compared the role of women. Finally children were able to use all this knowledge to infer why Athens was such a powerful city during this time.



Year 5 complete their history topics in the Spring and Summer terms.
