Chilton Primary School

Learn with passion to live with purpose

Sycamore Class Year 5

Welcome to Sycamore Class! There are 29 wonderful children in our class. Our teachers are Mrs Watson and Miss Compton.


Term 2- How can we make the most of where we live?


Welcome back! This term we will develop our Geography fieldwork skills by exploring our local area. We will explore all things Chilton, using our map-reading skills to distinguish our location and surrounding features, before becoming cartographers and making our own maps relevant to our studies. We will use newly acquired geographical vocabulary to describe our local area and lead our peers on walks through it. With our new-found knowledge each session, we will be asking ourselves ‘How can we make the most of where we live?’.

Term 1- Was Greek democracy a success?

Welcome back to school and to a brand-new school year. This term we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks, considering what democracy looked like then and comparing it to the modern day. 


In our topic lessons, we will investigate what democracy is, what it looked like in Ancient Greece and who did and did not have a voice. We will then compare it with today. This term, we will explore other legacies of Ancient Greece such as architecture, sport and language.
