Year 5 Optional Weekly Projects

Week 1



London: History


This week, start learning about our capital city, London, by exploring its history! Each image below links to a strand of learning:


    1. Use the ‘London: Then and Now’ Powerpoint to make notes and learn new facts about our capital city’s history
    2. Use the ‘History of London Timeline’ activity sheet to practise your timeline skills – you may need to research further. Use ‘The History of London’ blank timeline to create your own finished timeline of London’s history.
    3. Use the ‘Further Research’ website to add to your notes. Once finished, think about what skills you can use to present this learning? Will you create a script for a radio programme, delving into London’s history and how it’s changed? Or maybe a story set during one of the time periods?
    4. Watch the ‘The Bridges that Built London’ documentary on YouTube to further your knowledge about the history of the the capital’s bridges. Which stands out as your favourite? Can you sketch your favourite bridge or EVEN attempt to make a small model of it?





Week 2

London: The Great Plague


This week, continue your learning about London’s history by exploring The Great Plague! Each image below links to a strand of learning:


  1. Use the ‘The Great Plague’ Powerpoint and the YouTube video to make notes and learn new facts
  2. Use the ‘The Great Plague Challenge’ activity cards to access lots of different activities to extend your learning on the topic.
  3. Use the ‘Further Research’ website to add to your notes. Think about what you know about Samuel Pepys and his diaries and letters. What would you write if you were in his situation? Use your presentation skills to create a diary entry if you lived through The Great Plague. Can you create a poster to break down what the symptoms are of the plague that would help to keep people alert? What do you think would happen if The Great Plague happened today?
  4. Practice SATs reading test can be found below – get back into the swing of working on your comprehension. Break this up or do it all in one go! Good luck 🙂


 Week 3


The Ancient Greeks


This week, start learning about The Ancient Greeks! Each image below links to a strand of learning:


  1. Use the ‘Who Were the Ancient Greeks?’ Powerpoint and the fact cards to make notes and learn new facts
  2. Use the ‘Timeline Ordering’ resource as well as the ‘Map of Europe’ to further your understanding of how the Ancient Greeks fit into world history and also where Greece is found among the other countries of Europe
  3. Use the ‘Further Research’ website to add to your notes. Explore what made the Ancient Greeks who they were and explore further the importance of their origins and culture. Could you imagine living during this time? What role would you have? Write a first person narrative, telling the story you live during this time. Create information leaflets as well as posters sharing what you have learnt. Become an EXPERT and make your own museum! The possibilities are ENDLESS!
  4. Lastly, read the first chapter of the ‘Time Travel Diaries – Adventures in Athens’ by Caroline Lawrence. Would you like to read more? What questions would you ask the author? Where do you see the story going next? We’d love to hear your thoughts!



Week 4


The Ancient Greeks: the Olympics


This week, continuing learning about The Ancient Greeks  and learn all about the Olympics! Each image below links to a strand of learning:


  1.  Read all about the Ancient Greek Olympics – where it all began! Make notes from the Powerpoint.
  2. Make contrasts between the Ancient and Modern Olympic Games using the Venn Diagram sheet and the ancient images found on Greek pots.
  3.  Use the ‘Further Research’ link to explore further how the very first games began. Watch the video and add to your notes. Could you write two contrasting diary entries or letters from the time; one from a man’s perspective and one from a woman’s perspective? How would they be different from one another? Would their outlook on the games be different and why?
  4.  Research the modern (summer) Olympic Games. Use the Top Trumps template below to create your own set of cards based on the countries that compete in the games. Research the country population, amount of medals won and other interesting statistics to compare and contrast to other competing countries. Finish the Top Trump card off with a coloured in sketch of the country’s flag at the top, and then you are ready to start playing! Take photos and tweet us your work!
