Year 5 Ancient Civilisations

Ask a Year 5 pupil what the legacies of Ancient Civilisations are and they could probably talk to you for a while!

Not only have the pupils covered Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, the Shang Dynasty and the Indus Valley, they have invented their own civilisations with styles of government, currency and architectural styles.

They have role-played characters from different socio-economic backgrounds in China in 1600BCE, decided who to ‘ostracise’ or ‘sacrifice’ from our classroom and discussed how Disney is influenced by thousands of years of history.

Here you can see a particularly detailed piece of work from Sophie 5W showing on a map many Ancient Civilisations with detailed captions.
