On this page we will share with you what we will be learning, exploring and all of the fun we have in Years 5 and 6.

Happy New Year! We can't believe we are already in the Spring Term, it is going to be jam packed full of learning and fun.

 

English

In English, we are reading a fabulous text called Arthur and the Golden Rope by Jon Todd-Stanton. Imagine a vault so cavernous that it could contain all the world's greatest treasures and relics, from mummified remains of ancient monarchs to glistening swords brandished by legendary warriors. Who could be in charge of such a vault and how did he come into possession of such a unique collection? Who is...Professor Brownstone?

 

We will be creating our own settings, heroes and villians and write our very own myth! How exciting?

 

 

Maths

During Spring term, there will be a big emphasis on the fractions, decimals, percentages and measures. Our children will be converting fractions, decimals and percentages, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, finding fractions of amounts and equivalent fractions. In measures, our children will be learning about the units of measure in length, weight and mass, they will be consolidating their calculating through measure as well as enjoying hands on measuring activities! It will be vitally important that your child has a good grasp of times tables facts this term in order for them to access the Year 5 and 6 curriculum.   

As always, we will be focusing on the children securing key fluency skills before challenging themselves with problem solving and reasoning challenges.

Science

In Science we will be learning all about electricity, the history and what electricity is and how it is used. The children will be investigating what makes a strong circuit, learning the components and what their role is, planning investigations ensuring they are a fair test, identifying their variables and what they will change or keep the same. Look out for our investigation pictures on social media!

 

Electric Circuits: Components, Types, and Related Concepts

 

Wider Curriculum

Across other areas of the curriculum we will be learning about The Mayans in History, finding out about their culture and beliefs. We can't wait to try and cook and write using Mayan techniques!
