Year 5 & 6

Welcome to our learning in Year 5 & 6 - Autumn 1 and 2


Welcome back to the new school year – the last in primary school for our Year 6s!  Hoping that secondary visits and preparations are going well…

This term, and until Christmas, our topic on the top floor is World War 2, and we will be completely immersed in learning about every aspect of this period in history.  History will be looking at the history of the war, and in geography we will learn about the axis and the allies and how the war affected different countries across the world.

For Literacy, we will be reading Rose Blanche, by Ian McEwan, and creating our own suspense-filled chapters based on the story.  We will also be reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, by John Boyne, and producing work based around the novel.

After the half term holiday, we will be going on a trip to the Imperial War Museum, where we will be able to learn more about the Second World War in a hands-on way.

In PE, we will be continuing with our Weekly Mile in the Pleasaunce, and we will also be doing circuit training for indoor PE, as well as ball skills for outdoor PE – we will have some very fit children by the end of the term!
