Life As We Know It
This half term our theme is: Life As We Know It.
Science will be our leading focus—we will investigate properties of materials, changes of state, evolution and rocks and soils. We will also learn about rivers and the water cycle.
We will go on a trip to Lyme Regis to put our learning into practice in a fossil walk and have a chance to take photos to inspire our painting in the style of Seurat or Leonardo da Vinci.
If you have any skills or knowledge that could enhance our learning, please speak to a member of the Year 5 / 6 team. We would love you to be involved!
Year 5 / 6 Wow Days
As part of work covering the Ancient Greeks, Year 5 and 6 went on an airplane to Greece! We got stuck in a vortex and landed in Ancient Greece. Using the captain’s computer, we were able to investigate what life was like outside. Then we were told the Greek myth Icarus: The boy who flew too high. King Minos burst into the classroom hunting Daedalus. After we interviewed him, he asked us to design him a new labyrinth. We then designed a new creature to place into the labyrinth.
Have a look at our character descriptions. We considered how to use a range of descriptive features in our writing.
