This half term our theme is: Our World.
Science will be our leading focus—we will investigate the human body and how to keep it healthy, life cycles and reproduction and classification.
We will also be looking at different religions in the world and how people use symbolism and the arts to express religious viewpoints, as well as learning about Easter.
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.
