The latest Year 5 Learning Update!

In English we have been creating non chronological reports about the Wind rush – they are amazing. We have used our research and knowledge of Topic lessons so far.

In Maths, we have been exploring all things, shape.

In Science, this term is all about materials. We have been exploring the work of a well-known American chemist – Stephanie Kwolek, who invented a very strong material called Kevlar.

In DT lessons we have been designing our very own carnival masks ahead of making them next week.

In Humanities, we have begun to explore the history of the Windrush and experiences faced by the people of the Windrush generation. We have been exploring misconceptions about black people in the UK before the Windrush and researching the geography of the Caribbean.

Summer Term Knowledge Organiser – 2023-2024

The latest Year 6 Learning Update!

In Year 6 this week, we have been revising our reading, SPaG and maths skills ahead of our SATs.
We’ve all been working really hard and can’t wait to show off what we know in our papers.
In Art/ DT, we designed the title page for our new topic ‘Surviviors’- we painted volvanoes as part of
our study of natural disasters.
In Humanities, we will be looking at how natural disasters have impacted history and why they
happen where they do geographically.
The year 6 team would like to remind you that there are 2 weeks until the children’s exams and
their attendance and punctuality is paramount.
