Year 5/6

Welcome to Year 5/6's page!


Below you can find this term's knowledge organisers which show what the children will be learning about in each subject. 

Design and Technology Art Computing History Science Geography


This term we are learning about The Mayas. We will be using our enquiry skills to answer key questions in order to see what we - as historians - can learn from the sources of information left behind and how the past can be interpreted in many different ways. We will be investigating why we study them and learning about how they lived. In Science, we are learning about Light and Animals including humans.

Year 5/6 News

Each half term, the children will be given a project to complete as homework. This half term, I would like the children to research an area of our topic that particularly interests them.  The homework can be presented in numerous ways: some writing, art work, a diagram/model or as a presentation. The completed project will need to be uploaded onto SeeSaw or brought into school by the end of the term.
