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.
This term we are learning about the Crime and Punishment through the ages. We will be investigating what we - as historians - can learn from the sources of information left behind and how the past has shaped our justice system today. We will be learning about Still Life in Art. In Design and Technology, we will be making musical instruments and in Science, we are learning about Electricity and Evolution and Inheritance.
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 the Ancient Egyptian Civilisation 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 by the end of the half term.
