Year 5 & 6

Welcome to our learning in Year 5 & 6 - Spring 1


Welcome to 2019 – we are looking forward to the days finally starting to get longer again over the coming weeks!

This term in Year 5 and 6, our topic is Which Decade Did it Best? – and we will be looking at each decade from the post-war 1950s until the current day.  For History, we will be looking at the advances in technology made during each decade, as well as learning about the politics, popular culture, and art.  We will also be looking at pop art, and creating our own work based on our choice of renowned pop artists – Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, etc.  Towards the end of the term we will be celebrating our learning with Decade Day, when we will come in dressed as if we have come from one of the decades we’ve learned about!

For Science, we will be learning about electricity, and exploring circuits; learning about why and how they work.  ICT will mainly involve research for subjects across the board, but we will also be using Book Creator to make slideshows of found images; for example, when creating surveys for Numeracy.  In Numeracy, we will be looking at data and statistics, as well as ratio and proportion, and will also learn revision skills.  We will also recap the learning from last term.

In Literacy, we have been reading The Landlady, by Roald Dahl, a creepy short story with a real cliffhanger of an ending.  We will be writing our own second chapters for this story, in the genre of horror.

PE will be dance; we will learn dances to music from each different decade, and will perform our learning as a class to the rest of the floor on Decade Day later in the term.  We will also be continuing with our Weekly Mile in the Pleasaunce.
