Year 5 & 6

Welcome to our learning in Year 5 & 6 - Autumn 2


Welcome back to the top floor for the Christmas term.  Darker evenings and colder nights ahead!

This term in Year 5 and 6 our topic is still Out of this World, but this term we will be learning about things a bit closer to home with looking at planet Earth.  We will be learning about living things and their habitats; in Science we will look at the life cycles of both insects and amphibians, and in Geography we will learn about the water cycle, and about mountains and volcanoes.

We will also be looking at performance poets, like Michael Rosen.

We will be learning about Fairtrade; what that means and how it is implemented, and will be writing persuasive letters to supermarkets persuading them to stock fairtrade goods.  For ICT we will be creating fairtrade iMovies, and designing and making fairtrade cereal boxes for DT.


In Numeracy, we will be learning about fractions, length, weight, perimeter and 3D shapes as well as looking at written methods of addition and subtraction.

Year 5’s and 6’s theme for International Week is Mexico – we will be learning about the country as well as some Mexican dance.  PE this term will be football, as well as continuing with our weekly run.

This term will also be full of rehearsals – we will be doing a musical medley for this year’s Christmas concert.
