Year 5 & 6

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


A massive welcome onto the top floor for everyone just starting Year 5 – as one child said today, you’ll never need to get used to a new floor in Halstow again.  And welcome back to our new Year 6s.

This term in Year 5 and 6 our topic is Out of this World, and we will be looking at anything related to outer space.

Later in the term, we will be taking a trip to the Royal Observatory, where we will learn more about our solar system and space in general.

In Art, we will be looking at Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and producing our own recreations of the painting using various different media.  We will also use this as the focus for our Literacy; we will create a piece of tension building writing imagining ourselves as within one of the houses depicted in the painting.

In Numeracy, we will begin the year by recapping and revising the four operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication), and share and discuss methods.

In PE, we will be looking at fitness and stamina; we will be making circuits of various activities and timing ourselves participating in each exercise.  We will also be continuing with our weekly mile in the Pleasaunce, this year on a Wednesday.
