 Theme-Led Curriculum: ‘WW2’

We will be carrying on our war themed learning this half term with a huge focus on remembrance and evacuation. This half term will see us developing our art and DT skills with investigating the artists Otto Dix and Henry Moore. To support the Royal British Legion, we will be completing an enterprise project in class, designing and making a poppy cushion to raise money to donate to the fabulous charity for remembrance.

Science

Year 6 will be building on their learning about the digestive system from Year 4 and discovering all about the circulatory system and our heart. We will be visited by Mrs Day to perform a dissection – a letter will be sent out about this. We will be completing plenty of experiments along the way to improve our scientific enquiry skills. This half term, we will be looking more at diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle and the impact our choices can have on relationships and our bodies.

Homework

All of the children in Year 5 and 6 will be given English and Maths homework weekly. This will include a variety of tasks, including spellings, to encourage the children to continue their learning at home. Children will be expected to complete at least three 20 minute readings per week; these must be signed by an adult at home to collect their stars.
