Year 5 and 6 Curriculum 

                  Learning Challenge Curriculum – ‘Invaders = sea-faring savages?’

The first few lessons will involve us completing our geography learning about rainforests and then we will move onto our first history topic of the year. We will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. As part of this challenge we will be visiting Jorvilk to learn about battles, clothing and medieval medicines. Our key challenge questions for this history unit are:

  • Who were these invaders of Britain and what was important to them?
  • What evidence do we have that they were here in the first place?
  • Law and order – how did it work and how is it different now?
  • What did these invaders believe in and has it impacted on us today?
  • Can you create a settlement that these invaders lived in?



In Year 5, we will be continuing with our space topic and then we will move onto ‘What will I look like in 2070?’ We will focus on the human body, considering and discussing our different stages of growth (including puberty). As well as that, we will learn about the effects of diet, smoking, alcohol and drugs on our bodies. A letter will be coming home about these sessions.

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. The children will also be set a small project based on their ‘Learning Challenge’ theme.
