Year 5 and 6 Curriculum 

                          Learning Challenge Curriculum – ‘Could we survive without rainforests?’

We will be continuing our South America learning challenge this half term and gradually moving on to investigate rainforests. We will be exploring: 

Where are the rainforests and what are their main features? 

How have humans impacted on the rainforest? 

What have rainforests got to do with Fairtrade? 

What is the most amazing animal in the rainforest? 

Can we create a rainforest collage to summarise our learning?

Science

In Year 5, we will be continuing with our forces topic and then moving onto ‘Will you ever have a holiday on the moon?’ The very exciting unit will involve us looking far out into space at the Earth and the Moon. We will explore the distances from Earth to the Sun and Moon, as well as their differing sizes. We will also be investigating the relationships between the Earth, Sun and Moon.

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