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 6, we will continue learning about electricity. We have learnt about different electrical components and the effects they can have when adapted on a circuit. We will be moving on to creating our own electrical products, working to a budget and hopefully building a final design successfully. After that, we will begin our next area of learning: ‘Can you bend light?’ We will first investigate how light travels, followed by researching about the eye and how we see objects.

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.
