Years 5/6

Autumn in Years 5 and 6

During the second half of the autumn term, Years 5 and 6 will continue to explore how ‘Arrivals and Departures’ have shaped our country. We have already learnt about Viking invasion, the struggle for the throne, the Battle of Hastings and how the arrival of people during these times impacted on settlements and culture in Britain. This half term we will  be researching and discussing more recent events, including the Windrush, current immigration and refugees. Our class novel is 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali, Q. Rauf. Within our writing lessons, we will be writing stories that see our main characters travel back in time. In Maths, we will continue be extending our understanding of multiplication and division before moving on to our first unit of fractions. In Science, we look forward to investigating forces. 


TIMES TABLES ROCK STAR BATTLE Tuesday 1st December to Friday 4th December. Anyone who has contributed to the score from the winning class will be rewarded Friday afternoon. Every point counts so practise, practise, practise! Good luck!
