Years 5 & 6

Time Traveller

Welcome back to the second half of our spring term, we can’t wait to see you all back in school very soon! This half term our topic is Time Travellers where we will be learning about lots of very exciting things.

In Science, we will be revisiting our learning about inheritance and adaptation and considering which of our features are inherited and acquired. We will be thinking about how people change and develop over time within their own lives and also revisiting and building on our work on electricity.

In DT we will be learning about different mechanisms in order to design and make our own time machine. We already know how creative you are so we are very much looking forward to seeing the designs from all of you budding inventors!

Throughout this topic, our focus will be Geography where we will be learning all about the essentials things people need to survive in different biomes, water distribution around the world and more about natural resources.

We will continue to keep active and complete two PE sessions each week- continue to share your successes with us while we are still learning from home.

We will also be working on a range of French, Music and Computing activities throughout the term.



Due to current circumstances, please only bring essential items to school on a daily basis: Reading book, spelling book, reading diary, homework books and a lunch box (if not having hot school meals). Pencil cases are provided in school and currently cannot be brought in from home.

Please provide your child with a refillable water bottle that is taken home daily for washing before returning to school the next day.

Please ensure your child has a coat and any additional items of clothing such as: gloves, scarf and hat to keep them warm outside on the playground. As we are having to keep windows open in the classrooms due to current circumstances, additional items of clothing under school uniform may be necessary for keeping your child warm at school.
