Years 5 & 6

Years 5 and 6 Curriculum Overview

Welcome back. The children enjoyed their VE party and sharing their learning with their relatives at the end of last half term. Thank you to everyone who helped with the sewing of the teddy bears.

This half term our topic is called Gallery Rebels. The children will be learning about different 19th and 20th century artists. They will be discussing artistic features such as composition, colour, form and meaning. Throughout the topic they will create paintings and sculptures in the style of different artists.

In our writing we will be producing short narratives, descriptions of settings, poems and explanations. We will be learning about the science of colour and investigating how light is reflected.

In maths, we will continue to ensure that the children have a good understanding of the non-negotiables – the building blocks that support their maths learning. We will be developing the children’s ability to apply the mathematics they have been taught when problem solving.

In the Year 5 and 6 team we have the following teachers: Mrs Koszykowsha, Mrs Harris, Mrs McGarragh, Mr Hoten and Miss Pollendine. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Brown, Mrs Launn, Miss Murphy and Mrs Wickham.

I love this class because there is always something exciting to do!
