 Welcome to Year 5/6


Welcome to our Summer Term in Year 5/6. 

This term our topics are called 'Are you a Survivor?' and ' Is Slavery a thing of the past?'

The children will be working hard to achieve their goals in all areas of the curriculum. Have a look at some of the things they will be learning!


During our Maths lessons, we will be learning about ratio and proportion. We will also be familiarising ourselves with how to calculate the volume of a shape, as well as the area of a triangle. Furthermore, the children will start to become more familiar with how to identify scale factor and solve problems involving statistics.

In English, we will be studying the book Manfish; we will be using the book to inspire our own poetry, persuasive pieces and biographical writing. We will also be carrying out role play for a radio broadcast. In SPAG, we will continue to try to include the passive voice and formal and informal vocabulary within our written work.

Are you a survivor? In our Science lessons, the children will be looking at living things and their habitats: they will be learning how to classify animals into broad groups and identify specific characteristics of different living things. They will also recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information from millions of years ago.


Is Slavery a thing of the past?: In this unit, we will be investigationg the transportation of slaves to other countries and learning about the conditions faced by them. We will also be finding out about the significance of the slave trade to British life. In Geography, we will be identifying key places in relation to the slave trade.
