Our Current Learning

Big Journey

This year, we will be teaching Science and our foundation subjects (History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Religious Education) using a creative approach.


Our current Big Journey is called 'To infinity... and beyond!' We will be learning all about Earth and Space - scientific facts, art and music inspired by space and even some writing about space travel. Just before the half term holiday, Year 5/6 will be involved in a special drama workshop based on the music from the film 'War of the Worlds'.


After the half term holidays, we will begin work on our next Big Journey -  'The Wind in the Willows'.


This half term, our science is being delivered through our Big Journey - 'To infinity... and beyond!'


This half term we are working on fractions, decimals and percentages. Year 5/6 will learn and practice a range of skills including:


  • Adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers
  • Multiplying and dividing fractions and mixed numbers
  • Finding equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages
  • Finding percentages of numbers


There is a link on our main 'Year 5/6' page that contains some useful websites to help your child with their maths.


This half term we will be studying balanced arguments. We will be having a debate and writing about whether man really went to the moon, and whether Russia should have sent a dog to space!


We will also be working on our descriptive skills, and writing short fantasy stories using a picture from 'The Mysteries of Harris Burdick' as inspiration.
