With regards English and Maths, we know that the children have missed out on some learning and therefore will be ensuring that they will be taught anything not covered from the year five curriculum before building on that knowledge with the year six curriculum.
Our first exciting topic for September is “Could you survive?” In it we will be looking at extremes in nature, including desert and arctic climate regions, as well as floods, earthquakes and volcanoes. The topic is a mix of geographical knowledge and skills, sprinkled with some major historical events. To tie things together, we will be reading a novel called “Floodland” by Marcus Sedgwick. Our Science this half time is part 2 of the “Living Things and Their Habitats” topic, which looks at classifying plants and animals and the work of the scientist Carl Linnaeus. During the Autumn term, we will be continuing with a broad curriculum by covering French, Art, DT, Music, RE, PE and Computing, either within our topic or as stand-alone lessons.
