Year 5/6 Spring term 2 2024

Welcome back to the second half of our Spring term! This half-term, we have our geography and science-based topic: Planet Earth.

Planet Earth

How has space exploration helped us map out planet Earth?

We will be learning all about the Earth and space through our history, geography, English, science and art & design lessons. 

Please see the downloads section to download our topic mind map and the knowledge organiser for this term. 


English: This term, we will be writing a biography, inspired by our class text 'The Darkest Dark' by Chris Hadfield. We will also have opportunities to explore setting descriptions and recounts, all linked to our class text.

Guided Reading: This term, we will be reading the book, 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell. We will use this text to build our prediction and vocabulary understanding and our retrieval and inference skills.

Maths: Year 5 will be finishing their learning on fractions, before moving on to learning about decimals and percentages. Year 6 will be finishing their learning on ratio, before moving on to learning about measurements, position and movement and graphs and averages.

Science: In Science, we will be learning about 'Earth and Space'. We will be exploring the movement of the Earth in relation to the Sun, the movement of the Moon in relation to the Earth and the way that ideas about our solar system have developed.
