Year 5/6 Summer term 1 2024

Welcome back to our Summer term 1! This half-term, we have our geography-based topic: Australia.

The Brilliant Deep.jpg


How is Australia different to the United Kingdom?

We will be learning all about Australia 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 persuasive text about coral reefs, inspired by our class text 'The Brilliant Deep' by Kate Messner. We will explore non-fiction writing and how to effectively use vocabulary and grammar to persuade our audience.

Guided Reading: This term, we will be reading the book, 'Great Adventurers' by Alistair Humphreys. We will use this text to build our prediction and vocabulary understanding and our retrieval and inference skills.

Maths: Year 5 will be exploring geometry, position and direction and measurements. Year 6 will be recapping their maths skills, especially in geometry, algebra and area and perimeter

Science: In Science, we will be learning about 'Living things and their habitats'. We will be exploring the different life cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds and considering their similarities and differences.

We are very lucky to have the following staff to support and help the children in their learning:
