Year 5/6

Summer 2:  Festival of Food

Preparing tasty dishes to eat is the exciting outcome of this topic.  Through learning about food hygiene, healthy eating and different methods of food preparation, we will develop the skills to plan and prepare a range of delicious foods.  Towards the end of term, Year 5/6 will turn their attention to rehearsals for their end of year play performance.

Summer 1:  Today the World Came to My Place

How am I linked to places around the world?  We began this topic by looking at our personal links to countries around the globe, and looked at how everyday items available to us widen those links.  Geography was the main driver as we considered a variety of maps and looked at trading.  Our PSHE developed our understanding of Fairtrade and we explored music and art from different cultures.  Our topic finished with an independent country study using a wide variety of geographical, research and presentation skills.

Spring 2: Love Conquers All

Shakespeare's famous play, Romeo and Juliet, was the driver for this topic.  A highlight was a visit from Theatre Exchange, where we enjoyed the opportunity to be coached by experts to create our own performance.  In music lessons, we listened to and reviewed a variety different composers' musical settings of Romeo and Juliet.  Linking to the potions available from the apothecary, we explored mixing and dissolving materials.  We also investigated reversible and irreversible changes.
