Learning Challenge Curriculum

Spring 2

 

This half term, our theme moves back in time to the Anglo-Saxons. We will have a huge treasure chest delivered full of artefacts so we can see and feel real objects to help our learning. The learning challenge question is: Were the Anglo Saxons really smashing? We will explore:

1. Who were the Anglo-Saxons and how did they influence our life today?

2. How did the Anglo-Saxons bring law and order to Britain?

3. Which Anglo-Saxon Christian symbols remain with us today?

4. Can you create your own Anglo-Saxon art focusing on tessellations?

5. Who were the famous Anglo-Saxons, and why was Alfred so ‘great’?

6. Can you work as a group to create a model Anglo-Saxon settlement?

 In Year 6, we will be completing our unit on electricity, creating a game which is powered using a circuit. After that, we will begin our next area of learning: Can you bend light? We will first investigate how light travels, followed by researching about the eye and how we see objects.

Throughout school, we ensure each of our Science lessons contain elements of Scientific Enquiry. We use superheroes to help us remember what these are…

Supergirl- creating a fair test

Spy Magnus- observing over time

Billy Bookhead- using secondary sources

Captain Peeko- looking for patterns

 

For English our children will be taught by Mrs Cromack and for Maths they will be taught by Mrs Blaythorne.

Homework

All of the children in Year 5 and 6 will be given English and Maths homework weekly. This will include a variety of tasks, including spellings, to encourage the children to continue their learning at home. Children will be expected to complete at least three 20 minute readings per week; these must be signed by an adult at home to collect their stars. The children will also be set a small project based on their ‘Learning Challenge’ theme.
