Year 5 and 6 Curriculum
Learning Challenge Curriculum
What Would a Mummy tell you about Ancient Egypt?
It has been wonderful to see the children so excited and enthusiastic about their learning. They have particularly enjoyed investigating the moral dilemmas around the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb. In this history-based topic we will continue to learn about how the pyramids were built and why they were and still are important. We will also be learning in detail about the process of mummification.
How pyramids were built.
How to create a net and then use it to create a pyramid.
How to use mouldable materials to create a mask.
Why were the Egyptian gods important?
In Year 6, we will be investigating ‘Could you be the next X Box apprentice?’ The focus of this unit is electricity. We will identify and name the parts of a simple circuit and investigate how the function of different components, e.g. brightness of a bulb, the volume of a buzzer can be changed.
Homework for this half term may be found here.
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.
