Learning Challenge Curriculum

Summer 01

 

Challenge Curriculum “Will you ever see the water you drink again?”

Our learning challenge this half term will be Geography based. It will involve the children exploring the topic of water and building on their rivers work from previous years. The questions we will be investigating are:

·         How does rainwater form in the first place?

·         Why do some places go for a long time without rain and others have too much rain?

·         How is water used to help provide energy to many places?

·         Can you create a moving toy that requires water to power it?

·         What happens to the water in our home once it disappears down the sink?

 Science

 Year 6 will be enquiring: “What would a journey through your body be like?” In this unit we will look at some of the main systems in our body. It will include:

  • Circulatory system - heart, blood vessels, clotting
  • Respiratory system
  • Digestive system.

We will also consider how diet, exercise, drugs, lifestyle and health affects the body.

 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.
