Year 5 and 6 Curriculum

 Learning Challenge Curriculum – ‘Why does Whitby rock?’

Our learning challenge this half term is an exciting one and involves a trip to this lovely seaside town. We will spend quite a bit of time exploring the geographical features of Whitby and comparing it to Burley. The questions we will explore are:

  • Where is Whitby?
  • How have humans impacted on Whitby?
  • What do whales have to do with Whitby?
  • Where would you rather live: Burley or Whitby?
  • Can you set up your own successful business in Whitby?
  • Can you create a sculpture which represents Whitby?
  • What secrets does Whitby have to tell?


Year 6 will be exploring ‘Have we always looked like this?’ A unit which looks at living things. We will carefully observe microorganisms, plants and animals and consider ways they could be classified. The classification system will be introduced looking at invertebrates and vertebrates.

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.
