Year 5 and 6 Curriculum
Learning Challenge Curriculum – ‘Could we survive without rainforests?’
We will be continuing our South America learning challenge this half term and gradually moving on to investigate rainforests. We will be exploring:
Where are the rainforests and what are their main features?
How have humans impacted on the rainforest?
What have rainforests got to do with Fairtrade?
What is the most amazing animal in the rainforest?
Can we create a rainforest collage to summarise our learning?
In Year 6, we will be continuing to explore, ‘Could Spiderman really exist?’ We will be completing our investigations which have been going mouldy for some time now. Then, we will move on to consider ways living organisms could be classified. Our next challenge is focused on ‘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.

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.
