Your child should have come home with a copy of the Year 5 and 6 Spelling List so that they can learn these at home to support the learning of these words in school.
In Autumn 1, our topic was Wild Wild West. We have been learning all about the location and history of The Wild West which we have thoroughly enjoyed! We had our own 'Wild West' Themed day to immerse ourself into the topic. To find out more about what we have been up to, click here.
In Autumn 2, our topic was Our Wonderful World. We have been focusing on our world as a whole and the countries of Brazil, China, Nigeria and The Netherlands. We have also had some exciting enrichment activities such as watching 'The Taming of the Shrew' and Hands On Science workshops. To find out more about what we have been up to, click here.

In Spring our topic has been The Big Freeze. In Spring 1, we focused our attention on Antarctica and looked at the text 'Shackleton's Journey' which inspired our English, Topic and D.T. learning for the term. Read about our learning here.
In Spring 2, we started to look at the Arctic and Aurora. We also had a Harry Potter themed Book Week that we enjoyed and Science Week themed around 'Our Diverse Planet'. To find out more about what we've been learning click here.
