We are a mixed Year 5/6 class who are taught by Mrs Lawton, supported by Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Inskip and Mr Richards.

This is what we will be learning about in the Summer term:

Maths: This term we will cover the following

Fractions, decimals and percentages, properties of shape, position and direction, converting units, and volume.  We use the White Rose approach of looking at every maths concept in terms of reasoning, applying and problem solving.

English: We will develop our English skills across a range of genres and text types through the use of the following texts:

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein, Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun tan, The Convergence of the Twin by Thomas Hardy, Sensational! Poems inspired by the five sense chosen by Roger McGough, and, various collections of reports and persuasive texts.

Topic: The Maya

We will study the fascinating Maya in the vigorously researched topic. We will discover where and when the Maya built their magnificent civilisation as the children develop a range of skills across the curriculum. We will also investigate how they lived, their culture and their legacy. Then we will compare their lives to our own as we bring the learning together.

ICT: We Are Architects

They children will be creating a virtual space to investigate productivity.

Science: Living things and their habitats.

The children will look at a range of different animal and plant life cycles. Once they have gained a good insight in to the Scientific processes, they will learn more about the human life cycle.

RE: Enquiry and Islam

Our focus this term will be on the children’s own line of enquiry that they will select themselves and they will learn about the 5 pillars of Islam .

Music: Songs

This term will see Aqua Class continue to build upon their knowledge of musical genres and experiences using instruments (including their voices).


This will usually be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Presentation expectations are the same as those for classwork.. At times, homework may be set on the learning platform or small projects will be given that will last over a longer period of time. Please remember to access ‘Bug Club’ and ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ regularly.


Indoor sessions will take place on a Thursday and will include dance and gymnastics. The children will need to wear their school PE kit: navy shorts and light blue t-shirt.  Outdoor games lessons, which include invasion games and target games, will be delivered on a Tuesday, depending upon weekly weather conditions.  It is therefore important that in addition to school PE kit, the children have pumps or trainers and a track suit in school AT ALL TIMES so that they are prepared for an outdoor lesson.

Swimming sessions will take place on a Thursday mornings for the Year 5 children. The children will need to wear the appropriate swim wear.
