What are we learning about in Term 5?

Welcome to Term 5, Justice Detectives!

Get ready for an exciting adventure learning all about crimes and punishments through history! This term, you'll go on a journey back in time to discover how different societies decided what was right and wrong. You'll learn about harsh punishments like the "eye for an eye" law as well as fairer reforms that protected human rights. 📜⚖️ On your marks, get set, investigate!


Maths this term will begin with 2 weeks learning about shape covering the following elements: measure and classify angles; calculate angles; calculate vertically opposite angles; calculate angles in triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons; draw shapes accurately and problem solve with nets of 3-D shapes. We will then do some revision of challenging topics covered so far.


This term we will have 2 class texts, “Holes” by Louis Sachar and “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. When reading Holes we will be writing setting descriptions, detailed narratives and a nonchronological report. When studying The Highwayman we will be writing character descriptions and internal monologues.


In Science this term we will be learning about Electricity. You will link the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit; compare and give reasons for variations in how components function and recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram. Computing Computing this term will be themed around Kodu where we will learn about programming language.


Does the Crime Fit the Punishment? This term, we will be learning about crime and punishment throughout the ages focusing on the following eras in UK history: Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Middle Ages, Tudors, Victorians and Modern UK. Religious Education This term we will be learning about Islam and we will answer the question, “Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?”


This term we are back to two PE sessions at school and we will be playing tennis and netball.

Here’s to an excellent term, Mr Churchill and the Year 6 Team.




Termly Homework

Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be stuck into books and any models etc can be brought into school to be presented to the rest of the class if they wish.

For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Shed to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.

Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term. 

Home learning may also be supplemented from time to time with other activities to reinforce learning we do in class. 

All homework will be awarded housepoints as well as housepoints given for reading quizzes. These will be added to each child's termly acrual in class to work towards a prize.

Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received. Thank you for your continued support.
