UKS2 Curriculum - From Sept' 2020

Autumn 2nd 2021 News Update
What a fun-filled term of learning we have enjoyed in Upper Key Stage Two. 
The Year 5 children have loved reading "The Boy in the Back of the Classroom" and have written some fantastic newspaper articles about the plight of Refugees coming to this country. They have also enjoyed tasting Pomegranates - which feature in the book. The Year 6 children have continued their writing project with Pi Corbett and have written some amazing stories based on Podkin One-ear. 
In Maths the children really enjoyed their learning on Alan Turing - on our Celebrated Mathematician day. He currently features on the £50.00 notes due to his pioneering work on mathematical coding. It was great fun cracking codes. 
Our Science topic has been all about the Human Body - we made representations of blood using cheerios, red dye, oil, salt and mini pom-poms for each of the components and learnt all about the circulatory system too. 
Our Amazing Artist day this half term focused on Van Gogh's Starry Night. The children worked so hard to recreate this piece using his short brush-stroke technique; they were really stunning. 
The children have also enjoyed Trampolining as part of their PE provision. 
This 1/2 term we also enjoyed all our Christmas Festivities - Year 5 filmed x2 pieces from their clarinet lessons "Sleigh Ride and Xmas Time" and Year 6 wrote their own School-themed version of the 12 days of Christmas. We enjoyed our end of term parties, made beautiful Christmas Cards and Calendars using a decorated wood slice. We enjoyed watching Jack and the Beanstalk Pantomime and all the children made their own Christingles - learning about their symbolism too. 
Next half term we are looking forward to our topic of "The Americas" where we will be focusing on the Incas. We hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2022.
