Summer 1 Term

Our topic for Summer 1 is “Earth and space”.

For the first half of the Summer term our learning will be focussed around our Science topic of Earth and space! We will have lots of different opportunities to explore Earth and Space and we will have a visit from the school library service arranged for early in the term.


Here are some age appropriate books that the children may enjoy.

In English we will be writing a letter of invitation, a mysterious setting description and a balanced argument. In maths we will be focussing our learning on shape, space and measure, decimals and percentages and position and direction.

In History the children will be learning about the ancient Greeks and their way of life. In Science we will be exploring Earth and Space and recapping previous learning from lower KS2. In RSHE we will cover a variety of topics including what is prejudice and what should I do if I encounter prejudice. During our RE sessions we will be focussing on 'What does it mean to be a muslim in Britain today?'


Summer 2 Term

Our topic for Summer 2 is focussed around our history topic of the Ancient Greeks. 


Here are some age appropriate books that the children may enjoy.

In English we will be investigating a range of information linking to our topic. We will be writing a balanced argument, a narrative poem and a persuasive piece. In Maths we will be continuing our learning on position and direction, covering units and volume. 

In computing we will be focussing on video editing and how this can impact on the content that has been made. During our Science learning we will be focussing on states of matter and understanding reactions. In our PSHE lessons we will discuss the topic of why people can be unkind, look at analysing digital media and learn about menstration.
