Puffins - Year 5/6 2020 - 2021

Mrs Hall




Autumn Term 2020

Curriculum Learning -  Autumn 1

Welcome to Puffins. We hope that you had a good summer break and are ready for the busy term ahead.


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk on the Moon?

Our inspirational text, ‘Where Once We Stood,’ by Christopher Riley tells the stories of the Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon. Each mission is retold using the actual conversation that took place between the astronauts on the lunar surface. Using the text as a stimulus, the children will plan and write an explanation narrative and a formal report to recount the events of the Apollo missions.

In history this half term, the children will explore the world of the Anglo-Saxons and why they came to Britain. They will consider the question ‘Was the Anglo-Saxon period really a Dark Age?’

As we have had so much rain during the last week, we shall begin our science by learning about the Water Cycle. The children will carry out some exciting experiments and attempt to create their own mini water cycle in the classroom! We shall follow this with a study of Forces and Gravity, which will develop the children’s scientific understanding of the world around them.

Reading, Spelling and Maths homework will be set each Friday, and is due in the following Wednesday.

Year 5 will have two pieces of homework to complete online. Year 6 will have one piece of homework to complete online, and one in their homework book.

To keep up to date with what’s happening in Puffins, please check the school Twitter feed regularly.

Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact us on the email addresses at the top of the page.

We recognise that things maybe a little different at the start of term, but this is an exciting time for Puffins as we grow together as a class.

Kind Regards

Mrs Hall and Mrs Ward
