Autumn 1 - Blood Heart.


We spent the first half of the Autumn Term exploring a topic called Blood Heart.  We spent some of our time looking at and finding out about how amazing our bodies are and how the circulatory system works.  We even got to cut open a pig's heart to look at all the inner workings of the heart; this delighted some of our pupils but made others a bit squeamish!

We throughly enjoyed reading Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman.  We based a lot of our English work around this fantastic book, which enabled us to discuss and debate many valid issues.  Our Art work was based on using different media to portray hearts and blood cells. 

Autumn 2 - Darwin's Delights


Our topic for this half term is Darwin's Delights.  We have been busy reading "What Mr Darwin Saw", in order to find out about Darwin's voyage of dicovery aboard the HMS Beagle.  We used this book to have a go at writing our own adventure stories. 

During the week of the 9th November, Year 5 and 6 looked at WW1 poetry and extracts from Michael Morpurgo's "War Horse" and "Private Peaceful". We used the poetry and extracts to find out what life must have been like on a WW1 battlefield.  The children wrote some amazing and powerful battlefield descriptions. 

Well done Year 5 and 6 for your descriptive, thoughful, compassionate work. 

A Christmas Carol is our chosen text for Guided Raeding.  We are already half way through and enjoying the story.  We are looking forward to watching some film clips to compare the book to film.

Scops - Mrs Saunders (Y6)

              Spring Term 2 - Revolution

The Victorian Era

Are you listening, boy? What is 27 plus 45? Come on – faster now; we haven’t got all day! Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible! Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo! Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered. Take on the role of an important reformer and present your good causes to the Queen. Can you gain the support of a wealthy sponsor? Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!

Spring Term 1- Frozen Kingdom






Welcome to the planet's coldest lands. Vast wilds and hostile territories - incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to the icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek valiantly and bravely across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading  deep in the snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.  Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight!  Research and exploration is what this theme is all about so wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire - I'm just going outside and may be some time!!

Autumn Term - Time Traveller


Tick, tock, tick, tock...the hands on the clock never stop.


We are time travelling for our theme this term.  We shall be thinking about ourselves and the journeys that we go on.  We shall also be delving into the past and maybe whooshing into the future, too. 


Time Traveller. Autumn Term 1. Year 5 and 6

Autumn term 2019 - Useful Websites for Year 5 and 6

Summer Term

Our Ancient Egyptians theme will keep us busy in Year 5 and 6 over the next term.  We will be finding out what life was like over 5,000 years ago in this ancient civilisation. Our research will lead to us to unearthing Tutankhamun's tomb which will then  inform our chronological report writing.  Mummification will help us understand how the Egyptians preserved their people. We will also look at how they used hieroglyphs as their way of communicating and then have a go at writing in this style. In addition to this, we will look at the daily life style and much more! Our theme will culminate in a production based on Ancient Egypt.

Down Under

Welcome to our new theme for the spring term 'Down Under'.  We will be exploring the landscape of Australia through the book 'Are We There Yet?' by Alison Lester.  We will be writing diaries, non-chronological reports and poetry all linked to our theme.

Pioneer Centre Information from meeting on 1/11/18

World War Two

A siren goes off, the luftwaffe are overhead, bombs are falling, buildings are crumbling.  Take cover! Britain is at war. 

We are going to be finding out what life was like for a child during the second world war.   We will find out what it was like to be an evacuee, what the food was like and how they lived from day to day.

We will keep you up to date on our journey through the war years through to the day that peace is declared.
