Year 5 and 6 Curriculum - Autumn Term 2
Maths - Division followed by fractions
This half-term we are continuing our work on division, especially long division and then moving onto fractions. We will be revising work taught in previous years involving the four operations (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication) and fractions where the fractions have either the same or different denominators.
We will also then be learning how to apply this knowledge to a series of word problems that involve, length, area, time and money.
To practice maths and have fun at the same time use your Prodigy account: www.prodigygame.com
Our core texts this half term are Over the Line, a selection of war poetry and the Sainsbury’s ‘Christmas truce’ advert.
We will be learning to write war poetry, a newspaper report and a descriptive piece.

Science - Animals including humans
What are the functions of the heart, the blood vessels and the blood? The heart pumps blood in the blood vessels around to the lungs. Oxygen goes into the blood and carbon dioxide is removed. The blood goes back to the heart and is then pumped around the body. Nutrients, water and oxygen are transported in the blood to the muscles and other parts of the body where they are needed. As they are used, they produce carbon dioxide and other waste products. Carbon dioxide is carried by the blood back to the heart and then the cycle starts again as it is transported back to the lungs to be removed from the body.
This is the human circulatory system.
Diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle have an impact on the way our bodies function. They can affect how well out heart and lungs work, how likely we are to suffer from conditions such as diabetes, how clearly we think, and generally how fit and well we feel. Some conditions are caused by deficiencies in our diet e.g. lack of vitamins.
History - The Anglo Saxons
Around about the year 410, the last Roman soldiers left Britain to defend Rome. The Britons left here could not defeat the Anglo-Saxons, who arrived from Europe as raiders but eventually settled here. There were four main kingdoms: Northumbria, Mercia, East Anglia and Wessex and people started to talk about the Land of the Angles, or Angle-Land, or England. In 597, the Pope sent a monk called Augustine to England to teach the Anglo-Saxons about Christianity. An amazing collection of famous Anglo-Saxon treasure was found at Sutton Hoo. Archaeologists think the treasure belonged to a king of East Anglia.
Geography - The Rhine and the Mediterranean
Measuring 764 miles, The Rhine is one of the longest rivers in Europe. It stretches from its source in the Swiss Alps to its mouth at Rotterdam and along the way flows through many different places in six different countries. The Rhine also has several different rivers that flow into it, known as tributaries. Over time, the course of the river has been changed to make it easier for ships to sail on it - some areas have been drained and locks built to raise and lower level of the river.
The Mediterranean is located between three different continents – Europe, Africa and Asia. At its narrowest point it is only 8.5 miles wide and you can sail from Europe to Africa in 35 minutes. There are 21 countries with a coastline on the Mediterranean (or the Med) and several smaller seas are found within it, such as the Aegean.
The Suez Canal, which is a constructed waterway (completed in 1869) has greatly reduced the need for ships to go around the southern coast of Africa when sailing east-west around the globe...

In this unit, we will learn about the World Wide Web as a communication tool. First, how we find information on the World Wide Web, through learning how search engines work (including how they select and rank results) and what influences searching, and through comparing different search engines. They will then investigate different methods of communication, before focusing on internet-based communication. Finally, we will evaluate which methods of internet communication to use for particular purposes.
