Year 5 and 6 Curriculum

Learning Challenge Curriculum – ‘Invaders = sea-faring savages?’

This half term is the second half of our learning about the Vikings.  Year 6 have been on their visit to Jorvik and will be teaching each other. Year 5 will have a brilliant time! We also have a Viking treasure box arriving in school so we can get hands on with real evidence of this era in time. We will still be looking at these questions:

  • Who were these invaders of Britain and what was important to them?
  • What evidence do we have that they were here in the first place?
  • Law and order – how did it work and how is it different now?
  • What did these invaders believe in and has it impacted on us today?
  • Can you create a settlement that these invaders lived in?



In Year 6, we will be completing lots of experiments to do with light. Our main area of learning is to work out if we can bend it or not! We think we can; it is just investigating a precise way to do it.

All of the children in Year 5 and 6 will be given English and Maths homework weekly. This will include a variety of tasks, including spellings, to encourage the children to continue their learning at home. Children will be expected to complete at least three 20 minute readings per week; these must be signed by an adult at home to collect their stars.
