Year 5 - 2020/21 Curriculum Overview 


In English this term we are learning about the "unsinkable" Titanic. The children will be investigating the wreckage and trying to decide who they think was at fault on that fateful night. Once they have decided who they think is at fault they will write an informative newspaper article about this. 



In Maths, we will be continuing our work on shapes: looking at the properties of regular and irregular polygons and using our knowledge of angles and measurement. We will then be looking at position of direction of shape before we finish up our year finding out about and converting some different units of measurement. 



In this topic of forces, the children learn about the different forces in the world around them. We will be looking at how forces such as gravity and friction affect the world around us and investigating how air and water resistance can change the speed of moving things. We will be working scientifically and conducting experiments looking into such things as; how does air resistance affect the flight of a helicopter. 


In our religion lessons this term we will be learning about other religions, with a focus on the Muslim faith. We will dive into the meaning of their faith and make comparisons between Catholicism and the Muslim faith. 



The children will learn about the journeys the products we use every day go through to get into our shops. We will look into Fairtrade and think about how we can be ethical shoppers.
