Learning in Year 5 and 6
In Year 5 and 6, projects are taught over a 2 year cycle.
Every Advent (autumn) Term is a History based project; every Lent (spring) Term is a Geography based project and every Pentecost (summer) Term is based around Art/ Design and Technology and/ or the wider world.
Some subjects sometimes link in with the main ‘topic’ – such as science and computing; others stand alone – such as French, PE and PSHE.
