Upper Key Stage 2

September 2017

Year 5

The children in Year 5 are currently studying the topic of the Rainforest. They will explore the significance of this ecosystem to the global climate and investigate the diverse range of species found in this environment.

The children will be linking their English work to this topic as they are using ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson, as their key text.



Year 6

In Year 6, the children are exploring the topic of ‘Courageous Coventry’. They will be investigating how our city has changed since 1930 and the important role it played in the events of World War Two.

The key texts in English will be:

‘There is a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar which focuses on issues of bullying and changing friendships.

‘Run Rabbit Run’ by Barbara Mitchelhill  which is set during World War Two and explores the hardships faced by a girl and her younger brother.

The children in Year 6 are also looking forward to Adventure Week and Dol-y-Moch in September. The children really enjoyed their experiences last year and I am sure these children will also have an incredible time.
