Westcliffe Primary School

'Our school is committed to inspirational teaching that develops aspirational young people.'


Welcome to 5/6R’s Page!

On this page our teacher, Miss Ross, will share and update you with everything going on in our class. She’s not our only teacher though as we mix classes for maths and reading!
Our PE Days are (usually) Tuesday and Friday. These can sometimes change due to weather and other circumstances, so it is advised to keep PE kit in school all week.


Spring Term

This half term our topic is called, 'Location, Location, Location'.  We need to help make a decision – Where should a family settle, Scunthorpe or Yukon? Where in the world is the Yukon territory? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each place? Just how similar or different are they? Along the way, we will also be learning about climates and biomes, climate change and renewable energy resources. Where appropriate, we will be linking our ICT skills to help use gain in knowledge and application.

Later in the term, we will be delving into some investigative science; we will look at how diet and exercise has an effect on the body. We will even do some investigations into how our own bodies react to exercise.

In history, we will be finding out all about the Early Islamic Civilisation in Baghdad, and create some Islamic inspired 3D models alongside it.

During our driver sessions, we are covering the properties of materials in science, internet safety and tolerance lessons, as well as delving further into understanding the five British Values.

All of this is alongside our daily maths lessons and weekly PE, French and music sessions! So, as you can see we will be busy, busy, busy!


Autumn Term – World War II

This term we are doing a very interesting topic in 5/6: World War II. During Autumn, we will learn all about the key events of the war along with the allied and axis forces that were part of the conflict.
We will learn about the terrifying events of the blitz and write as if we had gone through an air raid ourselves!
Also, we will look at the horrific events of the holocaust through the eyes of Anne Frank and other survivors. To help us get an understanding of this, we will be visiting The National Holocaust Centre. There we will hear the harrowing story of a survivor, as well as going on a journey of a Jewish child, Leo, at that time.
We will be honing our sketching skills, inspired by the work of Clarice Cliff.
This term will be lots of fun, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing all about it at home!
