Kings Worthy Primary School

Y5 Spring 2 2024

Our second topic for the Spring term will be 'Sustainability' - an enquiry into how sustainable Kings Worthy is, and finding ways in which we can do more to help.   

Geography - Sustainability:

  • What eco schemes could we be a part of in school?
  • Which renewable energy source would be best for Kings Worthy and why?
  • What are local people able to recycle in Winchester compared to Devon?
  • Is Kings Worthy as sustainable as it could be as a community?

  Science - Changes of Materials:

  • This half-term we will have a workshop from Henry Beaufort Science teachers based on changes of materials. 
  • What are reversible and irreversible reactions; how can the properties of materials show a change has occurred?
  • What reactions create a new substance?
  • How can we separate substances from mixtures and solutions using sieving, filtering and evaporation?


  • Write our own commentary to The Majestic Plastic Bag mockumentary film using different cohesive devices and figurative language.
  • Creating a fantasy story inspired by Harry Potter, based in the same multiverse.


  • Decimals and Percentages: understanding decimals up to 2 decimal places, introducing thousandths, converting to fraction and decimals equivalences, rounding decimals, understanding percentages as part of 100, converting between fraction, decimal and percentage equivalences.
  • Area and Perimeter: measuring and calculating the area and perimeter of rectangles, rectilinear and irregular shapes using squares and the correct unit of measurement.
  • Statistics: drawing and interpreting tables, line graphs, two-way tables and timetables. 


  • We will be using animation software to design and create our own animations to promote sustainability in the Kings Worthy community, drawing attention to schemes we can be involved in.

Art - Printing:

  • Respond to the nature artwork of Johanna Basford and Este Macleod, analysing different techniques and using drawing, collage, textiles and printing to design their own large scale print as a final piece.

Music - Rap:

  • Listen and respond to different songs within the rap genre and creating their own 'Eco-rap' about a sustainability topic of their choice using a structured rhythm.
