Years 5 and 6

Children’s learning follows the National Curriculum including daily English and Maths lessons and a topic based approach for History, Geography, Art and Design & Technology. Lessons in Science, Computing, Music, PE and RE are timetabled throughout the week.

As the children progress into Year 6 they start working towards their end of primary school SATs exams.

As the children continue further up the school their responsibilities increase. In Year 5 children have the opportunity to become a librarian. During the summer term of Year 5, the children begin to work towards the arrival of their new Reception Buddies. Year 6 children support their Reception Buddies throughout the year to help the youngest children settle and thrive in school.

Year 6 offers all children the chance to go on a school residential visit.

Children have the opportunity to nominate themselves to be a Team Captain – these positions are awarded by the rest of the children in Key Stage 2. A Head Girl and Head Boy are also elected by the school staff.

The children in Year 5 and 6 have a range of clubs they can enjoy and all children have the chance to audition for an acting part in the Key Stage 2 Christmas Production.

Year 6 present a Leaver’s Production at the end of the year.
