Years 5 and 6

A creative timetable has been developed and as many cross curricular links are made as possible.

The National Curriculum for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the new curriculum standards. Targets are discussed with individual pupils.

The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class. Please find the list of book for Year 5&6, our curriculum map for this academic year and our Topic Web for the current term:


YEAR 5&6 Curriculum Overview Cycle B new



The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take a pride in their work.

Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. A Literacy focus is usually used when a themed piece of homework is set on a half termly basis.

We expect the pupils to read each evening (building fluency and understanding in reading is vital to ensure children are able readers) and to learn spellings and multiplication tables.

We have taken pride in using the Tackling Tables Scheme so lots of practise with times tables is key!

Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.

We also put on annual Summer Productions in which the children have opportunities to have key acting roles and perform in front of their friends and family. Previous productions we have done include ‘Gold: King Midas’ and ‘We’re all going on a Summer Holiday’.

PE with Joe

Posted on January 20th, 2021

Well…We (and I do mean the children, myself and Miss Leftley) had a go at Joe Wicks on Tuesday.

It was very hard work…But we did it (I am kangaroo’d out). Super fun though. So fun in fact that they want to do it again.

Virtual Games – sporting success!

Posted on December 29th, 2020

Even though we have not been able to compete against other schools at sporting events this term, the children have been busy competing in the local area Virtual games. See detailed report and photos below. Thank you to Miss Leftley for all the organising.
