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 English 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 recommended books 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 English learning objectives for that week. An English 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), to learn spellings and practise their 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’.
