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.



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!

Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued.

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 ‘Minibeast Madness’ ‘Dick Whittington’ and ‘Robin Hood’.
