Class 6 is a mixed year 5 & year 6 class. In the morning Literacy and Numeracy are taught taking objectives from these year groups alongside tailor made teaching to fit individual learning needs. Literacy is generally taught based on a class text. In Autumn this will be The Hundred Mile an Hour Dog by Jeremy Strong and Born to Run by Michael Morpurgo. In Spring we will be reading Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo as part of out topic on WW2. Interventions take place using Rapid Reading, Rapid Maths and Phonics is taught using Letters and Sounds.
In the afternoon lessons are taught using a topic approach. In autumn this is Amazing Animals and will have a predominantly science and PHSE focus. In Spring we will be studying WW2. During the Summer Term we will be studying The Great Outdoors. History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Science and Computing are taught through these topics. Where links cannot be made to the topic, for example programming in Computing, these are taught discretely. For more information on this, click on the curriculum link.
P.E. is taught on a Monday afternoon. One half term a year children attend swimming lessons on a Friday morning. This is done on a Rota Basis. On a Tuesday afternoon we have a time slot in the school kitchen. Children cook a wide variety of sweet and savoury dishes which they can then take home with them.
Every effort is made to make the curriculum as creative and hands on as possible. To support this, a variety of school trips are planned which are designed to stimulate children’s learning, develop their team work and promote new experiences.
