Class 6 is a mixed year 5 and year 6 class. In the morning English and Maths 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 Letters from an Alien Schoolboy by R. L. Asquith. Interventions take place using Rapid Reading, and Phonics is taught using Rapid Phonics.
In the afternoon lessons are taught using a topic approach. In autumn out topics will be ‘Amazing Maps’ followed by ‘Food Glorious Food’. 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 savory 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.
