Class 7 is a mixed year 5 and year 6 class. In the morning, Maths and English are taught taking objectives from these year groups alongside tailor made teaching to fit individual learning needs. In order to further support children in their learning Interventions take place using Rapid Reading, Earth programme (handwriting intervention) and Phonics is taught using Letters and Sounds.
In class the majority of lessons, including English, are taught through a creative curriculum approach. These include History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Science and Computing. 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. During the Autumn term the main topic for the creative curriculum is the World War Two. In the Spring the lessons will be linked around the theme of Global Warming and Climate Change. This work will be carried out alongside a focus on improving English and Math skills before the forthcoming SATs tests. In the final term, Summer, our main theme will be the Mayans.
P.E. is taught on a Monday afternoon. During the Autumn term, the children attend swimming lessons on a Friday morning. On a Wednesday 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.
