Upper Key Stage 2 Curriculum
From September 2014 the school started to deliver a new curriculum in line with the new national initiatives. For detailed information see: National Curriculum Framework
Each term the children's work will be focused around specific topics ; the children complete six topic units across a two-year rolling cycle with topics like Rise of the Machines, Crime and Punishment and Tomorrow's World. Children continue to take part in inspiration days and end product events with parents actively encouraged to join in learning throughout. Click on the images below to see the topic learning overviews for each unit of work in Year 5 and 6.
"Children in Year 5 and 6 working wonderfully in their Earth and Beyond topic, where they are creating abstract rocket paintings, researching and create a biography about Charles Darwin and making chocolate rock strata to understand how fossils are made. They even added in some sweet fossils to show how fossils helped scientists to argue their theory of evolution! "
Provision for More Able Children
Every child in our school is encouraged to achieve their potential. We have a dedicated and talented team of teachers, and support workers, who provide extension materials and activities to meet the needs of each individual.
A small selection of some of the wonderful topic pages created this term in Year 5 and 6 from their topic Earth and Beyond'.
