Year 5 & 6

Class Freedom, Protection & Opportunity


Year 5 and 6 has 3 classes.  A Year 5 class, and 2 classes comprised of Year 5 and 6 children. These years continue to further develop the children’s independence in their approach to learning.  We encourage children to take on more responsibility making them future ready, building for when they move on the secondary school. The mornings continue to be focused on English and Maths, building on children’s previous learning.  The afternoons cover the learning in all the other curriculum areas over a two year rolling programme ensuring coverage.  

 Year 6 is an important year in making the children secondary ready and we give them additional responsibilities to help them develop this, One of the highlights for the children is being Foundation stage buddies, where each year 6 takes responsibility to help a Foundation Stage child settle into school.
