In Year 6 we ensure that all our pupils receive a purposeful learning experience, developing skills and knowledge through our creative curriculum. During the year we will be reading books by a variety of authors, exploring different genres and celebrating the diversity of the work. It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination.

Mathematical knowledge and skills will be developed though practical and real-life experiences, encouraging children to use reasoning and problem-solving skills. Meaningful learning will take place through visits, visitors and the use of technology. Our engaging activities in all curriculum areas will enable children to develop further independence, cooperation and resilience.

There will be a whole range of different excursions, opportunities and sporting events for our children to take part in. We believe that this is a vital area in which children can flourish and develop self-awareness and independence.

We always try our best and follow our School Charter in the classroom and out on the playground. Children in UKS2 are seen as role models and younger children will often look up to them to show the way, it is important to us that we model good behaviour all around the school.
