Year 5 & 6
Welcome to the Upper Key Stage 2 website area. There are four classes in this phase: 5JK, 5LM, 6CB and 6ST. All the children are aware how important these years are in their school life. In the morning our lessons include Literacy, Mathematics, handwriting and Guided Reading. In the afternoons we work on a different Creative Curriculum theme each term. The themes cover many subjects including History, Geography, Science, Art and DT. We also make full use of the Computing Suite, teaching a Computing session, one afternoon every week.
Children also get the chance to take part in PE session every week. Children must remember to bring an indoor PE kit (t-shirt, shorts and trainers) and an outdoor PE kit (jumper and tracksuit bottoms). Year 6 children are allowed to wear smart black sweatshirts to distinguish them from the rest of the school.

Y6 Mental Health Workshops
On Tuesday 11th January, Year 6 participated in a virtual workshop, which was delivered by the mental health team. This involved sharing strategies for dealing with changes in mood and comparing the difference between "big" and "small" worries. The children were very sensible during the session and enjoyed sharing their ideas with one another. Well done Year 6.
Year 5 and 6 Workshop
On Thursday 17th June, Year 5 and 6 children took part in a police and gangs workshop. This session outlined the risks and dangers that children may come across as they get older and start secondary school; it included the consequences they might face if they choose to get involved in gang activity. The children participated in lots of discussions around different scenarios they might face and were given advice on how best to avoid these situations. All of the children joined in and had lots of thoughtful ideas and contributions to share. The leader of the session complimented the children on their manners and for being so sensible during the morning.
