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. 

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.

Children are expected to take part in outdoor and indoor PE every week and they therefore need to be appropriately dressed for the weather.


Y6 Safe Touch Workshop

On Monday 13th November, the charity CRASAC came to work with the children in 6ST. During the session, the children discussed various situations, such as riding a rollercoaster or being approached by a stranger, and decided how safe or unsafe they would feel in these scenarios. The children were then able to identify early warning signs to understand when they felt unsafe. The workshop went on to discuss personal space and other important topics, including knowing that your body belongs to you. 6ST showed maturity and respect during the workshop and were engaged throughout the afternoon. The session was repeated with 6CB the following week; they also got a lot out of it.


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.
