Year 5/ 6
Welcome to Year 5/6!
Upper Key stage 2 is about gaining more independence to help us learn and having more responsibilities around the school.
We involve the pupils to make our topics as exciting and inspiring as possible by them guiding us to what they would like to learn. We love doing lots of practical work, using Visual Literacy, using drama to help us learn, and going on exciting trips and having people in to talk to us about our topics.

We expect one workout for each subject completed per week.
