Shakespeare, Tolkien, Austen, Bronte and Dickens Classes
The Year 5/6 Topics
Our curriculum is taught through three main topics each year (one per term) and cross-curricular links are utilised wherever possible. We follow the National Curriculum, full details of which can be found HERE.
Year 5/6 work on a two year cycle so all children will be taught all of the topics listed below but some children will be taught these topics when they at in year 5 and others when they are in year 6. The topics have been carefully planned to ensure that all children are able to access the content. All Year 5 and 6 children receive Spanish and music lessons once a fortnight, taught by specialist teachers, and the children also receive 2 hours of PE each week. Class trips are often organised to enhance a topic and support the learning taking place at school.
