Upper Key Stage 2 (Y 5/6)
Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2

Year 6 Mrs Collins
Year 5 is an exciting and challenging start to Upper Key Stage 2, where we strive to ensure that our children have the knowledge, understanding and readiness for their final school year in Year 6. We build on the already established skills to help them produce work of a high standard. Through a rich and stimulating curriculum, the children can challenge themselves through promoting independent enquiry and cooperative learning.
The Year 6 experience is hugely important both academically and emotionally. Our aim is to provide the children with an exciting curriculum and a positive final year, as well as celebrate their time in primary school, before they embark on a new chapter of their lives in secondary school. Our challenge in Year 6 is to ensure that the children are ready to face and meet the demands of the end of year statutory national assessments and also the transition into secondary eduaction.

We thoroughly enjoyed participating in the African Workshop. We designed and made African Dan masks and took part in African dancing.

We enjoyed learning about freedom quilts and even had a go at designing and making our own quilts.
We loved listening to Mrs Vernon-Asimeng talk about her time spent in Africa. We have also been busy taking part in a class debate about slavery.
During assembly, we enjoyed learning all about the importance of fire safety.
