Year 6

 Year Six Curriculum

Autumn Term 2014

 

As is required by law, we follow the National Curriculum, which provides the children with the opportunity to fulfil their individual potential. All children are grouped within class according to achievements for grammar, Literacy and Numeracy. This is to ensure that each child's needs are met. This year is an exciting year for us as we are following a Creative Curriculum. The children will be involved in more practical and creative activites that are based on an initial starting point.

In addition to the Core subjects, the children will be studying
