Years 5 and 6 are both busy and challenging (but enjoyable) years. It consists of consolidating and building on the learning from Lower Key Stage 2 and preparing the children for entrance exams and high school. As in other year groups, children will be given work, books and materials appropriate to their individual needs and the opportunity to work at a pace that best suits them.
In addition to their learning, children will undertake additional responsibilities around the school. Resilience and independence are key as we prepare them for the pressures that Year 6/ High-School brings. However, we aim to include all our curriculum core values:
Resilience, Creativity, Critical thinking, Curiosity, Challenge and Culture.

In Years 5 & 6, children complete assessments throughout the school year. At the end of each block of learning, they complete informal maths assessments. Formal assessments – which inform data – are carried out at the end of each term.
In January, Year 6 will complete their entrance exams for King David and/ or grammar schools of their choosing. Children will be well prepped for these and more information will be given closer to the time.
