Welcome to Upper Key Stage Two!

Years 5/6 - Our Autumn 2019 Big Picture question:

Are our valuables more important than our values?

Welcome to Years 5 and 6! Our class names are Robins (Y5), Woodpeckers (Y5), Owls (Y6) and Magpies (Y6). Our learning always starts with a big question. We are planning some interesting memorable experiences and we will conclude our term with an opportunity to share our learning with an audience.

Autumn is our 'Discover' term. Historical knowledge and understanding are our starting points, and other subjects link to our theme wherever possible. Our Knowledge Organisers provide specific curriculum content and vocabulary that will be learned by children.

As Year 6 children prepare for the national tests in May 2020, we aim to support families and encourage working together. Our most recent workshop focused on reading, and the slides are available below.

Learning Together

Memorable Experiences

As part of the Big Picture plan, we aim to give children a memorable experience to inspire them in their learning. This term, for example, we visited Weston Park museum in Sheffield, where historians helped us to discover what life was like for people living in the Bronze Age.

Authentic Outcomes: Working with Waterstones Lincoln

We have written our very own book based on our learning about The Romans this term, which has been published. We enjoyed a very special launch evening at Waterstones Lincoln, where a panel of visitors critiqued out work. They included guests from Lincoln City Football Club and Bishop Grosseteste University. Our parents families and teachers are very proud of us!
