Class Information

Welcome to Oaks Class (Year 5/6)

Welcome to Oaks Class, Years 5 and 6 play a crucial role in primary education and we look to fill this time with exciting lessons and topics, that will not only be memorable but create a solid foundation before the pupils move on to secondary school.

Lastly, we ensure to follow the national curriculum for the primary curriculum in England for programmes of study and attainment targets for KS2.

Terms/Topic Information

Curriculum planning here at Sedley’s follows a thematic approach, with topics at the heart of each term of learning. We have a programme mapped out for the year in which we make meaningful links so that learning opportunities are maximised.  Teaching staff have developed the themes for our children to explore, ensuring coverage of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study.  These plans, however, are fluid and are developed, revised and changed according to the needs and interests of the children.

More Infomation about the subjects can be found on our curriculum pages.
