In upper key stage two, we aim to ensure that all our children are ready to leave us with the skills and attitudes they need to be successful at their chosen secondary school and beyond. Learning is focused on achieving this aim, with each class continuing to develop their reading, writing and maths skills each morning, as well as focusing on raising aspirations. Over the year, we cover a range of topics such as the Vikings and Space. Throughout our topics we aim to incorporate our own enterprise skills, for example we created our own Viking museum and opened it to all children and parents. We also have the added bonus of lots of trips such as visiting the National Space Centre in Leicester or Nottingham University to find out about potential courses and careers in the future. Homework is strongly linked to the learning in class and parents can support their children by encouraging them to independently complete their homework and return it on time.
