A new National Curriculum was introduced to schools in September 2014. English, Maths and Science make up the 'core' subjects in the primary school curriculum and the majority of learning time is spent on these subjects.
In addition to the 'core' subjects are the 'foundation' subjects of: History, Geography, Computing, Art & Design, Design and Technology, Foreign Languages (statutory from Year 3 onwards), Music and Physical Education.
R.E. and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) are also taught in Year 6. Pupils take part in the 'Peer Kids' project, a ten-week citizenship course.
Year 6 pupils are also given the opportunity to experience a longer residential visit to Carlton Outdoor Centre.
At Linthorpe Community Primary School, we adopt an engaging and creative way of ensuring that all children receive a high quality primary curriculum.
The context for learning:
Throughout the year, children work on a variety of stimulating and engaging Learning Projects through which the National Curriculum subjects, R.E and PSHE are taught. If it is not possible to link a subject or skill to a Learning Project in a meaningful way, then these are taught separately.
Year 6 Imaginative Learning Projects:
|Autumn Term||A Child's War|
|Spring Term||Frozen Kingdom|
|Summer Term||Blood Heart||Hola Mexico!|
Information for Parents about the New National Curriculum Key Stage 2 Tests 2020
At the end of Year 6, all pupils take part in statutory national assessments (SATs). This involves assessment tasks in Mathematics, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. Your child's writing in Year 6 is also assessed, although this is done by ongoing teacher assessment. You will be given opportunities to discuss assessments with your child's teacher. Results are reported to parents with each child's end of year report.
