Topic Work

 

 

In Upper Key Stage 2 the National Curriculum subjects are taught through a cross-curricular approach. Each term, learning focuses on a particular theme.  We have a question based format where children are presented with a question each week and learning opportunities are planned that help the children to answer the question.

Topic lessons take place multiple times each week and are taught in mixed ability classes with their class teacher.  Learning is differentiated to match the children's knowledge, skills and progress.  In addition links are made with other lessons such as English, Maths, PE, Music and Computing to ensure that children are fully engaged with the Topic.

The chart below details what Topic and questions the children will be learning over the next term.
