At Home

*Key points for learning at home are in this shade of blue


If the children are on the school reading scheme, they can bring in their book to change once it has been read at home with an adult or at school.  If the children are now free readers, they have the freedom to choose any book they wish to read.  It is key at this point that children keep on reading regularly.  It is also important that they attempt to read a variety of books.


Regular reading sessions really make a difference to the progress your child makes.

Teaching Methods

If you are keen to lend a helping hand at home but concerned about teaching your child differently from the school, we hear you.  Our Curriculum section, located within the School's Policies page, offers detailed insights into the teaching methods we employ across various subjects.  From long addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to English grammar and beyond, you'll find comprehensive guides to ensure consistency and support your child's learning journey.  Feel free to explore and access this valuable resource, providing you with the confidence to assist your child's education at home.


In Year 6, we explore a range of subjects, all listed below.  For some subjects, we provide additional content to give you a deeper understanding of our activities and learning experiences.




Collective Worship

Collective Worship is a very important part of our week. As a class, we lead class collective worship every week.  We think really hard about the theme of our Collective Worship, the Word of God which goes with it and a mission for us all to think about and to join in with.
