Welcome to the Summer Term in Kestrel Class!

Here is the link to the Year 5 and Year 6 class talk from 10/09/2020

The information below outlines the topics that are covered in UKS2 during the Spring term. If you wish to support your child explore some of these topics then please encourage them to borrow books from the library, find and read articles relating to the topics or visit local museums and places of interest. The children will hopefully enjoy these topics and will return home to share the information they have learnt with their parents.

UKS2 Curriculum Information- English and Maths



The key skill of communication includes skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Skills in speaking and listening include the ability to speak effectively for different audiences; to listen, understand and respond appropriately to others; and to participate effectively in group discussion. Skills in reading include the ability to read fluently and analyse a range of literary and non-fiction texts and to reflect critically on what is read. When writing, children should write fluently for a range of purposes and audiences and be able to edit and improve their own and others' writing. Opportunities for developing this key skill are provided through focused English lessons but also constantly through pupils' use of language across all areas of the curriculum.  Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, often referred to as SPAG, is taught explicitly as well as being embedded into lessons.

As a school we now follow the Pathways to Read and Pathways to Write programmes on a 2 year rolling programme.



Maths skills include developing a range of mental and written calculation methods and the ability to apply these to problem solving activities. Children should understand and use mathematical language related to numbers and calculations. They will learn to solve increasingly complex problems and clearly explain the reasoning used. Pupils need to be able to apply calculation skills and the understanding of number to problems in other subjects and to real-life situations. Opportunities for developing this key skill are constantly provided in focused maths lessons and where possible, are linked to topic work.


Our Christian Value is Friendship. Following our Class Charter will mean that no one is left out and that everyone is a friend.

We hope you find our class pages useful. If you wish to discuss any matters further, please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office.
