INTRODUCTION

The Primary School programme is divided into two clearly defined sections ;
Key Stage 1 which covers years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2 which covers years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

KEYSTAGE 1

KEYSTAGE 2

YEAR 1

YEAR 2

MATHS

Much of the work covered in Year 1 involves practical activities utilising :
  • weighing
  • measuring
  • telling the time
  • naming shapes
  • using money
  • counting
The work is often done in groups, allowing work at this level suitable for each pupil. They will learn :
  • to count forwards and backwards up to 100
  • addition and subtraction to 20
  • times tables
  • the use of objects
  • telling the time – analogue
  • common shapes
  • measuring
  • the start of fractions including a half & a quarter of shape and quantity
  • mental arithmetic

ENGLISH

This is a time when children enjoy stories, shop at the school, communicate with new friends and interact. This activity helps increase vocabulary and the correct use of words.

Phonetic learning advances and they will learn common letter groups such as “ea” and “th”. Spelling will link the sounds. Handwriting will continue to develop in Year 1 as they learn the lower case and upper case alphabet as well as numbers. They will begin to put words together to form short sentences which will include capital letters and full stops. The day will often finish with story-time.

SCIENCE

In Year 1 this involves, plants, animals, everyday materials and changes in the weather at different times of the year.

Pupils in this year group will have settled comfortably into school life and will know and understand what is expected of them during the school day. They are already tackling number work including learning shapes, addition and subtraction. On the creative front they will work with paint, dough and paper creating shapes and, “Works of art”.


MATHS

They will need to consolidate the work and topics covered in the previous years. Real life situations are used to help children understand and explain concepts. They will be familiar with shapes, numbers, patterns, counting, comparisons, money and time. They will now explore all of these aspects of maths in greater depth. Pupils will begin to work more independently with confidence and understanding. Multiplication and division will be introduced with 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

ENGLISH

Reading is essential as it increases vocabulary, stimulates the imagination and helps pupils enjoy books. Reading also helps with spelling and grammar and the use of adjectives and adverbs in their own writing. They will learn the correct use of tenses, commas and question marks as well as developing listening and speaking skills through group activities. High frequency words will continue to be learned and phonics further developed.

SCIENCE

Pupils will explore, “Living things” and their habitats. They will delve deeper into the animal kingdom knowing the difference between species, how they live and what they eat. They will further study plants and how seeds and bulbs grow. They will understand the basic needs of animals including humans. They will continue with everyday materials to include wood, metal and plastics and their use in society.

YEAR 3

YEAR 4

YEAR 5

YEAR 6

Pupils in Year 3 have now entered Key Stage 2 and will be substantially expanding their maths, English and science as well as covering aspects of history, geography and computer skills. Sport is also now part of the curriculum. This introduces children to the important skill of working as a team and thinking of others.


MATHS

Key Stage 2 work on maths introduces many new concepts. Multiplication becomes more involved and the 3, 4, and 8 times tables provide challenges. Division too is more complicated using division by all single numbers. There is complicated combination of multiplication and division at this stage. Pupils will now start adding and subtracting with three digit numbers using columns. At this stage parents / carers should become more involved at home re-enforcing the new work completed at school.

There are many ways that the home can help solidify new concepts – experience with money, shapes and measurements. Questions on these subjects will be introduced in order to evaluate progress and understanding. Pupils will also work on fractions of quantities and equivalent fractions. The 12 hour clock and the 24 hour clock will be expanded. Perimeters, right angles, horizontal, perpendicular and parallel lines are all topics which will be introduced in Year 3.

ENGLISH

Pupils in Year 3 need to be able to use their imagination in writing stories, thinking about the setting and developing their characters. They will also be introduced to poetry. An emphasis will be on grammar at this stage with continued work on adjectives, adverbs and nouns. The conjunctions after, because, before, so, when and while will be introduced. Pupils will need to use speech marks when writing dialogue. Teachers will continue to promote reading and regular use of the library will be encouraged.

SCIENCE

  • There will be a deeper analysis of our scientific terms.
  • Identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem / trunk, leaves and flowers.
  • Explore the requirement of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil and room for growth).
  • Investigate the way in which water is transported within plants.
We will continue with our work on animals to include:
  • Identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition.
  • Identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement.
Pupils will research Rocks comparing and grouping together different kinds on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties.
We will look at light and recognise its role in our lives.
We will consider magnets and how they react on different surfaces.

Pupils in Year 4, Key Stage 2 have by this point, absorbed a great deal. They will now enjoy applying that acquired knowledge in Maths, English, Science, History and Geography. Their physical skill levels will also be developing through competitive sports. Their computer skills will be progressing and they will be capable of making their own decisions.


MATHS

As the pupils mature they become more independent but some will still require reinforcement from teachers and parents. By the end of this year, they should be confident in tables up to 12. They will be able to add and subtract numbers with up to four digits using columns. They will also be able to multiply 3 digit numbers by a 1 digit number. Decimals, area, angles and co-ordinates all form part of the curriculum.

ENGLISH

Teaching will be focused on a complete understanding of all grammar points, competence in spelling and understanding the meaning of words. Reading should continue to be encouraged at home. This will embed the work being done in the classroom. Vocabulary will increase with more reading; as will the use of adjectives and adverbs for description. They will develop the use of paragraphs and become more confident in their writing of dialogue. Correct use of speech marks will continue.

SCIENCE

  • The Science programme will continue in the areas of, living things and their habitats, animals (including humans), states of matter, sounds and electricity.
  • Recognise that living things can be grouped.
  • Environments can change and this can pose dangers.
  • Understand the simple functions of the digestive system of humans.
  • Identify the different types of teeth.
  • Compare groups of materials according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases.
  • Understand temperature and its impact on materials.
  • Identify how sounds are made.
  • Find patterns in pitch and sound.
  • Recognise that sound gets fainter with distance.
  • Recognise that sound gets fainter with distance.
  • Recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit.

The work completed in Year 5 is a continuation and consolidation of work undertaken in Year 4.


MATHS

Pupils in Year 5 need, not only to work correctly but to begin to prepare for future examinations by working to time with accuracy. They should be confident with the four operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide) using 3 and subsequently 4 digits. At this stage they will also have to show their understanding by showing the process used and how they reached their answers (workings). Learning will include fractions, decimals, percentages, area and the perimeter of shapes. Pupils will learn to convert units of measurement, to draw and measure angles and calculate the size of missing angles.

ENGLISH

In Year 5 the pupil will be taught many different aspects of English which will include; accurate comprehension of written passages; thinking about figurative language and how it is used; correct spelling to demonstrate a good grasp of vocabulary; use of all the tenses. We will also be looking for imagination in their writing and descriptive work. At this stage, teachers will continue to promote reading. Regular use of the library will also be encouraged.

SCIENCE

We will continue to advance our knowledge of living things and their habitats, animals (including humans), properties and the changes of materials, earth, space and forces. This will include:
  • The different life-cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds.
  • The different life-cycles of mammals, amphibians, insects and birds.
  • Grouping together everyday materials on the basis of their properties.
  • Looking at transparency, hardness and conductivity.
  • Knowledge of solids, liquids and gases.
  • The movement of the earth and other planets relative to the sun.
  • Movement of the moon relative to the earth.
  • Explore gravity and why objects fall to earth when dropped.
  • Explore air resistance.

Pupils in Year 6 are in their final year of Key Stage 2 and of Primary School. We will be ensuring that the pupils are ready and well prepared for Secondary School.


MATHS

All four rules of numbers will be used with confidence and accuracy. The reading and understanding of test questions will be emphasised during this year. The ability to read a problem and understand the maths required to provide the answer is a fundamental of the year. We will continue to build on the skills levels achieved in Year 5. We will begin new areas: squaring a number and understanding positive and negative numbers, prime numbers and probability. Geometry and Algebra equations using calculators are some of the aspects maths will cover. Working with accuracy and speed will be practiced.

ENGLISH

Pupils in Year 6 should be able to write stimulating and exciting essays with originality. They should be able to put their thoughts and ideas down on paper in a logical progressive manner. They must be able to read a passage and answer a series of questions about the passage with accuracy and detail. They will increase their variety of reading books looking at modern fiction.

SCIENCE

In Science we will continue to build on our work from Year 5 in the areas of living things and their habitats, animals (including humans), properties, the earth and space and the forces.
  • Reasons for classifying plants and animals based on their characteristics.
  • Recognise the impact of the food we eat and lifestyle.
  • Recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things from the past.
  • Identify how animals and plants have adapted and why.
  • Recognise that light appears to travel in a straight line.
