Years 5 & 6
Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2
Welcome to Year 5 and 6
I am the Phase Leader of Upper Key Stage 2 and I work closely with the Year 5 and 6 team to develop a broad and balanced curriculum and ensure consistency across the phase.
At Malmesbury we have two Year 5 classes (Larch and Rowan) and two Year 6 classes (Juniper and Redwood). Our children are the oldest in the school so we expect for them to be excellent role models to the rest of the school and for them to become increasingly more independent so that they are ready for their transition onto secondary school.
Year 6 have the opportunity to attend a 5 day residential trip to Fairthorne Manor near Southampton. Parents will receive information about this at the end of Year 5. It is an excellent opportunity for children to spend some quality time with their friends before they leave Malmesbury and to allow them to experience new adventures and challenges.
Year 6 also complete their end of Key Stage SATs assessments in May. SATs are ‘Standard Assessment Tests’ given in all Primary Schools in year 2 and 6. During this week we provide the children breakfast and try to make it as calm a week as possible, allowing the children to showcase their full potential.
More information about the school day, our curriculum and home learning is available by following the links below.
If you need to speak urgently to any of our teachers, a brief message can be given in the morning or at the end of the day. If you need more time, please let the office know and they will be able to make an appointment for you at a suitable time.
Myself and the Upper Key Stage 2 team are very much looking forward to working with you and your child and sharing in their development and success.
