Owls Class

Year 5 and 6 pupils are aged between 9 and 11 years old.

They are taught by Miss Lucy Poyntz.



The children are taught in a variety of groupings: whole class, ability grouped and in small groups when appropriate. We endeavour to develop the children’s learning skills by encouraging them to initiate their own questions and by using a wide variety of sources to find the answers and present this information to their peers.


The curriculum is based around broad topics that encompass a range of subjects. Cross-curricular links are made wherever possible to provide meaningful contexts in which the children can apply their learning, literacy and numeracy skills.


There is national testing in May for Year 6. Individual results are published to parents showing the level the child has reached in relation to the nationally expected achievements for that age group.
