We currently have three Year 6 classes at Riverside.
Children throughout the school are involved in the creative development of their Learning Challenge. Each week the children set themselves a smaller Learning Challenge question to help drive their learning forward.
The planned themes for Year 6 are outlined below. Due to the nature of the Learning Challenge Curriculum, these themes could change.
Term 1: What would it be like to be in the shoes of people in WW2?
Term 2: What was life like without electricity?
Term 3: Why should the world be ashamed of slavery?
Term 4: Who killed Duncan?
Term 5: What’s the latest trend?
Term 6: Could you win the X-factor?
The children have a daily literacy and numeracy lesson.
In Year 6 children are assessed in line with statutory assessment tests (SATs). These take place in May 2018. It is important for all children to attend school during this assessment period.
