Departments: Middle

Pupils in Year 3 – 6 are based in Silver, Gold, Purple, Pink and Green classes. Pupils are grouped according to age and ability to maximise progress. They follow a creative curriculum linking together all the subjects of the Primary National Curriculum differentiated and adapted to make learning relevant and fun.

Termly topics give opportunities to develop core English and Maths skills as well as developing subject knowledge and skills in all subject areas. E.g. the topic ‘Superheroes’ includes English – story writing, Maths – measure (how far, how heavy, how long?), Science – forces, History – famous heroes in history.

All five Primary classes follow the same topic but the content is differentiated to enable pupils to extend their knowledge and understanding according to their age and ability.

Teaching and learning in the Primary classes is highly practical, following on from the Early Years approach, with pupils working in different groupings, whole class, small group or 1-1, depending on the activity.

Each pupil continues to work on their Next Steps to ensure they make good progress.
