Beech Class is where our children in Years 5 and 6 learn and study (ages 9 to 11). By this age, nearly all the children have a highly developed understand of English and Mathematics; those few who may still need extra help receive targeted support on an individual or group basis.
Daily English and Maths lessons continue, including weekly guided reading, and the other subjects are developed further, including with a music specialist. Our sports coach, Andy, continues to develop the children’s skills, and they receive weekly swimming lessons for most of the year.
Forest School continues and is much enjoyed by the children.
Children displaying significant skills in particular subjects receive stretching support from visiting specialists. During Year 6, the children are given extra responsibilities to prepare them for secondary school.
