Curriculum Information
 
Below is the curriculum overview for Y5/6, including all the subjects we topic throughout the two-year cycle.  
Curriculum expectations
 
Below are the end-of-year expectations for children in Year 5 and 6 in Maths, Reading and Writing.  These are what an expected-ability child should be able to do by the end of each year group.
Reading
 
At Scargill we want to ensure all children have a love of reading. R' Time takes place daily, shared reading happens twice a week and children have plenty of opportunity to read for pleasure. 
 
All children have a reading record which parents are expected to complete each time their child reads at home. Below is a link to recommended reads for Y5 and Y6.
 
Happy reading!
Here's a little glimpse of some of the things we get up to in Y5/6!
