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. ERIS (Everyone Reads In Scargill) 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!
School Trips & Visitors
 
We have many exciting trips and visits planned in Y5 & 6, including the Isle of Wight residential which takes place from 5th-9th June 2023 this year.  See below for the first information letter.
