Upper Key Stage 2:
In Upper Key Stage 2 (UKS2), we are dedicated to your children’s learning. We want to make sure that every child leaves Hunslet Moor Primary School, not only with the SATs levels that they deserve, but with a rounded education that will ready them to succeed in secondary school. We also want children in our phase to enjoy coming to school each day and to find their lessons engaging and enjoyable.
Summer 1 2017: Vincent van Gogh
This half term, UKS2 will be learning all about Vincent van Gogh. We will be creating art based on his work and learning all about his life. We will then be inviting parents in to come and have a look at the great work that we have done!
In year 6, SATs will be taking place from the 8th – 11th May. Keep you eye out for letters relating to this. We will be running a SATs breakfast that is free of charge for these dates and we encourage all year 6 to come along.
After the hard work of the SATs is done, we will be heading off to Dearne Valley for the weekend where the year 6s will be doing some really exciting adventure activities! Watch this space for photos!
Autumn 2 2016: Vikings
This half term are going to be learning all about the Vikings!
As part of this, we will be learning about where in history the Viking period was and what effect they had on our life today. We will be looking at what life was like for a Viking and how it is different to our lives now. We will be using our research skills to look at different sources and evaluate how useful the information they tell us is. We will be finding out about important historical events in this time period.
In our first Autumn half term, the children in year 5 and 6 learnt about chocolate!
We found out about the physical geography of the countries where cocoa is grown, the human geography of fair trade and what life in these countries are like. We focused predominantly on Brazil. We developed our researching and map reading skills and learnt lots of technical language. Not only did we learn about chocolate, we also made our own – applying our Maths, DT and English skills to create our own chocolate bar. At the end of term, we invited parents to come in and try the delicious chocolate bars that we made!
Alongside this, we also learnt important online safety skills and about growing up and changes they face. Science is an important part of the curriculum too and this half term Year 5 looked at materials and Year 6 focused on Evolution.
In UKS2, we are dedicated to making your children’s learning meaningful and enjoyable. However, if you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s teacher. We are always available for a chat at the end of the day. Alternatively, feel free to come and speak to the upper key stage 2 phase leader, Miss Spencer.
