Upper Key Stage 2 is the beginning of the transition of pupils from primary to secondary school. Throughout year 5 and 6 pupils develop greater independence and begin to have routines, e.g. homework, which begin to prepare them for the systems at secondary school.
In Year 5 pupils attend a residential trip at an outdoor activity centre and in Year 6 they have the opportunity to attend a week long residential trip to the Isle of Wight (a reward after their week of Statutory Assessment Tests – SATS).
Our top priority in Year 6 is preparing the children for their next step to Secondary School. We want them to be confident in their own abilities, both academically and socially. We work closely with Samuel Ward, as well as the other primary schools in our Trust, to provide the Year 6 children with as many opportunities to make links with new people and places, as possible.
