Our learning

Welcome to the Year 5 and 6 learning page.


What a fantastic start to the new school year we have had. These are just some of the exciting things that the children have already learnt and been involved in so far:

  • Bewerley Park – please see the Year 5/6 Enrichment page for our fantastic photographs.
  • Y6 Bikeability – we also have some fantastic new bike resources in school for the children to use.
  • UCI event – In September, Harrogate hosted the World Road Cycling Championships with the finish line for the races being on West Park only a few hundred metres from our school. The children loved having the event so close and learnt a lot about cycling and the benefits of hosting an event with the world as its audience.
  • Writing week – this year we used the UCI as our stimulus. Because the weather was so poor during the championship, it had a huge impact on our ability to use The Stray for sports. Therefore we decided to write in a number of different ways to express our viewpoints regarding the event. The children either wrote balanced arguments, formal letters, newspaper recounts and diaries.

September 2018 – Understanding British Values ‘Rule of Law’

On Thursday 14th September, we took part in a workshop run by Miranda Duffy all about the Rule of Law. The workshop was really fun and engaging and taught us all about why we have rules and what would happen if we didn’t. We played lots of fun games, created some silly poems and used a large inflatable globe to help us understand it.
