Year 6 Curriculum

Reading in Upper KS2


In Upper Phase, years 5 & 6, English is taught across the school week, in a range of ways.
Aside being an integral part of topic and wider curricula lessons, through each week, English lessons are taught in class daily. In these lessons, a range of writing and SPaG skills are taught and developed.

In addition, every morning, the children take part in a reading lesson to further develop their comprehension and reading skills. As part of these sessions, children complete a range of activities, including independent, group and adult guided. Every day after lunch they read either independently, in pairs or with an adult. This is part of the Accelerated Reader programme and the children take a quiz when they have completed each books to track their progress.

Every class in the phase has an interactive book corner to help promote the love of reading as well as an inquiring mind through questions, discussion points and interactive displays.
