Hotham Primary

Upper Key Stage 2

Upper Key Stage Two is made up of two Year 5 classes and two Year 6 classes. In Upper Key Stage Two pupils have opportunities to take on more responsibility throughout the school in a variety of roles. We encourage independent learning where pupils are engaged and challenged.

Pupils experience a variety of whole class lessons, individual and group work, as well as differentiated lessons in class. Year 6 pupils participate in Booster Sessions after school in preparation for National Tests. We aim to inspire pupils to become self-motivated learners with a love of learning. Our curriculum includes subjects such as geography, history, science, art, design and technology, which are taught through exciting topics, ‘The Battle of Britain’, ‘Staying Alive’ and ‘Coasts and Rivers’ to name a few. Literacy and Numeracy are taught daily in engaging and challenging lessons.

Year 5 and 6 pupils also have the opportunity to experience ‘School Journey Week’ – a five day fun and educational experience in France or the Isle of Wight in alternate years. This is a real highlight of the year and provides lasting memories for our pupils as they transition into secondary school. The climax of the year (and a real crowd pleaser) is the end of year production. There is always much speculation early on in the year about which play/musical will be performed…

We aim to send our Year 6 pupils to secondary school with the skills and confidence to achieve success in any field they desire.

Year 5 Trip to Pizza  Express

Year 5 had an amazing trip to Pizza  Express last week.  They really enjoyed learning about different types of food especially tasting the mushrooms, tomatoes, basil leaves and olives!  It was fun wearing the aprons and hats but the best bit was making and eating the pizzas!
